Protesters in Tel Aviv make their way down Arlozorov Street toward the Histadrut workers union headquarters to demand that chairman Arnon Bar David declare a large-scale strike to pressure the government into agreeing to a deal for the release of the hostages from Gaza.

Outside the building, protesters chant “Strike now!”

The move is a break from previous weeks when protesters instead marched to the Ayalon highway.
