Cardboard Cut-Outs Make Neighbourhood Statement in Tel Aviv

There is nothing like fake prostitutes on every street corner to reduce the price of rent, which is exactly what was done in a Tel Aviv neighbourhood.

If you are not a property owner and you fight against the unfair rises in the rents month after month, this might be your solution.

You can easily do it yourself: Make cardboard prostitutes and leave them standing on the corner of every street. In this way, the price of the rents of your area will go down, and the modest one-room apartment (the owner calls it a loft) will have a payment according to your possibilities.

As the rent decreases, the neighborhood population of beautiful (well, possibly beautiful...cardboard nonetheless) ladies will increase.

This idea was created in Tel Aviv by Veecee in order to protest against the rise in the rents that has been more than significant lately. More pics in Flickr .
