Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 1HE IETHBRIDGE HKAID Ihunday, 21, 1972 Three fig trees stymie financial wizards SYDNEY, Australia (AP) The cose ot tho three fig trees and other environmental causes have shelved 5720 million in pro- jects here. The battle is led by a union oflicial, Jack Mundey, a former professional in Rugby football and an activist in Australia's Communist party. Opponents call him "Bloody Mundey." As secretary of a 10.500-m em- ber branch of the Builders' La- borers Federation, Mundey uses Here are the ANSWERS for your NEWS QUIZ PART 1: 2-c; 3 -Progrssiive Conservative; 4-a; 5-b PART II: 1-d; 2-a; 3-e; 4-b; S-c PART 1-a; 2-e; 3-d; 4-c; 5-b PICTURE QUIZ: Thn Canada Cup the weapon of work bans and strike threats. "Unions can no longer restrict interest in their members to the number of hours they work or the amount in their pay pack- says Mundey. "We're not just interested in Hie 40-liour working week, or the 35-hour week. It's the 168 hours of every week which concern us. The full canvas must be examined." It all started a year ago when a group of residents in suburban Hunters Hill got involved in a fight over a 12-acre area called Kellys Bush. "A developer wanted to build some luxury homes on part of it resident opposed lie says. THREATENED STRIKE "The women came to us for help, pointed out it was one of the last bits of land in its origi- nal slate around that area, and we decided 10 help. "We told the company that the moment one jaekpick or bulldozer moved ontu the site, builders' laborer on its other developments would walk out." The union took on the state government as well as develo- pers in its next fight, against a S600-million plan for Sydney's Rocks area. "A group of archilecls and planners approaclied us and said there were loo many high- rise buildings and too little pres- ervation of historical buildings in Ihe Mundey says. In addition, residents complained about not being adequately re- housed-. A state proposal to convert two city parks into a sporls development drew a thumbs-down from the union.

Yugoslavia fights rebels internally and externally By NEAT, ASCHERSON Observer At dawn one day last iveek, :he Australian police descended on houses in Melbourne, Sydney and Geelong. Armed with search warrants, they were hunting for evidence of terrorist activity by Croat nationalists. The suburbs of Melbourne are at the other end of the earth from the lonely Bosnian moun- tains in Yugoslavia. And yet, extraordinary as it serins, it is from Australia that Croatian ter- rorists have been setting out on armed expeditions which take them into Yugoslavia. Out of ID Croats killed by the Yugoslav security forces recently, in bat- tles in the hills, 10 had come from Australia. Five were Aus- tralian citizens, and one had served in the Commonwealth's armed forces. Australia is not the only cen- tre for these emigre groups, dedicated to "liberating" Croa- tia from Communism and above all from "Great-Serb domina- tion." Powerful underground networks also operate from West Germany, Austria and Sweden. But the very remote- ness of Australia and the poli- tical innoncence of the authori- ties allows the Croats to organ- ize there undisturbed. So does the size of the Yugo- slav community. In recent years, the number of Yugoslavs enter- ing Australia has swelled from in 1961 to in 1970, making them Ihe largest immi- grating group with the excep- tion of the British. There are now some Yugoslavs liv ing in Australia, of whom over half are estimated to be Croats. STIUKE Now the Yugoslav govern- ment has at last persuaded the Australian authorities to strike at groups like the "Croatian Lib- eration Front." Previously, the official attitude had been thai these were anti-Communist ant therefore worthy organizations but the waves of bombings against Yugoslav offices in Aus- tralia and the stark evidence of the dead men in Bosnia have at last persuaded them to take a tougher line. No other country In Europe with the exception of Northern Ireland and the Basque prov inces of Spain, faces the prob lem of armed guerrilla bands crossing its frontiers with the object of overthrowing the Gov ernment. Behind the guerrilla lies the bloody history of Croa Lian nationalist extremism anc the Ustasha movement, whicl formed a fascist puppet Gov ernment in Croatia under th Nazis and massacred almost million Serbs and Jews. The level of terrorism has been steadily rising. Bombings and assassinations, carried ou against Yugoslav represent a tives abroad, have been goin on for decades. The attack have escalated in the past yea with the murder of the Yugc slav Ambassador in Stockholi and the blowing-up of a Yug slav airliner over Czechosloval 1 ia. They moved into a ne 1 phase earlier this year, wi e news that armed bands ere trying to establish firm ases within the frontiers of ugoslavia. The Bosnian raids, which ave deeply alarmed Yugosla- a, can only have a bad effect the trials of Croat dissi- enfs now on in Zagreb. 1371, the leadership of the eague of Communists in Croa- tcok" a highly independent nd nationalist line, which was rushed in December as Presi- cnt Tito decided that the party as encouraging anti-Commu- st nationalist forces which ight wreck the unity of Yugo- avia. Since then, there have been 30 convictions of Croats for ieir activities last year. Many them have done little more tan show enthusiasm for great- r Croatian independence. Some, Ttainly, had sinister contacts ith Ustasha veterans abroad, t present, the centre of atten- on is the trial in Zagreb of four .udont leaders, Cicak, Parad- ik, Budisa and.Dodig, accused f nationalist subversion. The tur were among those who ained control of the Zagreb organization last year nd allegedly organized a poli- strike. The prosecutor has even charged them with intend- ng to overthrow the Govern- nent by armed force. The Zagreb trial is a curious mixture of old and new methods. Some of the evidence recalls he lifeless concoctions of show .rials, while the official news agency can report blithely that a day's evidence "shows un- equivocally that (the accused) put into action a nationalist- chauvinist program for the purpose of destroying the exist- ing order." In contrast, the court is open to the foreign Press and the judge has been taking pains to fair, interrupting the more irrelevant prosecution w i t- nesses, allowing the and their lawyers wide freedom of speech and questioning and noting the protests of the accused against the prejudiced report- ing of the trial.
