Ten Members of Hashomer Hatzair Arrested in Argentina for Publicly Ridiculing Beigin

Ten members of the Hashomer Hatzair were arrested today for disseminating leaflets in which Menachem Beigin, former leader of the Irgun, who is now visiting this country, was termed a “fascist and murderer.” The arrests took place following a warning by the police against such anti-Beigin propaganda.

Addressing the Argentine Congress on the question of civil liberties, the Peronist Deputy S. Visca today said that thanks to Peron and his wife the Jews in Argentina are now safer than under radical governments.
