Solidarity internees deny conditions are humane

Members of the Solidarity free trade union interned in Poland said in a letter from the Bialoleka camp south of Warsaw that reports they were being held in humane conditions were lies. The internees said they were held in cramped, cold cells in a high-security jail and served inedible food. Guards deprived them at will of family visits or food packages.

''The contention of the regime's propaganda that only recently active 'extremist elements' were affected by the internment is. . . a lie,'' the letter said.

The letter, transmitted to the Geneva-based World Alliance of Reformed Churches, appealed for an end to martial law, release of all internees, and a free and democratic government.
