Joint Arab-Jewish Workers' Parade on May 1st in the all-Arab town of Nazareth. The parade was organised by Mapai, the Israel Labour Party headed by Premier Ben Gurion, jointly with Mapam, the more radical Socialist party. Participants were Arab members and adherents of these two parties in Nazareth and Jewish workers from Mapai and Mapam agricultural settlements in the neighbourhood of Nazareth. As Nazareth also has a strong Arab Communist element, and disturbances were feared, the parade was attended by numerous policeman along the route.
