Workers Demonstrate in Tel Aviv Streets; Demand More Food

Several thousand workers today marched in a street demonstration demanding more food and stronger official action to curb the blackmarket. Later about 400 of them left for Jerusalem to present their demands to the Israel Parliament.

The executive of the Histadrut, Israel’s Federation of Labor, issued a declaration urging the workers not to participate in the demonstration. The declaration pointed out that the Histadrut is fighting the blackmarket and that no demonstrations were needed to get such action.
