Communist-mapam Delegation Protests to Knesset on Food Shortage

The praesidium of the Knesset last night received an eight-man delegation from a joint Communist-Mapam demonstration protesting the shortage of food.

The delegation was sent from a public meeting which was held earlier in front of the Histadrut headquarters in Tel Aviv. The meeting was addressed by Mapam deputies Moshe Erem and Itzhak Ben Aharon and other speakers who called on their listeners to protest the government’s economic policy. The eight-man delegation was accompanied by workers who came here from Tel Aviv, Haifa and elsewhere to register the same protest.
