Social justice protests were scheduled to take place in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem on Saturday night.

The protests were taking place with full police authorization. Several roads were scheduled to be closed to traffic because of the protest in Tel Aviv, including Rothschild Blvd. and Ibn Gavriol Street.

The protest in Tel Aviv was scheduled to take place at 9:00 p.m., with demonstrators marching from Habima Square  to the Tel Aviv Museum compound. Among those scheduled to speak at the culminating rally was Stav Shafir, one of the leaders of last year's Rothschild Boulevard tent city protest.

In Jerusalem, protesters were expected to march from Gan Hasus to Paris Square, across from the Prime Minister's Residence.

The Haifa protest march was scheduled to begin at Meirhoff Square and end with a rally at Ben Gurion Boulevard.
