See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A demonstration against Jewish land purchases in Palestine will be arranged in Jaffa on June 8 under the auspices of an Arab Youth organization, it was announced in the Arab press.

The demonstration is to be directed against Arab brokers who are instrumental in aiding Jews to purchase land from Arab owners. It will demand that the government promulgate an ordinance similar to the Egyptian “five Feddans Law,” according to which a minimum of land must remain with the fellahen.
