Several hundred people took part in an open air public meeting in solidarity with Syrian Jews. The meeting, in the sports field of the Sephardic Athletic Club, was organized with the support of the DAIA and several other mostly Sephardic organizations. Sephardic leader Ruben Beraja, Israel charge d’offaires Herzl Inbar and Argentine Socialist leader Luis Pan addressed the meeting. A message was sent to the Syrian Ambassador here asking him to transmit to his government the request of Argentine Jewry that Syrian Jews should be allowed to emigrate and that persecution against Syrian Jews be halted.
