0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem


News digest about public transportation:

“ Tomorrow, Monday, between 10:00 and 12:00, all Egged drivers throughout the country will go on strike and the company's activities will be stopped completely, in protest against the violence demonstrated by passengers towards the drivers and a cry against the authorities' helplessness in handling the matter.”

– Yaniv Levi, Head of the Workers Union
“[…] Egged's management believes that the strike is clearly illegal and that there is no legitimate cause for the strike. Egged spokesman Ron Ratner: "This strike is madness and a fabrication of disproportionate harm to passengers and users of public transportation throughout the country. This strike was not coordinated with the management of Egged and we strongly oppose it and call upon the Worker’s Union to withdraw its decision o shut down.”

– Egged
“Dear Maariv Lenoar [2],
As a Jerusalem resident, Mike Pence’s visit is f**king me over. How long will it be until I my US citizenship is born?” [1]

– Michal Porat

0202 Editor’s notes:
[1] The Egged strike and Mike Pence’s visit are creating changes and delays to public transportation over the next few days. The two events, due to their simultaneous timing, perfectly capture the frustration of Jerusalem residents.
[2] Maariv Lenoar is a popular teen magazine in Israel. The post alludes to a column in the magazine where readers write to the magazine concerning different personal problems.
