Latin-american Workers Will Urge Creation of Palestine As Jewish State After the War

A proposal that Palestine be declared a Jewish state, after the war, will be submitted in the name of five million organized Latin American workers to the World Labor conference which will be held this year in London, it was revealed here today by Lombardo Toledano, secretary of the Latin American Labor Confederation.

Mr. Toledano disclosed this plan in the course of a conference with Louis Segal, secretary of the Jewish National Workers Alliance. He expressed the belief that the conference will endorse the proposal. In the meantime, he intends to circularize a memorandum among all labor groups in the Latin American countries affiliated with the Confederation urging them to organize special labor committees to support Jewish aspirations in Palestine.
