The Palestine Federation of Labor was charged with responsibility for the workers’ demonstration and riot which occurred last Monday in the Jewish colony, Petach Tikvah, in a statement issued by the Colonists’ Union.

The Union declares that the workers broke into the office of the agricultural committee of the colony, broke the doors and windows, tore up documents and did other damage. It calls on the Zionist Executive in Jerusalem to take measures to put an end to such occurrences.
