Glenn Richter, national coordinator of the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry, and Morey Schapira, coordinator for the New England SSSJ, reported that “there is not one iota of change in the anti-Jewish policies of the USSR since the announced Jackson Amendment ‘agreement.'” The two, who Just returned from a week of intensive discussions with activist leaders in Moscow and Leningrad, said they found the activists “extremely concerned about the Jackson Amendment and urged concerned Americans to do all they can to insure implementation by Congress. A major concern of the activists, Richter and Schapira said, was the desperate condition of the POCs.
