Social justice movement protest at Kikar Rabin

With Ibn Gvirol Street on its east side, Hen Boulevard on its west side, Frishman Street on its south end, and Sderot Ben Gurion to its north, Kikar Rabin (Rabin Square) is central Tel Aviv’s largest open public city square.  Kikar Rabin, formerly Kings of Israel Square, was renamed after the assassination of then-Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin at a peace rally in 1995.  It contains a memorial to the slain Prime Minister as well as a memorial to Holocaust victims. To this day, the square is a popular gathering spot: in a month, the square could feasibly host a social justice movement protest, an IDF exhibition, a political rally, the beginning of a road race, a historical display, and a commemoration ceremony.  The square is lined by popular cafes and restaurants; on its north side sits City Hall.
