GROWTH OF J.O.C. IN BELGIUM AND FRANCE Its Influence in Factory, Workshop, Dock and Hangar

WORKING-CLASS AND ANTI-COMMUNIST

From a Special Correspondent

Early in June there occurred an event which was not recorded in the press, but which deserves the attention of all who are concerned for the future, whether as Catholics or as sociologists. Bands of young working men marched to the International Labour Office at Geneva carrying a petition signed by nearly 100,000 unemployed in France, Belgium, Holland and Czechoslovakia as well as Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Canada.

There were other groups in Geneva representing a variety of organisations, for the subject chosen for discussion by the I.L.O. was " Unemployment Among Young People," but this delegation was super-national. The signatories were all Catholics and all unemployed, they were all under twenty-five, and all affiliated to an organisation of a very definite spiritual inspiration—the Jeunesse Ouvriere Catholique.
