Brazilian “united Front” to Fight Anti-semitism

A DEMOCRATIC “UNITED FRONT,” ORGANIZED THROUGHOUT BRAZIL FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, TODAY ADOPTED A PROGRAM INCLUDING OPPOSITION TO INTEGRALISM, THE BRAZILIAN FORM OF FASCISM, AND TO RACIAL AND RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION. DR. ARMANDO SALLES OLIVEIRA, A DESCENDANT OF THE MARANOS, ARISTOCRATIC SPANISH JEWISH FAMILIES CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY DURING THE INQUISITION, IS THE UNITED FRONT’S CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT.

PERSECUTED JEWS WERE INVITED TO COME TO BRAZIL BY LIBERAL SPEAKERS AT A MASS MEETING HELD HERE LAST NIGHT TO PROTEST AGAINST THE RECENT POGROMS IN POLAND. DR. US AALDO CAYUBY, DEMOCRAT, CONDEMNING POGROMS, ASSURED JEWS THAT BRAZIL WOULD NEVER BE ANTI-SEMITIC, AND DR. TEISHARA PINTO INVITED TO COME TO “A COUNTRY WHERE ALL ARE FREE.”

SHARP PROTEST AGAINST THE POLISH GOVERNMENT’S POLICY TOWARD THE JEWS WAS VOICED IN A RESOLUTION ADOPTED BY THE MEETING. IT APPEALED TO THE DEMOCRATIC PEOPLES OF THE WORLD TO BRING PRESSURE ON POLAND TO FORCE HER TO RESPECT INTERNATIONAL TREATIES INTENDED TO SAFEGUARD HER MINORITIES.
