  • Description

    The central demonstration by Israel's workers in protest against the government NEP (new economic programme) took place in Jerusalem this morning whilst the cabinet was sitting for its weekly cabinet session. Workers' demos have been the order of the day in various parts of Israel ever since the cabinet on September 30th announced the floating of the Israel Pound. This led to a 45% devaluation of Israel's currency and together with a slashing of subsidies of basic goods, such as bread, milk etc. and a rise of 25% for fuels to a jump in prices of all goods, imported an locally produced. - Even though a meeting is planned between the Min. of finance, Mr. Simha Ehrlich and the head of the Histadruth (Labour Federation), Mr. Y. Meshel, daily protests by workers are the order of the day. Today's demonstration included govt. employees and industrial workers of Jerusalem and surroundings as well as workers form many parts of the country and was planed to be the major such event.
