Israel's social protesters erect 'Tower of Justice' on coastal highway
One activist says he will not descend from the tower until housing demands are met.
Social protest activists erected Tuesday morning a compound in the spirit of the 1930s-era tower-and-stockade settlements, alongside the coastal highway, near Kibbutz Yakum and the Ronit Ranch. The compound, which they have called Migdal Zedek (Tower of Justice), was set up after nightfall Monday, at the initiative of the social coalition. It includes a wooden wall and a watchtower.
