A mass demonstration against violence and for freedom of expression, which was to have taken place here Saturday night, was cancelled because of meteorological forecasts of inclement weather. The organizers, the Peace Now movement and the Labor Alignment, feared that heavy rain, high winds and a cold spell, with possible snow in Jerusalem and its environs, would greatly reduce the expected attendance. They rally was to have memorialized Emil Grunzweig who was killed when a hand grenade was hurled into a group of Peace Now demonstrators on February 10. Nine other persons were injured in the incident opposite the Prime Minister’s office.
