(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A resolution protesting against the economic oppression policy of various governments against the national minorities was adopted yesterday by the National Minorities Congress which is in session here. The resolution also protests against the enforcement of compulsory Sunday rest for those minority groups who observe another day as Sabbath.

The Congress also unanimously adopted a resolution concerning state citizenship rights, following a report submitted by Dr. Nurok. A resolution on the language question and franchise for national minorities was also passed by the Congress.
