Livni: Housing protests are a wonderful form of expression

The tent protests over housing prices are a wonderful form of expression for young people who are not willing to simply complain while being couch-potatoes, opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) said on Wednesday.
"The couch [setting] has transformed into tents, regardless if it's in Rothschild, Kiryat Shmona or the Negev," Livni said. "The problem is not elitist young people from Tel Aviv, I meet them in the Negev, Sderot, Hatzor Haglilit - everywhere."
Livni continued: "The attempt to portray the protesters as left- or right-wing is total nonsense and it is their [the demonstrators] right to express their opinion in every topic, especially this one."
