This essay focusses on the protests that occurred in Tel Aviv during the summer of 2011, problematizing the intersection of global, regional, and local factors that shaped this process of political mobilization. The authors consider the forms and limits of the attempt at creating new forms of agency in a context that is still significantly marked by the ongoing Palestinian question and the military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The essay assesses the summer 2011 protests as grounded in a Zionist paradigm. As such, the latter question mechanisms of wealth redistribution, but not the Jewish-Zionist nature of the State of Israel. Finally, the essay describes the failed attempts at creating a trans-ethnic alliance between Jews and Palestinians on the grounds of a common agenda based on social rights rather than nationalist agendas.
