"We will not stop, we will not give in and we will give hope to many people who are struggling to warm their homes this winter," said David Mizrahi, one of the organizers of the protests.

The movement, which began in Israel just a week ago, in mid-December, was followed by the "Yellow Vest" wave of protests in France in May 2018, which was mainly directed against the high seas of living people and rising fuel prices.

The Israeli copy has similar goals: Stop rising electricity and water prices, which they believe will directly affect food prices.

"The government is doing everything possible not to solve the problem, to lower the cost of living immediately! Lower the gas price!" Orly Barlev, another protest organizer, said. "The Minister of Finance and Energy could change the price of gas tomorrow and cut electricity prices and the cost of living."

The movement has already made some progress, encouraging Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon to speak with Osem's CEO. Osem then frozen the price increase.
