Fine Polish Zionists Who Protested 1930 White Paper

Nine young Zionists who were arrested last October for participating in a demonstration in front of the British embassy as a protest against the White Paper were fined fifty zlotys in a local court today. The nine young Zionists were part of a crowd of over a thousand people who staged an impromptu protest meeting on the night of October 22, 1930 in front of the British embassy in Warsaw. They were charged with shouting “down with England.” The young Zionists have appealed from the sentence.
