This article focuses on the spatial politics of the political protest that held in Tel Aviv, analysing the particular strategies it used to activise urban public space. It initially reflected the lack of affordable housing but as, as it materialised and expanded in public space, it also incorporated more marginalised publics and places, addressing longstanding socio-spatial inequalities between Israel’s ‘centre’ and ‘periphery’, and advancing a message of ‘social justice’—with the noted exception of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. This analysis points pointing to the spatial politics of centrality, multiplicity and ‘media-space’, a mutually enforcing relationship between physical public space and mainstream and social media
