The protest meetings which have been called jointly by the Workmen’s Circle and the Jewish Labor Committee will mark a “Day of Protest and Mourning” proclaimed by the national executive committee of the Workmen’s Circle in the name of its 75,000 members in the United States. Similar protest demonstrations will take place tomorrow throughout the country.
