The State of Israel says "Enough!"

And takes to the streets: hundreds of workers and pensioners from the Haifa area and the surrounding area will participate today in a demonstration that will start the national protest wave of the Histadrut against the cost of living.

During the coming weeks, and following the Hedi! campaign, the Histadrut is expected to hold a series of demonstrations across the country calling on the incoming government to immediately implement an emergency plan to lower the cost of living.

The first demonstration, as mentioned, will be held tomorrow at the government building in Haifa at 1:30 p.m.

The details of the next demonstrations are below.

It will be emphasized that although the current struggle is addressed to the decision makers, the demonstrations will not be political in nature.

The effects of the rise in inflation, the wave of price increases in the economy, the erosion of the wages of the workers and the poverty imposed on the pensioners - are not an issue of right and left.

The real fight!

It is a social struggle and the participants of the demonstrations from among the workers, pensioners, committees and trade unions - will reflect all shades of Israeli society.

Histadrut Chairman Arnon Bar-David:

"Every day we get up to another line about price increases, and we don't see the end. It's impossible for a rich country to have poor people living who don't close the month. It's time for all of us to say 'enough!' Today, from the right and the left, religious and secular, workers and pensioners are taking to the streets - and demanding that the new government bring order here, restore sanity and act for an immediate reduction in the cost of living.

I look forward to seeing you, citizens, standing proudly alongside the representatives of the Histadrut, the workers and the committees - and together, as one front And united, they say clearly and decisively - no more, not on the backs of the Israeli public. We want to make a living and live with dignity. With this call we will all go out into the territory from north to south, because together we have the power to influence. The Histadrut will continue this just struggle as long as it takes,And we will not hesitate to act until we see a real engagement of the decision makers and immediate solutions that help to remove the economic sword that is raised against Israeli society."

When will the demonstrations take place and where?

We will remind that the planned demonstrations come after the Histadrut came up with an information campaign in Hebrew, Russian and Arabic, on websites, in the press and in other media, directing the public to a detailed explanation of the move and the economic plan to reduce the cost of living.

In the plan to reduce the cost of living, the Histadrut presents its recommendations to the decision-makers on a variety of topics, including: increasing employee incomes, strengthening the pensioners, education and family, housing prices, transportation, electricity expenses, water and property taxes.

The headquarters of the struggle includes heads of professional unions, heads and members of committees, from the Histadrut, representatives of retirees and representatives of the working and learning youth movement.
