The World : ‘Go Fishing,’ Walesa Told

Poland’s ruling Communist Party suggested that Solidarity leader Lech Walesa “go fishing” on May Day rather than attempt to participate in demonstrations planned on the workers’ holiday by supporters of the banned trade union Solidarity. The official press urged workers to ignore appeals by the Solidarity underground for the protests, against price rises and political arrests. Walesa has said he will try to infiltrate the official May Day parade in the Baltic port of Gdansk where he lives, but he made no personal appeal for demonstrations.
