Six Changes the Protesters Want to See: Israeli Protests

This is a cross post by Marc’s Words

The following are what the major news outlets are reporting that the demonstrators wish to see:

Minimizing social inequalities (economic, gender-based and national ) and creating social cohesion;

Altering the main principles of the economic system;

Lowering the cost of living, achieving full employment and state-imposed price controls on basic items;

Giving a clear priority to the areas on the outskirts of cities, both in the social and the geographic sense;

Treating the essential needs of the weaker population in the country, with an emphasis on the handicapped, the elderly and the sick;

Investment by the state in its citizenry in the fields of education, health and personal safety, and providing genuine solutions to the housing shortage, from transportation to public infrastructure.

Pretty damn socialist stuff!
