The tent protest quickly mushroomed, with dozens of similar encampments sprouting in towns and cities across the country.
It won widespread support, sparking weekly demonstrations that eventually attracted hundreds of thousands of Israelis, breaking records in the Jewish state and drawing extensive coverage from the local media.
It peaked on September 3, when almost half a million people took part in rallies nationwide, largely fading away with the arrival of winter.
With the return of warm weather however, the protests have started up again.
After last year's mass protests the government set up a committee to look into peopleâ€™s grievances and promised reforms in housing, childcare and other areas. For far however, little has been implemented.
