World Conference of Chaluzim Protests Against Palestine Immigration Restriction

October 19, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A resolution protesting against the restrictions on immigration to Palestine and the obstacles placed in the way of Jewish immigration by the officials of the Palestine Government, has been adopted by the Conference of the World Organization Heholuz which has been held here. The Zionist Organization is called upon to take steps to safeguard the freedom of Jewish immigration to Palestine.

The colonization work in Palestine is imperilled by the fact that the Chaluzim and the Jewish working-class population as a whole are so little represented in the immigration movement to Palestine, says the resolution. The immigration of Chaluzim and working-class Jews, it proceeds, must be the first and decisive factor in the immigration movement, and the distribution of immigration certificates in Palestine and the Diaspora must be carried out according to this view.
