The article presents the infitada, a mass movement that arose in Israel on July 14, 2011 where a group of people who organized through Facebook pitched tents on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv. It cites "Social Justice" as the main slogan in Israel which was coined in Cairo, Egypt during the protest movements in Tahrir Square. It indicates that the protest was not just on the issue of lack of housing but also about the whole economy as an entire social class joined the movement.
