Convention of Canadian Socialist Party Supports Jewish Demands for Palestine

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The national convention of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation, the Socialist Party of Canada, today unanimously adopted a resolution on Palestine offered by Stanley Knowles, Winnipeg member of the Federal Parliament, and seconded by Abraham Klein, editor of the Canadian Jewish Chronicle. The resolution reads:

“The convention strongly urges upon the government of this country and Great Britain, which has a special responsibility, to rescind and revoke the appeasement – tainted British White Paper. It is clearly recognized that this White Paper is a repudiation of internationally recognized obligations and a flagrant breach of trust to the Jewish people. We urge these governments to implement fully the Balfour Declaration to facilitate the establishment of Palestine as a Jewish homeland which should lead to development of a Jewish commonwealth, with the clear understanding that religious, economic, political and language rights of all sections of the population will be safeguarded and guaranteed.”
