Bureau to Form World Body to Aid Palestine Workers

Download PDF for this date

A bureau has just been established here for the purpose of organizing a World Congress to help the Jewish workers of Palestine. This congress will take place in the middle of September in either Danzig or Warsaw.

The call for the Congress was issued by the General Federation of Jewish Laborers in Palestine (Histadruth Ha’Ovdim), which has sent an invitation to participate to all the “Leagues for Working Palestine” which have been organized in European centers, to the Gewerkshaften Campaign in the United States and to many other Socialist and labor bodies.

At a meeting of the National Executive of the Gewerkshaften Campaign this week here in New York, it was decided unanimously to accept the invitation to participate in the World Congress for the Jewish workers of Palestine and to send a representative delegation from this country.
