Minorities Demonstration in Polish Sejm

Download PDF for this date

Deputies representing all minority nationalities staged a protest demonstration in the Polish Assembly (Sejm) following the adoption of a resolution withdrawing parliamentary immunity from two Socialist deputies in connection with the recent labor disturbances in Cracow. The deputies involved are Bobrowski and Stanczyk, members of the Polish Socialist Party. The question was tumultously debsted eight hours. Following the announcement that there was a majority in favor of the resolution, the Socialist, Peasant and other radical deputies boisterously left the Sejm, singing besides the “Rote Fahne”, the Jewish “Hatikwah”, the Ukrainian “Nepora” and the White Russian “Odwiekowoy Spalt”.
