Police fire on black job
boycotters in S. Africa
Alleged Kennedy conspirators
plead innocent to charges
By AP and Reuter
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Thous-
ands of black workers boycotted their jobs
yesterday and police fired birdshot and tear
gas at demonstrators in the black township
of Soweto. Police also launched a house-to-
house' sweep of another black township, ar-
resting many persons.
The latest action to protest South Africa's
race policies come as talks between Prime
Minister John Vorster and Rhodesian Prime
Minister Ian Smith on the worsening racial
clashes in both countries were set to begin
in Prteoria :today. Also, U. S. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger is due in the South
African capital Friday for another round of
talks with Vorster.
NO INJURIES were reported' in the So-
weto clash, which police said came after
several buses were burned.
However, three black youths were shot
and wounded by a white motorist near Cape
Town. The youths were reportedly throwing
stones at cars. Seven nonwhites were killed
by white civilians in separate incidents over
the weekend, police said.
The work boycott is a repeat of a three-
day boycott last month organized in Soweto.
The huge black township is the source of
much of nearby Johannesburg's labor sup-
THE LAST BOYCOTT ended in bloody
street fighting. Zulus and other migrant
workers who wanted to continue working
battled permanent Soweto residents. Thirty-
five persons were killed, some by police try-
ing to control the rioting.
This time, the militant Soweto Students
Representative Council (SSRC) and other
strike organizers appealed for a nonviolent
three-day work stoppage.
The students urged workers to stay at
home for three days in protest at the al-
leged killing of. chrdilen by police, detention
without trial and the stopping of wages of
blacks who went on strike previously.
PAMPHLETS DISTRIBUTED over the
weekend by the SSRC said: "Parents: coop-
erate with us. Workers: stay away from
work. Hostels: do not fight.
"This will be proof you are crying with
us over those cruelly killed by police and
those detained all over the country in vari-
ous prisons without trial."
A messenger from Soweto, who travelled
to his office by taxi, said: "We have been
told that if we go to work we had better
go home by airplane because there will
be trouble waiting for us at the railway sta-
tions and bus stops."
THE BUS company which runs internal
services in Johannesburg said only 13 of its
132 black drivers and conductors had report-
ed for work. A spokesperson said skeleton
Some Johannesburg businesses reported.80
per cent absenteeism among employesnbe-
cause of the boycott, while other said most
workers showed up. Communter buses and
trains running from Soweto into Johannes-
burg were reported almost 90 per cent em-
Hardest hit were clothing manufacturers,
department stores and supermarkets which
reported an absentee rate of up to 75 per cent
among black employees.
