Zionists Lay Immigration Protest Plans

Download PDF for this date

Polish Zionists failed in their attempt to form a united front in protest against immigration restrictions imposed by the Palestine governments.

Strenuous efforts to achieve unanimity similar to that which characterized the general strike carried out by Palestinian Jewry last Wednesday were unsuccessful. The various factions will hold individual protest meetings.

The Zionist executive, together with the League for Labor Palestine, will hold meetings all this work to “manifest our sympathy with the general strike in Palestine and the political fight now being waged by the Jewish Agency for Palestine.”

Another group made up of the Mizrachi, orthodox Zionists, the Zionist Revisionists, the Et Libnoth group and the Agudath Israel, Orthodox Jewish group, will carry out a one-hour strike and hold protest meetings on June 4.
