Disability activists block a major intersection in Tel Aviv in protest over what they say are insufficient funds from the state.

The protesters cause the cessation of traffic at the Azrieli Junction, one of the city’s busiest areas, at the height of rush hour.

“Finance Minister [Avigdor] Liberman refuses to meet with us,” protest leader Eyal Cohen tells the Kan public broadcaster. “We have recordings and video where he has promised to raise the allowance to meet the minimum wage — and he’s a liar.”
