Download PDF for this date

Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko, who was faced by Jewish protesters when he landed at London airport yesterday, was met by them again today as he arrived at No. 10 Downing St. for a meeting with Prime Minister Edward Heath. The demonstrations for the rights of Soviet Jews went off without incident. A march on the Soviet Embassy will take place here tomorrow night under the auspices of the Board of Deputies of British Jews and 28 other Jewish groups. The demonstrators plan to give Mr. Gromyko a letter stating the attitude of British Jewry on the mistreatment of Jews in the USSR.
