July 1, 1929
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Dissatisfied with the decision to turn the colonies in the Kalinindorf region into collectives is being expressed by the Jewish colonists in the district, the “Emes,” Communist Yiddish daily, states.

“The collectives are forced upon us. Let us live in peace,” was the statement of an organized group of Jewish peasants in the region, the “Emes” declares. Similar statements were expressed at meetings of the Jewish colonists of Lvovo, Cherson District. “We don’t want your favors. What do you want of us? Why drag us into the collectives?”

Reports to the same effect have come in from the colonies, Freileben and Dobroye, Kalinindorf District.

In the meantime, the decision to convert the colonies in the entire Kalinindorf District into collectives is being carried out. The number of Jewish collectives has now reached 347, ### as compared with 86 last year.
