comment: The arrests are the first clear sign that
the authorities anticipate trouble later this month and
hope to forestall it through intimidation. Such tactics
are unlikely to prevent protests against martial law, in
view of the widespread disaffection from the regime and
the apparent willingness of the workers to participate
in protest activity. Some demonstrations could occur as
early as Friday, the end of the eighth month of martial law. asjsBSj
