NEWS FROM THE COUNTRY
The [BALTIC] Coast--All the shipyards are deserted. Production is halted until January 2, 1982. In some of the shipyards (the Lenin Shipyard and the "paris Comune" Shipyard [IN GDYNIA], there are a few detachments of the ZOMO [MOTORIZED RIOT POLICE]. The workers have decided that they will sign the oaths of loyalty because a coerced signature is not binding. On January 2, 1982, there will be a strike that will last until the state of war is lifted and all Solidarity activists are freed.
