THREE RESOLUTIONS Three resolutions were prssented to Shidehara fay the group. One from farmers condemned the amount of rice provided under the coaipuiisOi v An- other from labor unions opoosed the announced government plans for drafting legislation to prohibit labor unions from assigning control of industries during strikes: the third was an eight-point demand for the cabinet resignation because of "its inability to solve the country's problems."
