London (May. 19)
At a mass meeting of members of the textile trades of England here last night, it was resolved to boycott German goods and services in protest against persecution of the Jews in Germany. Two thousand members of the industry participated in the meeting, over which Lord Melchett presided. Several members of the British Parliament addressed the meeting.
Lord Melchett, championing the boycott, referred to the fear of repercussions in the form of German retaliation, but stressed his belief that, nevertheless, the Jews must use everything in their power to force the German Government to restore their rights to its Jewish citizens.
