|The tent city camped along one of the busiest corners of the Israeli city of Tel Aviv has all the hallmarks of the Arab Spring and has become a rallying point for Israelis faced with economic woes.
On Saturday, more than a quarter of a million people took to the streets across the country, marking one of the biggest public protests in Israel's history.
What began as a simple protest against the high cost of living has turned into something far deeper.
Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, has announced a committee to look into implementing economic reforms.
The protesters say this is a good start, but they are not going to start breaking down the tent city until the reforms are actually made.
