Israel's social protest movement is gearing up for a mass protest march on Saturday, preparing to draw bigger numbers than ever. Some put up signs, others spread the word through social media, but the Public Movement group decided to hit the streets with a dance.

Sixty demonstrators participated in a protest by rushing into busy Tel Aviv intersections and dancing in circles to the tunes of folk music. The dancers jumped into three intersections, blocking traffic as they danced in circles for two-and-a-half minutes.
