This article analyzes the origins and development of the social protest that took place in Israel in the summer of 2011. It can be seen as a part of the world wave of protest resulting from the world economic crisis. The hypothesis of this research is that the historic pressures generated by a democracy and a party system that have become less representative than needed created a lack of equilibrium or democratic deficit in the framework of which new types of collective action develop. This opens space for new networks of informal action and the new collective identities that have come about in the bosom of this society and seek democratic representation.
