13-08-08 Occupy Tel Aviv #9 - demonstration between a tycoon's tower and the IDF command and control

The demonstration protested the latest austerity measures, unaffordable housing... The demonstration was unique, since side by side you had members of hard core social protest activists, idenfitying with the Israeli "Black Panthers", and extreme right protesters, identifying ith the US "Don't Tread on Me" groups.
Although the demonstration was small, less than 100 people, a major traffic intersection was blocked, facing on the one side Azrieli Center tower, the signature building of one of handful tycoons that today control the Israeli economy, and the IDF command and control center with its signature building with heli pad on top. The demonstration was the first led by a motorcycle posse.. :) Police conduct was exemplary.
