Description Information
   Single sheet of paper, 4°, 264:157mm., light age staining, some creasing.
   A call for all "khaverim" to come to a meeting on the Tuesday the 18th of October called by the Ad Hoc Committee of the Capetown Workers' Club.

Jewish workers' solidarity in Cape Town goes as far back as 1898, when they established a workers' club, and their unionist activities go as far back as 1902 and 1903, when they were operating a tailors' society, a baker's association, a carpenters' society and a cooperative bakery. Bundist ideology had a strong impact on Cape Town Jewish workers up to a certain period. As historical circumstances called for new forms of struggles, Cape Town Bundists were absorbed into the existing revolutionary groups in town.
