      Closing of Haifa's Phoenicia Glass Protested


      About 150 employees have scheduled a demonstration, Tuesday, at the Vulcan Junction in the Krayot suburbs, north of Haifa, to protest the proposed closing of the nearby Phoenicia Glass factory.

      The workers said, in a statement, "We are demonstrating today, in front of the place where the factory was erected 78 years ago, before the state was founded. We are here for the generations who built the plant and so that the next generation will say "no" to the closing of Phoenicia."
