London Jews Launch Drive on Anti-semitic Agitators

Download PDF for this date

Jewish organizations yesterday launched their first offensive against anti-Semitic agitators in England.

Under the sponsorship of the new coordinating defense committee established recently by the Board of Deputies of British Jews to combat anti-Jewish agitation here, a big open-air rally was held at Hyde Park where Sir Oswald Mosley’s Blackshirts and other Fascist groups have recently been conducting their anti-Jewish meetings.

The committee is organizing a series of meeting in districts where the Fascists have been most active, including Shoreditch.
