Palm Beach Post, Monday, Xov. 11, 1968 3 Brazilian Student Protests Maximize Sympathy (CI DfepUck at Uk Time., Undo LONDON Throughout much of this year students have been doing most of the "funning" in the politics of Brazil. The country-, with 80 million inhabitants, has been governed since 1964 by a military regime headed by the President, Marshal Artur Da Costa eSilva. The student activists are a classes in Brazil, any more than they were in France. But in a developing country where the organized mass political movements are banned they constitute a means of communication-to be ignored or heeded at will between the population and the government. The students have the time (and the lack of family responsibilities) to get their tiny minority, but several have lost their lives as the agitation, spilling over into wide-ranging criticism of the regime, has been put down by what many Brazilians consider disproportionate force by the political and paramilitary police ordered out by the government. Student demonstrations are not popular with the ruling heads bashed in or to run away and fight another day, but they are also now conscious of the power that the va-cum caused by the absence of conventional Democratic means of communication gives them. So, too, are anti-government political forces who seek to manipulate this st udent power. The student organizations, such as the National Students' Union (UNE), underground since it was banned after 1964, have sought to conduct all their public demonstration campaigns so as to capture maximum potential public support. The movement has become steadily more radical since It began after a 17-year-old student was killed by police in Rio last mass movement, whose ultimate aim Is the return of full democracy to Brazil. While the police have accused the student leadership of links with Communist Cuba, an extremist right-wing student group, the so- called CCC tCom-mandos for Hunting Communists) has recentlv emerged. Some of the Brazilian mili March, with the sequel of massive street demonstrations and the intervention of the Roman Catholic Church to get a dialogue started with the government about university and educational reforms. The student leaders political aims have evolved, too, developing the theory that they can only be the spearhead of a broader tary see the students as another kind of spearhead, that of a large-scale "subversive plot" against Brazil, and have been pressuring the government behind the scenes. But Costa e Sil-va, while finding an International inspiration behind this year's student unrest, wants his government to continue the policy of firmness and public order. scale! id m. zfi iM) 11 1 famous name leather look-alikes Keg.
