The heads of the National Student Union met with the Trajtenberg Committee on Tuesday, according to Army Radio.

Chairman Itzik Shmuli addressed the recent eviction order for Tel Aviv tents saying, "Our request from the committee is to feel the hope that has suddenly grown in Israel. People are in tents because they haven't received an appropriate government answer and they are holding onto the pegs so that they won't fall into the abyss."

The Tel Aviv Municipality announced Tuesday that tent cities in various parts of Tel Aviv - including Rothschild Boulevard, Levinsky Park, Nordau Boulevard, and Ben-Gurion - must be disassembled by Rosh Hashana.

The municipal announcement followed the National Student Union's disassembly of their tent on Rothschild Boulevard on Sunday.

Dozens of activists blocked the intersection of Hahashmonaim and Rothschild streets in protest of the eviction notices.
