The Council was based at 100c Queen Victoria Street, City of London. It organised major demonstrations and distributed handbills protesting against Nazi persecution in Germany, particularly of Jewish people. In 1935 the Council's major resolution was to promote an economic boycott on German business 'until complete civil and religious liberty have been restored in Germany'.
According to The Times of Monday, Oct 28, 1935, page 16, the demonstration in Hyde Park in October 1935 attracted over 20,000 people. The event had 6 platforms at Speaker's Corner with a number of key political and religious speakers including Eleanor Florence Rathbone, campaigning suffragette and politician.
