  • Description

    At the Arab League Office in Paris on Tuesday (10 Oct.) Arab students began a hunger strike to protest action taken by the West German government against Palestinian workers and students.

    The Bonn government clamped down on entry, movement and exit of Arabs living in West Germany after the murder of II Israeli Olympians in Munich early last month.

    Some Arab governments have protested against the German action.

    A spokesman for the students in Paris said the aim of the hunger strike was to draw public attention to the severs measures of repression--as he called them--taken in Germany.

    He said the measured had been dictated by Zionist pressure from Tel Aviv, which had blackmailed Germany since the end of the second world war.

    SYNOPSIS: The Arab League headquarters in Paris... scene of the latest protest at measures taken by the West German government against Palestinian workers and students.

    These students are on a hunger strike in protest against the actions of the Bonn government.

    A student spokesman said the aim of the hunger strike was to draw world attention to what he described as the severe measures of repression taken by Bonn. The spokesman said all the evidence indicated these arbitrary measures were dictated by Zionist pressure from Tel Aviv, which had blackmailed Germany since the end of world war two. He said that anti-Jewish feeling had turned into anti-Arab feeling in West Germany. The spokesman said it was hoped the hunger strike would also pressure Arab governments into boycotting German interests in the Arab world. Since the murder of eleven Israeli Olympians in Munich last month, the West German government has been controlling the activities of resident Arab workers and students.
