TAU graduate student Barak Segal, who was one of the leaders of the July 2011 social justice movement along with Daphni Leef and Stav Shaffir, decided to protest the high cost of housing by putting up a tent on the university’s campus and reside in it starting Wednesday.

Segal decided to recreate the tent protest, which took place on Rothschild Boulevard in the summer of 2011, after his landlord raised the rent of his one bedroom Ramat Gan apartment by almost 10 percent.
