Call for strike to protest antisemitism
Call from the cultural division of the Professional Union (Odezwa do robtotników żydowskich) in Vilna to Jewish workers to strike for half a day to protest the rising antisemitism in Poland, whose manifestations include "violence, boycotts, the extermination of work and trade, and lack of rights for [Yiddish] and [Jewish] culture." The protest is also against "Jewish nationalist and clerical reactionism"; against fascism and capitalism; and for "a workers' and peasants' government and for socialism." Bosses are warned against "besmirching the mighty protest of the Jewish working classes in Poland with strike-breaking."
