Jewish displaced persons staged protest meetings today throughout the United States zone of Germany against the refusal of the International Refugee Organization to facilitate their emigration to Israel.

Various speakers in the caps likened the I.R.O. action to “British power politics.” Resolutions adopted at several of the meetings stressed the determination paths,” and called upon the United Nations to “chastise I.R.O. officials at Geneva who are responsible for this policy.”
