Kunstler on Attica and
ustice, American style
EDITOR'S NOTE: On Oct. 21, while attorney
William Kunstler was on his way to Iowa for a
speaking engagement, he spent a two-hour stop-
over at Chicago's 'O'Hare Airport in a personal in-
terview with Daily reporter John Mitchell. Excerpts
from the taped interview appear on today's Editor-
ial Page. The following is Mitchell's report.
For almost a decade, attorney William
Kunstler has championed controversial causes
:^ in the courtroom. From obscure civil rights
cases to sensational "political" trials, his con-
sistent and often inflammatory opposition to
the "establishment" has branded him a radical.
Kunstler most recently came into the public
spotlight when he refused to identify a man in
New York who authorities claim is H. Rap
Brown-a fugitive wanted by the FBI for alleg-
edly inciting a riot in Cambridge, Md. last year.
But although the man alleged to be Brown
has been a topic of public discussion, Kunstler
preferred not to dwell at length on the subject.
Instead, he devoted most of his time to dis-
cussing the uprising in the New York State
Correctional Facility at Attica, an event which
has since been added to the roll call of modern
American tragedies.
It had been over a month since Kunstler
served as the attorney for the prison's 1,500
rebel inmates, trying to forestall what was to
be the bloodiest finale to a prison uprising in
the nation's history, but the events that occur-
red during the tragedy still appeared to pre-
occupy him.
Concerning Attica, Kunstler said that it
was "outright murder" for New York state
authorities to send troopers into the correc-
tional facility. From his viewpoint inside the
prison, Kunstler said, "the tension of the guards
and state troopers was growing and growing.
We knew that they were going to murder
He also asserts that authorities deliberately
lied when they told the press that hostages'
throats had been cut. Authorities themselves
planned "to cut the throats of dead guards in
order to justify the onslaught of troopers," he

BOSTON (R)-A US. Court of

A police informer has accused the Los
Angeles police department of complicity in
a number of highly-.publicized acts of vio-
lence involving radicals.
Louis Tackwood said last week that police
had advance information on the Marin
County shoot-out for which Angela Davis is
being tried, and George Jackson's attempt-
ed escape from San Quentin prison, but

claimed that police were seeking Tack-
wood to "shut him up." The committee pro-
vided a forum for Tackwood, and arranged
for substantiation of his story by the press.
The Los Angeles Police Department
(LAPD) denied that it is searching for
Tackwood. A spokesman said that no war-
rant has been issued for Tackwood's arrest,
and that he is not on the fugitive list.
Tackwood's location is presently unknown.

Effects of British Market entry
on U.S. unsure, experts believe
From Wire Service Reports
Britain's historic vote to join the European Common Market
opened a major political rift there yesterday, while experts in the
United States were uncertain about the implications of the move
for Americans.
With its vote Thursday night, the House of Commons accepted
the principle of Common Market membership on terms negotiated
by Prime Minister Edward Heath's tConservative government.
But a year-long battle remains to push the enabling legisla-
tion through Parliament, aligning British laws with the rules of
the European Economic Community before Britain can actually join
on the target date of Jan. 1, 1973. All signs point to cliff hangers on
the more controversial terms of entry.
