SYL

:

Iranian minorities have few rights
mom, ANNE&.

By NICK KATARELAS
A national leader of the Spartacus
Youth League (SYL) last night called
on the working class in Iran to "lead the
struggle against the oppressive
regime" of the Ayatollah Khomeini.
Mary Jo McAllister, a SYL national
committee member, spoke at the
Michigan Union to a group of 40, con-
sisting mostly of SYL members. She
said the Iranian people were decieved
by the religious leader, who she said
then mobilized his forces to oppress
workers, women, and national
minorities.
"KHOMEINI'S revolution was
proclaimed the greatest revolution in
the century," she said. "Then he
proceeded to reinstate the veil and
mercilessly crush the national
minorities."
She stated the new government im-
mediately began their "oppressive"
measures - against the people.. A
stringent penal code was enacted, she
said. One of the examples McAllister
mentioned was the 2-10 year sentence
for striking. "This was followed quickly
by a law that muzzled the press," she
said.

Women have also been a main object
of oppression, according to the SYL
leader. She offered as an example not
only the atoning of unveiled women, but
the religious laws which allow for the
execution of women if they are accused
of adultery, while the male usually
receives a much more lax punishment,
if one is imposed at all. "They are chat-
tel. They are property. They are
slaves," she stated.
She compared the situation in Iran to
that of pre-revolutionary Russia,
calling them both '"prisonhouse of
nations," where many national
minorities are suppressed.
"The genocidal war against the Kur-
ds brought things to a head," she
stated. The Kurds are a religious sect
which opposes the present government
in Iran. McAllister called them "a very
valient and long struggling national
minority."
"The national minorities are in a
pivotal position," she said. "It is clear
they will continue to wage their
struggle against the central regime. It
is the working class of Iran that must
lead the fight against national op-
pression," she added.

SOVIET TROOPS:
Utah's Hatch recommends Cuban blockade

WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Oren
Hatch (R-Utah), said yesterday the
Soviet brigade in Cuba has been
training insurgents from all over Latin

America and proposed an "immediate
and total blockade of Cuba" until the
force is removed.
Hatch also proposed that the United

States support independence
movements in communist states in
Eastern Europe and elsewhere and
give active support - without direct
military involvement - to any

Ex-African dictator
flees to Ivory Coast

BANGUI, Central African Republic
(Reuter)-The deposed dictator of
Central Africa, Emperor Jean Bedel
Bokassa, flew yesterday from France
to excile in the Ivory Coast amid con-
fusion over his status in his own coun-
try.
The new Central African President
David Dacko denied earlier radio
reports that he had condemned the ex-
emperor to deathin absentia.
But President Dacko, 49, at a press
conference last night, said he was
calling on the Ivory Coast to extradite
Bokassa to be tried for crimes against
the Central African nation.
THE NEW president also said he was
ready to establish relations with South
Africa. He said that Emperor Bokassa
had forged private links with the South
Africans and that he intended to make
them official, whatever other African
countries said.
He said that if it was the best placed
country to develop Central Africa's
natural resources, diamond and
uraniumi therewas no reason why he
should not call 6nthem.
,Asked when such relations would be
established, he reolied: "I lust await
the appointment of a foreign minister."

The president also said that if French
troops were needed to maintain order:
"I Am prepared to keep them here for
10 years."
There are now 1,000 French troops in
the republic, which President Dacko
took over on Thursday in a French-
backed coup that ended Bokassa's 14
years of rule.
At the news conference, the new
president also said he thought it would
be good to have relations with Israel,
but that had to be done in close con-
sultation with other independent
African countries.
Meanwhile, ex-Emperor Bokassa
arrived in Abidjan after spending two
days on a French airstrip while France,
refusing him entry, cast around for an
area willing to accept him.
(In Abidjan, an official communique
published yesterday said the decision to
grant the ex-emperor asylum was ".. .
an act of Christian charity which our
country cannot refuse to do, in par-
ticular after the anguished pleas of
former Empress Catherine asking for
our pity. -
("We ought not to judge our unfortun-
ate guest's actions. God will," the com-
munique said.)

in his call for a Cuban

movement opposing "Soviet neo-
colonialism."
HE TOLD a news conference that

sources - which he said have been ac-
curate in the past -'have told him that
the Russian brigade in Cuba is a special
unit composedl of so-called Soviet "in-
ternal troops."
He described these as
troubleshooters and said they are "well
trained, extensively drilled,, extremely
mobile, and exceptionally well equip-
ped."
"They are training insurgents from
all over Latin America," Hatch said.
Hatch refused to identify the sources of
his information.
He did not identify by name or coun-
try of origin any of the insurgents he
said have been trained by the brigade.
Soviet news reports have said the
brigade is in Cuba on a training
mission. Discussions on the status of
the unit have been under way for the
past three weeks between Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance and Soviet Am-
bassador Anatoly Dobrynin.

she sets out on a iournev across America, desperate to main-
tain her custody of her son. Highlights include Dietrich singing
"Hot Voodoo" in an ape suit, and a luminous bordello se-
quence that surpasses anything Sternberg ever shot. (97 min)
