The chairman of the committee for social change, Professor Manuel Trajtenberg, visited the social protest tent city at Kikar Hamedina in Tel Aviv on Sunday evening  Trajtenberg, who heads the team appointed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to examine ways to reduce the cost of living, said that he initially refused Netanyahu's original proposal to head the committee, and he was only convinced after a further four-hour meeting.

Trajtenberg told people who had gathered that he participated in the first and second weekly protest, and was absent only from the third - which was attended by his daughters.
