German Trade Union Congress Demands Law Banning Hate Propaganda

The executive of the 6,000,000-member German Trades Union Congress sent a demand to the West German Government for action to implement a resolution approved by the Congress calling for a federal law to ban race hatred propaganda, it was disclosed today.

A letter to Chancellor Ludwig Erhard and leaders of the three Parliamentary parties from the labor organization pointed out that while Article 26 of the West German constitution forbids all activities which could disturb peaceful co-existence among the West German people, there was no precise law on the problem.
