Jerusalem students took to the streets instead of the schoolbooks on Sunday morning in a march and protest against the government’s inability to prevent the country from heading toward another election.
The Jerusalem Student Council organized the event to “help promote the power of students to influence government decisions,” they said in a statement.
The student council said they were purposely missing their lessons for a “good cause” to “make it clear to the government that it’s time to make the right decision and prevent a third election.”
“We ask but one thing,” it said. “Come en masse so that we can change this decision and prevent a huge loss of money.”
The protesting children met at 11 a.m. at the Rose Garden and marched toward the Knesset steps.
With four days left until the end of the mandate to form a government, hope is dwindling within the Knesset, as negotiations between the leading Likud and Blue and White parties are at a stalemate.
