Hundreds of Israelis clash with police in social justice protest

Taking to the streets in Tel Aviv over social justice. Scores of Israeli demonstrators clash with police when a protest against the arrest of a social reform activist spins out of control. Police officers arrested 85 people. The demonstrators enter a bank. A grassroots protest movement launched last July as a cluster of student tent-squatters demanding lower living costs is beginning to spread into other parts of the country. The rallies have led Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to form a panel which has recommended raising welfare spending and lowering defense expenditures. Activists say the reforms have not gone far enough. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
