Anti-semitic Demonstrators in London to Face Trial on Monday

The four men arrested last week for an anti-Semitic demonstration against Sir Bernard Waley-Cohen, London’s new Lord Mayor, were remanded in 10 pounds bail each for trial next Monday, when they were arraigned in court here today on charges of “insulting behavior.”

The men were members of a group of British Fascists flaunting banners and sheeting slogans proclaiming “We don’t want a Jewish Lord Mayor.” They also threw firecracker which burst behind the horses pulling the Lord Mayor’s ceremonial, gilded coach as was on his way to take his oath of office.
