The march goes on

Seven days until the protesters in Israel stage their Million Man March. Meanwhile this evening, Israelis hit the streets for the six consecutive week. Among tonight's participants was Noam Shalit, Gilad's father, who  addressed the thousands of protestors:
My family and I are amazed at the wonderful protest spread all across the country, with hundreds of thousands of residents pleading (for the government) to listen to them. Social justice is also restoring the values that generations of fighters were educated by – we do not leave IDF soldiers behind.
Did our leaders forget these values? Camaraderie, mutual guarantee – are they planning to privatize these values as well?
