Politburo attack SoSolidarity

From AP and UPI
WARSAW, Poland - The ruling
Communist Party Politburo, in its
strongestattack yet on Solidarity, war-
ned yesterday of a possiblility of blood-
shed and declared it would use all
means necessary to prevent the in-
dependent union from taking political
power in Poland.
A statement issued by the 15-member
ruling Politburo said Solidarity had
fallen under the influence of "Western
sabotage," becoming a subversive
political force that had brought
economic ruin to Poland.
THE PARTY SAID Solidarity, at its
first national congress last week, had
embarked on a course of "building an

'The

situation

has

become

dangerous, and the counter-
revolutionary threat is growing.'
--Politburo statement

opposition political organization which
openly set itself the goal of changing the
poltical system of Poland.".
The congress called for free elec-
tions, a national referendum on
workers' reforms and sent a message of
support to free trade union organizers
elsewhere in the East bloc.

Feel Isolated?

The message of support brought a
furious response from the Soviet Union
and other East bloc news media, which
have repeatedly criticized the Polish
government and the country's year-
long series of labor and social reforms.
THE POLITBURO accused the entire
union of abandoning workers' interests
and embracing those of "oppositional
and counter-revolutionary groups,
such as KOR, the dissident Committee
for Social Self- ~efense and the anti-
Communist C6nfederation of Indepen-
dent Poland.
The statement accused Solidarity of
breaking agreements under which the
union was organized and turning
toward "a program of political op-
position which hits at the vital interests
of the Polish nation, and is tantamount
to a direction towards confrontation
threatening bloodshed."

Solidarity was also charged with
adoptingf "a course toward a new
national tragedy,"by the statement,
read by a television announcer after the
evening news program.
"THE STATE will use for its defense
such means as required by the
situation," according to the statement.
1"The situation has become dangerous,
and the counter-revolutionary threat is
growing."
The statement, came hours after
dissident leader Jacek Kuron said the
Communist Party was "paralyzed"
and called on it to share power with the
Roman Catholic Church and Solidarity
in a committee until democratic elec-
tion of a new government, according"to
the union newspaper.
HE SAID A "Council of National
Salvation" should be formed of union,
church and moderate government and
party officials to rubh the country.
"The moment the council is formed,
it would suspend operation of all
authorities, including the goverg
nment," he said.
KURON HAS long been targeted by
Moscow as head of they "anti-socialist"
forces charges are trying to manipulate
Solidarity. His commentary-published
as his personal opinion and not that of
the union itself-came as the Kremlin
stepped up its propaganda campaign
against the 10 million menber union.
Quoting Polish Communist officials,
theSoviet news agency Tass said "an
extremely acute and tough political
struggle of an anti-socialist and anti-
Communist nature is being wage
behind the backs of the working
people" in Poland.
