Soviet Refuseniks Fast
For Human Rights

New York (JTA) — More
than 100 refuseniks were
scheduled to participate.in a
day of fasting throughout the
Soviet Union last week as a
gesture of solidarity with
Jewish Prisoners of Con-
science, according to the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry (NCSJ). Supporters in
other countries were expected
to fast along with them.
The refuseniks have formed
what they call The Associa-
tion of Israeli Citizens Who
Are Living in the USSR 'Ibm-
porarily Against Their Will.
The refuseniks intend to send
letters to Soviet authorities
demanding the POCs' release.
The informal network be-
gan two years ago in Lenin-
grad with a handful of
members who expressed the
desire to be repatriated to
their homeland, Israel. They
all claim Israeli citizenship.
The group reportedly in-
cludes a large number of
refuseniks. Among those par-
ticipating in the fast are Irma
Begun, wife of POC Iosif
Begun, and their son Boris.
Iosif Begun, was a Moscow
Hebrew teacher and Jewish

activist who first applied to
emigrate to Israel in April
1971. He is currently serving
a 12year term in Chistopol
Prison for "anti-Soviet agita-
tion" that consists of seven
years' imprisonment and five
years' internal exile.
On Erev Chanukah last

week, 32 Soviet Jewish ac-
tivists in Moscow sent greet-
ings to Israeli Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir and Israeli
President Chaim Herzog,
equating the fight of the Mac-
cabees with the Soviet Jews'
fight for religious freedom.
According to copies of the
messages, sent to the Michigan
Friends of the Soviet Jewry
Federation and Information
Center, 130 persons in the
Soviet Union took part in a
one-day hunger strike on Dec.
24 to dramatize the plight of
Soviet Jewish refuseniks.
Seventy persons gathered in
one Moscow apartment to hear
presentations on the history of
the Soviet Jewry movement.
Two employees of the U.S. Em-
bassy in Moscow were also pre-
sent, and telegrams were sent
to Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev demanding the release
of Prisoners of Zion.
