Police Ban Revisionist Meeting in Tel Aviv

Download PDF for this date

The British police today prohibited a protest meeting under the auspices of the Zionist Revisionists scheduled to be held at the Beth Am because the sponsors refused to deposit $250 in addition to a written guarantee of personal responsibility for any possible disturbances. The meeting, which had drawn a crowd of several thousand, was to protest against the new British policy in Palestine.

A detachment of armed British constables stood ready to aid the local police force in dealing with the crowd in case it refused to disperse.

The sponsors of the meetings are waiting with considerable curiosity to see if the police will demand a similar guarantee in connection with a meeting on Tuesday in Haifa under the auspices of the Moslem Society. The purpose of the meeting in Haifa is to “enlighten the public on the political and economic situation”.
