Download PDF for this date

The recently-organized Jewish Labor Committee will hold a conference in Town Hall June 25 to discuss and act on several measures to intensify the anti-Nazi campaign here and to aid Jewish and labor victims of Nazism and Fascism.

More than a thousand delegate representing the Workmen’s Circle, Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, International Ladies Garment Workers Union, United Hebrew Trades, Jewish Socialist Verband and other affiliated Jewish labor organizations are expected to attend.

Prominent representatives of the American and Jewish labor movements will address the conference.

The following proposals will be taken up:

1—To intensify the boycott against German-made goods and machinery in the shops;

2—To launch a campaign to combat and counter-attack the spread of Nazi and Fascist propaganda in the United States;

3—To intensify and make more effective the carrying out of the boycott resolution adopted by the A. F. of L., and

4—To raise a fund to aid victims of Nazism and Fascism in Germany and Austria, and to help the underground movement of trade unions and Socialists in those countries.
