Arab and Jewish Workers in Palestine Join in Strike Against British Army Camps

Jewish and Arab workers marched together through the main streets of Tel Aviv today, in a demonstration against the administration of the British military camps here.

Five-hundred Arabs and Jews are in their fifth day of a strike precipitated by what they charge was the unjustified dismissal of two young women workers, and the refusal of the camp authorities to recognize their bargaining committee. A joint delegation today called on the Commanding Officer in the Tel Aviv area demanding that be act to settle the strike.

(Ahmed Ahmoud, one of the two Arabs named to the Histadruth delegation to the World Trade Union Conference in Paris, was kidnapped by unknown persons before he could leave Palestine, according to the other delegates who have arrived in the French capital.)
