  • Description

    A number of Jews demonstrated in Paris on Wednesday (19 May) to protest against alleged political anti-semitism in the Soviet Union. During the demonstration in the French capital's Place de la Republique, a couple drove past in a cage placed on top of a car while others followed behind in chains.

    SYNOPSIS: Members of the Committee for the support of Soviet Jews demonstrated in Paris on Wednesday to protest against alleged political anti-semitism in the Soviet Union.

    Part of the demonstration in the French capital's Place de la Republique consisted of a couple in a cage followed by other demonstrators in chains. The demonstrators were referring in the protest to the nine Jews who are currently on trial in Leningrad for their alleged involvement in a plot to hijack a Soviet airliner last year.

    The demonstrators then marched the mile to the Jewish Memorial to continue their protest.

    Wednesday's demonstration was a part of a larger series of protests. The day before, some fifty protestors gathered to distribute leaflets at a theatre where a Soviet group was performing.
