The World

At least five Solidarity activists were detained by police in two Polish cities on the eve of the sixth anniversary of the founding of the now-outlawed free trade union, opposition sources reported. Jozef Pinior, a Solidarity leader in the southwestern city of Wroclaw, was taken by police from his apartment, according to his wife, Maria. Four other Solidarity activists were taken from their jobs by police in the southern city of Bielsko-Biala, a Warsaw opposition source said. There was speculation that the five would be held long enough to keep them from taking part in Solidarity observances planned for today.
