Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HfRAlD Monday, Jepfeinlifl 10, 1971 New breed of convict on the scene WASHINGTON (flouter) The "Bloody Monday" slaugh- ter nt New York stale's AlLica prism has turned the flare of the penitentiary searchlight on a new breed of convict an angry, articulate black who Bees himself as a political pris- oner in a white man's world. The new "political prisoner" is the product of an ago that has seen Uie battle for black civil rights move from the passive resistance of Dr. Martin Luther King, through "Black Power" confrontations to armed clashes between Black Panthers and police. Germany, Russia push for talks MOSCOW (AP) West Ger- many and the Soviet Ur.'ua agreed today to speed up prepa rations for an East-West confer- ence on European security. They made the announcement In a communique issued after two days of talks at Oreanda on the Black Sea between West German Chancellor Willy Brandt and General Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev of the Soviet Communist party. The communique said the countries would hold consults, tions soon with each cthrr. with their allies and with other Euro- pean states "in order to acceler- ate the holding" of an East- West conference on European security. The communique said both Canada and the United States should attend. Tha Russians have long pushed for a European security conference, while the West has demanded progress on specific issues first, such as a Berlin settlement. In Ulis connection, the com- munique noted that the four- power agreement on Berlin signed Sept. 3 "is a major step along the road of easing Euro- pean and international ten- thereby paving the way lor the security conference. The communique said the two men also discussed mutual force reductions in Europe and the question of normalizing rela- tions between East and West Germanv.

WANT RHODESIA BARRED more consumer goods as rising Japanese income support a taste for more luxury items. The predominance of miner- get Rhodesia barred from next year's Olympic Games, Diallo Telli, OAU secretary-general, said Saturday. Raised In the city's black ghetto, he has wrested an edu- cation from slum schools and life's bitter experience. His reading has convinced him .soci- ety must be turned upside down to achieve any justice lor the block man. Men like thij are to h? found in prisons across Uie United States, officials say, and New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller has blamed the "revolutionary tactics of militants" for the At- tica uprising. The bowl bf brotherhood be- tween KUCJJ prisoners, the feel- ing that they have nothing to lose in a country where the whites are supreme, make them a particularly dangerous fac- tion, observers say. Few of the millions who saw the Attica confrontation on tele- vision will forget a convict lead- er's coldly angry words: "If we cannot live like human beings, let us at least try to die like men" and the roar of appro- val that followed. Tlie words marked the end of five days of negotiations lor the release of 37 hostages held by the convicts and sealed (lie fate of 40 men apparently caught in a withering crossfire as state troopers and other forces stormed Hie prison be h i n d a choking cloud of teargas. The convicts' last demand for amnesty end transportation to a "non imperialist" country was in the classic tradition of political prisoners. Nearly all of the Attica con- vict leaders were black. BLACKS NUMEROUS Of the prison's convict popu- lation of more than more than half are non white. The guards, numbering fewer than 400, are nearly all white. Most prisons in the country hold a disproportionately large num- ber of blacks. The idea that blacks are pris- oners in a white man's world was espoused by the assassi- nated Black Muslim leader Malcolm X. The view now is widely held among black con- victs. One black former prisoner who served 10 years in Califor- nia's notorious Soledad p r i s on for armed robbery and murder wrote this of Uie new type of convict in the Black Scholar magazine, a San Francisco journal: "No longer no black prisoners play the sychophants game of 'pleasing the powers.' They are IT tune with contemporary so- cial and political scenes in the free world; they take an inter- est in elevating th e i r percep- tion, have principles and are morally and ethically alive." Another prisoner awaiting ais second trial resulting f r o TC a Shootout between Black Pan- thers and police in Oakland, Calif., in 1900, wrote: "They (the black prisoners) do not feel guilty; indeed in their minds they are not guilty. Many are willing to move for freedom if the opportunity presents itself." CORRECTION NEEDED In the same magazine, the ed- itor, Prof. Robert Chrisman of San Francisco State College, wrote that black anti-social be havior has to be correcied. He called it romanticism to say that crimes, often against other black people, were politically correct. But he noted that black pris- oners are political prisoners in the sense that their condition derives from political inequity. "A black prisoner's crime may or may not have been a political action against the Chrisman wrote, "hut the state's action against him is always political." Black militancy and prison violence were closely linked in incidents long before Attica. In January last year three blacks who became known as the Soledad Brothers were ac- cused bf murder after a white guard at the prison had been found dead (hrec days after three black prisoners were shot in a disturbance. LETTERS PUBLISHED One of Uie accused was George Jickson, whose bitter letters from prison were later published under the title Stole, dad Brother. Last month, Jackson, 29, was shot and killed as IB allegedly tried to make a break from San Quentin penitentiary. TITO white cmvicts and three guards also died. Many writers have traced what they believe to be a com- mon tnread in the violence that killed the Soledad Brothers and the Attica convicts and guards and such incidents as the May, W70, Kent State University con- frontation in which four stu- dents were shot dead by Na- tional Guard troops. As long ago as 1967, H. Rap Brown, then chair man of thj Student Non-Violent Co-ordinat- ing Committee, declared: "Vio- lence is as American as cherry pie." Manitoba government criticized EDMONTON (CP) The New Democratic Party in Man- itoba is using "a highly soph- isticated form of divide and con- quer" to take over many thriv- ing industries in the province, the director of the Insurance Bureau of Canada said here. Harley Vannan of Winnipeg, also president of the Canadian Indemnity Co., made the accu- sation in a speech to the an- nual meeting of the Alberta As- sociation ot Insurance Adjust- ers. He said the NDP in Mani- toba, by implementing a gov- ernment run automobile in- surance program similar to one already in existence in Sas- katchewan, has set a precedent for the rest of Canada. "If an NDP government is elected in any province you may be sure that government automobile insurance will be in- boduced, regardless of wheth- er it is needed "0 t h e r governments must ask themselves if there are any benefits to the consumer in a government insurance plan. "Are they of the magnitude that makes it worthwhile to dis- rupt a healthy, home grown industry, throw hundreds of people out of work and cause a deep feeling of hate, distrust and lack of co-operation that Mill lake many years to Mr. Vannan said the Mani- toba government does not in- tend to stop at the insurance industry. "It has plans for the take- over of the drug business, it is interested in a group life in- surance plan, it has talked about a bank, it has extended the lending authority of a credit union, it is involved in various manufacturing plants Credit union operation? Iniay change CALGARY (CP) Provi-, sions in the government's tax reform bill are oppressive and will probably force credit un- ions to revamp operations, says Robert J. Ingram of Toronto, general manager of the Nation- al Association of Canad i a n Credit Unions. The association will advise unions to reorganize unless Ot- tawa's proposed bill permits one of two things, he said. It should permit credit un- ions lo deduct for tnx purposes dividends paid lo their mem- bers or allow the unions the same 33 l-3-per-cent tax credit on dividends received as is to be given corporation share- holders. If this isn't done, he said, the association will advise un- ions to limit members to one share each, on which dividends would still be paid and handle other savings on a deposil-with- interest basis..
