Polish union leader urges that Solidarity be revived

A union leader who has been living underground for 15 weeks since Poland's military crackdown urged union members to ''revive'' Solidarity.

In the clandestine Solidarity newssheet, Zbigniew Bujak, who led the 1.2 million-strong central Poland sector of the independent union, urged rejection of official attempts to set up a new union movement.

The move came as an influential Polish editor called for the legal abolition of the Solidarity free trade union, arguing that the movement must be rebuilt.

Zdzislaw Morawksi wrote in his newspaper Zycie Warszawy that it would be politically, technically, and organizationally impossible to re-create the unions as they were before martial law. His comments were the first in the official media to suggest such a plan.
