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 Unions 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, Army Radio reported Tuesday.

In the meantime, social-justice activists gathered in Jerusalem's Wohl Rose Garden opposite the Knesset demanding that the government break the two-year budget in order to reassess economic priorities, Army Radio said.
