Revisionists and Laborites Clash at Vienna Meeting

Download PDF for this date

Five persons were slightly injured and one Revisionist, extreme right wing Zionist, and one Laborite Zionist, were arrested in the course of a serious fight that occurred here last night when Revisionists attempted to break up a meeting arranged by the Laborites to discuss the Eighteenth World Zionist Congress, which closed at Prague. The meeting, which closed prematurely, was to have been addressed by Berel Katzenelson and Israel Meriminsky, Palestine labor leaders.

According to the police report, peace was established only after heavy police reinforcements had arrived on the scene and intervened. The arrested Zionists were released after being detained for a short time.
