Download PDF for this date

All of the Bundist (Jewish Labor Party) aldermen in the city of Nowydor have been arrested. Dissatisfied with the mayor of the city because he had refused to admit an interpellation regarding the budget the Bundists had arranged a demonstration accompanied by shouts at the meeting of the city council.

As a result of the demonstration the majority in the council sued the Bundists and the latter were sentenced to a week in jail or a fine of 231 zlotys. Bundist sympathizers arranged a demonstration in front of the jail demanding the release of the aldermen. The police dispersed the demonstrators.
