Dozens of students protested outside Tnuva chairperson Zehava Cohen's house in Ramat Hasharon Sunday morning.

"We will lower product prices until the government reaches a long-term solution," Cohen said to protesters, expressing her support for the social justice movement which has developed throughout Israel over the past two months.

The student boycott of Tnuva was set to start on Monday, and will continue until the High Holidays.

"Starting tomorrow, we will not buy products from Tnuva. We need a permanent and significant reduction of product prices,"  said Tel Aviv University Student Union chairman Ran Livneh. "I encourage the public to join the boycott and not to buy dairy products from Tnuva until prices are reduced and until the Trajtenberg Committee announces its decisions," he added.
