Argentine Zionist Laborites Hold First Convention

September 13, 1933
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The first convention of the Argentine League for Working Palestine closed here yesterday. The convention was addressed by the Argentine Socialists, Congressman Dickmann, Senators Bravo and Palacios and the representatives of the Palestinian Labor Fund, I. Razili.

The convention resolved to invite Argentine Jewish colonists to visit Palestine as a manifestation of unity with the Palestinian workers.

The League has twenty-five sections all over Argentina with a membership of 1,200. More than half of the sections were formed recently through the efforts of Mr. Razili.

A number of the sections of the League are in the colonies, and the membership is composed in the main of the second and third generations of the local immigrant group. The elder colonists are sympathetic to Labor Palestine and take great pride in the nationalist activities of their children.

Each year the colonists allocate certain stretches of land for sowing for national purposes. This year the Palestine Labor Fund was included and 118 acres were assigned to the Fund.
