18 Pickets Arrested, Freed

Eighteen of a group of Zionist youths who picketed the British Consulate today protesting against the Palestine land ordinance were arrested on disorderly conduct charges but were discharged shortly afterward when brought into Magistrates’ Court. Police said the pickets, carrying placards, walked before the building, shouting and creating a disturbance and refused an order to disperse. Those arrested included eight women.
