A group of young people will continue a demonstration that began Thursday by once again sleeping in tents at the Bima Square in Tel Aviv and Zion Square in Jerusalem on Friday in protest of the price of apartment rents.

Hundreds of people slept in the two squares overnight Thursday, in hopes that the government would take steps to stop rising apartment prices.

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Holdai arrived at the Bima Square, but was not allowed by the protesters to speak, Israel Radio reported.
