Palestine Laborites Meet to Protest Immigration Ban

Download PDF for this date

Mass meetings, called by the Jewish labor councils were held Sunday in this city, Tel Aviv and Haifa to protest against the restriction of Jewish immigration “during this period of Palestine prosperity when there is a large demand for Jewish workers.”

Resolutions to this effect were adopted as well as other protests against the Government attitude toward tourists. Resolutions urging the Eighteenth World Zionist Congress, now meeting at Prague, to make the subject of Jewish immigration in Palestine its chief activity were also adopted and dispatched to the Congress.
