Argentine Jews Will Not Protest Police Ban on Meetings. Use of Yiddysh at Gatherinse

The DAIA, central representative body of Argentine Jewry, has decided not to protest police bans on any meeting or probabilities on the use of the Yiddish language by speakers at public gatherings. The decision was adopted following a request by the Zionist Central Council that recent bans an Zionist meetings and press conferences be protested by Jewish organizations.

The DAIA stated that it believes that if requests for individual meetings, press conferences and the use of Yiddish by speakers who are more familiar with Yiddish than Spanish are made to the police, they will generally be granted. The organization pointed to the fact that Moses Kostryski, an Argentine Peals Zionist, who forbidden to hold a press conference about two weeks ago, was later permitted to deliver a speech in Yiddish on the same subject — his recent visit to Palestine before a fraternal group.

Leaflets signed by the Irgua Zval Leuni have been distributed in Buanos #### by Argentine Jews. The leaflets call on the Argentine population to support the ### in Palestine and charge Britain with using “Kazi tactics” to suppress the Jewish community there. Advertisements signed by, the American Hebrew Committee of National Liberation were published this week in La Razon, one of the leading liberal ##### in the city. They include a resent statement by the Committee calling on the International Rad Cross to investigate conditions in Palestine.
