A protest against the policy of the Turkish government to force the national minorities to give up their claim to the minority rights guaranteed under the treaty of Lausanne was despatched by the Greek government to the League of Nations, it was learned here today.

In its memorandum, the Greek government protests against the Angora government’s violation of the Treaty of Lausanne and the International Minorities Convention. The memorandum states that the Turkish government, following the action of the seventy notables of the Jewish National Assembly, is now forcing the Greeks in Constantinople to renounce their minority rights.
