Jewish Liberation Project Will Demonstrate Against Torczyner’s Vietnam Views

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish liberation Project, a group of young radicals who say they are committed to Socialist Zionism, will demonstrate at the headquarters of the Zionist Organization of American here tomorrow to protest a recent statement by ZOA president Jacques Torczyner supporting the Nixon Administration’s Vietnam War policies.

The group said the purpose of the demonstration was to make it clear that Mr. Torczyner does not have the right to speak for the Zionist movement. They called his support of the Nixon war policies “a betrayal of Jewish and Zionist ideals and of the most vital concerns of the Jewish people.”

The Jewish Liberation Project claims in its constitution that it opposes capitalism “and all other systems which concentrate wealth and power in the hands of elites” and that while it is unequivocally committed to the existence and security of Israel, it does not necessarily support the actions and policies of the present Israeli Government.
