Israeli war planes. after a lapse of five weeks. bombed the Syrian villages of Deiel and Seda yesterday. The Israeli war raids underscored Gus Hall's press confer- ence statement that "all world relations will sharpen if the war does not end." The renewing of the bombing makes it necessary to ask in each Congressional district: what has our Congress- man or Congresswoman done to cut short this monstrous killing? Today, and tomorrow, and each day until your repre- sentative returns to Washington are days for delegations to visit them at home. insisting that they act now against the slaughter. The next step is to make sure that your representative is not alone in Washington on January 3 and 4: that deter- mined delegations from the district are at his desk. all the time, insisting that he take every action necessary to end the war. The best assurance of action is for the trade unions. shop workers. rank and file unionists to be included in the delegations to Washington. Start a collection now in your shop to send one or more delegates to Washington for Jan. 3 and 4. It is one thing - and a very important act - for a un- ion's national officers to protest to Nixon and to insist that Congress act. It is another thing. and even more important. when the local unions, their officials or rank and file mem- bers. shop workers right off the job, put the power of the workers visibly behind the peace actions of the top union officials. And if the leaders don't act, it is doubly important for the rank and file to do so. That is the more necessary since George :Mleany. AFL-CIO president, and Jay Love- stone. the CIA's top agent in labor's ranks, and. some. other unworthies are on the side of the Mad Bomber as he orders the destruction of Vietnam. The most effective answer to the Mad Bomber and his servile tools in labor's ranks is for the workers to con- duct five-minute stoppages, so that the rank and file can send a message to Nixon demanding that he "Sign Now!" the 9-point peace agreement he okayed in October, and other messages to the House Speaker and the Senate pres- ident. demanding that the horror end.

His most recent book is Detroit: City of Race and Class Violence (Quad- rangle Books). pro- or anti-labor voting records, as Meany's relations with many politicians testify. Rather the explanation lies in Meany's character. To begin with, there is an ar- rogance in the man, visible at press conferences and in his conduct of the AFL-CIG conventions, which is rellected in this book by the disdain with which he views mere mortals. And they in- clude a Who's Who of American poli- tics.

Hence the bile of his remarks against Senator McGovern at the Steelworkers' convention. Now there was a greater hate than the big hate. Is George Meany that vengeful? In a footnote about his own research for this book, Gotilden writes revealingly, "The presidents of some large anions, supposedly fearless labor leaders, are frightened silly at offending Meany, and would talk about him only in general- ities, or off the record." When in. 1942 Franklin Roosevelt, with Sidney Hill- man's assistance, blocked a merger of the AFL and the CIO proposed by John L. Lewis, and which involved having George Mcany as president of the new organization, Meant' did not forgive and forget. In 1944 he voted for Dev,'cy. A note on his feelings toward Walter Reuther, and the atmosphere in the AFL-CIO headquarters, provides further insight. "Meany slowly became an iso- lated man-so scornful of critics that only rarely would anyone in his inner circles differ with him, upon pain of being denounced as a 'I?eutherite,' Nelson Cruikshank, who left the AFL- CIO to run a Medicare lobby financed by labor, was distressed at what he saw.

The SP played a similar ultr;1- .rightist role ' when the Middle East situation came up. This is evident even from the report on the conference by Paul Feldman, delegate of the SP in the July 30 issue of '"New America," paper of the SP. The U.S. delegates were' the most loud-mouthed backers of Golda Meir, who represented "so- cialist" Israel.

Psy- chological warfare, he'stressed, is' a sphere of government activity which must be dealt with / only by professionals acting in secret. An Anre- J rican professor, Ransom, who for a long time took part in the military research programme of Harvard University, holds that the role of the CIA in undertaking political and psychological subversive acts has increased so much. that it has become a major instrument of political war, an el has far exceeded the functions determined by the law.on jhe establishment of the ;UTA.2 Some bourgeois scholars call this process `.`politicising" the intelligence service.

A report "The American Ima Abroad", submitted to the American Senate T ii-, 1968 by the Republican Coordinating Gout- rilittec, stresses that the material being spread by non-governmen(al agencies is accepted in foreign countries with greater trust than that put out by the government. In view of this, the corn- mit'tee recommended the government to en- courage by every possible means the American organisations issuing information and ro- p paganda material for foreign countries. A vivid example of the kind of unofficial pro- paganda directed against the USSR and other socialist countries is the activity of Radio Free Europe, officially an independent organisation, but virtually controlled by the US authorities. Speaking in the US Senate in January 1971, Senator C. Case said that 1,642 employees of Free Europe and about 1,500 professional work- ers of the Liberty radio station were maintain- ed by the CIA. These subversive centres make use of 49 transmitters bought with CIA money. The American intelligence service expends an- nually over $30 million on these radio saboteurs. Hundreds of millions of dollars have travelled from the US state treasury to the accounts of Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty for over 20 years.

The Savedish authority, Gun- nar Nlyrdel, is quoted as roughly esti- mating that "directly or indirectly through joint enterprises or other ar- rangements, United States corporations not. control or. decisively influence be- tween 70 and 90 percent of the raw ma- terial resources of Latin America, and probably more than half of its modern manufacturing industry, banking, coin= coerce, and foreign trade, as well as much of its public utilities." That high percentage of big business involvement and control means there are innumer- able American families who will find disassociation from engagement in Latin America economically painful. Our imperialism is also extending its neo-colonial tentacles into the social and political life. Latin American armed forces have been assimilated into the United States defense system' under which participating countries receive advanced weapons and integrated train- ing. Instruction includes ideology'. The same old ruse of fighting ''communist subversion" is being used to maintain the hemispheric status quo. And Latin American labor syndicates have been emasculated. Their leaders have been trained in our brand of trade unionism so expertly that they can easily be ma- l,t d ~f~l,ecl~~~{{cif '40"W-10 App t . , `tilts Lute for Free Labor Development -to corrupt and ' control popular move- me nts." According to MacEoin, we have also invaded I_atin American culture, finding it beneficial to integrate Latin American higher education with our own machin- cry for establishing academic standing. We can then employ the properly trained nationals in our international industri4!l complex, or drain off the brains where shortages exist at home. Also we have monopolized the mass media so that they may play their part in cultural colonialism; our insistent advertiCing sells both our products and our dollar-sign notions of human needs. The penetration thus appears to he complete. But v,-hat is happening? In Panama, Peru and Bolivia, power has .been seized by the armies "to protect the people from the exploitation of lo- cal oligarchs and their international business allies." Chile has gone the saute road by means of a democratic election. All through the continent, sup- pressed nationalist elements are taking heart. Even .though it may be a long wait, they are holding out to regain the control of their destinies. Mactoin sees a. parallel here with the pacification pro- gram in Indochina: "the more total the penetration the more negative the. re- suits. Political scientists must, in the future, cite this experience as no less significant than that of the Vietnam war when they discuss the limits of power of the great." `STATINTL : CIA-RDP80-01601 R000100190001-3 a) AI LY WORLD.
