Municipal employees throughout Israel went on a one-day strike in support of social justice.

The Union of Local Authorities in Israel authorized the municipal workers to close their offices in support of a Facebook-organized general strike on Monday. There was also no garbage collection or street cleaning. The local authority in Jerusalem declined to join the strike.

More than 23,500 Israeli Facebook users indicated that they would participate in the strike.
