Iron Guard Again Demonstrating in Roumanian Streets in Uniform

Download PDF for this date

The Iron Guard antisemitic terrorist organisation, which was suppressed by the Jorga Government after the anti-Jewish disturbances in Jassy and in Tutova, where Professor Codreanu, the father of the Iron Guard leader, Zelea Codreanu, was elected to Parliament as an Iron Guard candidate, is again making public appearances.

Even while it was officially suppressed the organisation was conducting secret activity, but now it has thrown off all attempt at concealment and come out boldly into the open.

During the celebrations this week of the second anniversary of King Carol’s return to Roumania, uniformed detachments of the Iron Guard marched in procession through the streets of Bucharest, carrying banners and singing the Iron Guard anthem. No attempt was made by the authorities to disperse the procession as that of an illegal organisation.
