The LJCongress released
a statement expressing the
solidarity of South Ameri-
can Jewry with Israel and
the principles of Zionism. It
observed that the countries
which voted for the resolu-
tion included many which
did little to combat racism
or advance human rights
within their own borders.
Argentina abstained in the
UN vote.
The U.S. Committee for
UNICEF (United Nations
Childrens Fund) issued a
statement deploring the
Nov. 10 resolution on Zion-
ism, and at the same time
asking for continued sup-
port for UNICEF.
The group said, "Israel
and UNICEF have had a
long, positive and continu-
ing association. On Nov. 6,
1975 Israel again pledged its
financial support for 'the
very positive and fruitful ac-
tivities of UNICEF.' "

The executive director of
UNICEF, Henry R. La-
bouisse, also issued a
statement saying that
UNICEF would continue
to work for "children of
the developing world in a
strictly non-partisan
spirit," and hoped that the
recent UN vote would not
adversely affect contribu-
tions to UNICEF and its
work.

Protest rallies drawing
thousands of people were
held in Los Angeles, Minne-
apolis-St. Paul, Cleveland
and Albany, N.Y.

Tours Cancelled

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations announced
that it has cancelled 30
scheduled trips to Mexico
and five to Turkey as part of
its protest against the two
countries for having voted
for the anti-Zionist resolu-
tion.
In Washington, David M.
Blumberg, president of Bnai
Brith, said his organization,
which conducts an extensive
group-tour program, has
cancelled scheduled tours to
Mexico and Brazil for the
same reason and is review-
ing its travel program to
consider similar actions
against countries "whose
governments refused to take
a stand against political
anti-Semitism." Jamaica
and Greece, which ab-
stained in the Assembly
vote, have been prominent
on Bnai Brith tour sched-
ules.
