IIIIII koek , oo: POLISH .fl£ Edwin Feulncr STILL ITS WINGS :h :l.& ~e IST )urt k t'r rrs , it!d 11 ty. t,~; | ' Despite the declared end of martial law in Poland, life for the average Pole will remain essentially unchanged. • ' Military rule has simply been replaced with a series of "temporary" regulations that are equally harsh and more lilcely to become permanent. Although General Wojciech Jaruzelski's regime might boast otherwise, the regulations confirm the underlying fear of Polish officials that the popular discontent that resulted in the formation of the now-banned Solidarity trade union, KOR and other dissident groups is yet to be contained. ,~-This fear is further demonstrated by the selective amnesty enacted by Jaruzelski's puppet Parliament. The move is clearly designed to appease Western nations, especially the United States, into lilting economic sanctions, while releasing only the most minor political offenders. Dozens of the c~fficially reported 550 political prisoners now in Polish jail cells will not be freed. These include a number of former Solidarity leaders and KOR dissidents charged with conspiracy against the state. The "show trials." as they are being called in the West, must go On• Those outside continue to remain active, however• 'Although such underground leaders as Zbignii:w Bujak "might benefit from the amnesty, he advised his colleagues ito stay in hiding until a full amnesty is granted• He also encouraged a continued boycott of the "unions" approved by the government to replace Solidarity. According to Leopold Labedz, a Polish emigre living in London and editor of a special two-volume report, "Poland Under Jaruzelski," appearing in SURVEY, the influential and informative British journal of East-West studies, the hopes of dissidents have not been crushed, nor has their movement. "Since September 1939," he writes, "when the Polish state was invaded from West and East by the allied armies Of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, the Polish eagle has not ceased beating its wings against the bars of its cage. "The cage is seriously damaged," he says, but "the struggle continues despite countless arrests, persecution and repression." .. It would be an unfortunate mistake to read the wrong things into General Jaruzelski's latest gambit. Martial law has been replaced with a bureaucratic substitute. Women and children jailed during the political unrest are being set free; but the show trials are slated to take place as scheduled• General Jaruzelski is undoubtedly in firm ,,command. Solidarity has been put in its place• And the pope has come and gone without incident• Still, events have been set in motion in Poland that are' beyond Jaruzelski's ability to control• The Polish people came within an inch of breaking the Communist yoke; it is a feeling they will ~ot soon forget. The Polish eagle will continue to beat its wings against the bars of its cage until it finds the freedom that dwells within its heart.
