Of course not, IF that is actually what is happening (that is, *the working
class* has organized the strike). Similarly we supported the original
strikes in Danzig from which Solidarnosc emerged. But when this general
strike is then converted into a political movement to overthrow "Communist
despotism" and establish a "democratic government" which will be welcome in
the "community of nations", I assume that we will all realize that the
situation has changed?
