This picture was taken November 21, 2011, outside the Knesset, during a demonstration against the high cost of living. It started to rain and the protest signs got soaked. So they were hung up to dry on an improvised clothesline. The visible parts of each sign say “Bibi” and “R Finance” (the R is at the end of Sar, Minister).
Also drying in the Jerusalem wind is a makeshift raincoat, made from a garbage bag.
I suppose if you’re careful with your rally gadget maintenance, you should be able to re-use the same signs and the same raincoat for many years to come.
It’s another side benefit of a stable coalition government, I suppose…Yori Yanover
