(/r>i—A labor leader from the United Slntes told the Communists - inspired World Peace Congress here today American workers "will refuse to lay down their lives for Wall Sired, Washington and the dollar." Donald Henderson, international president or the Tobacco. Agricultural and Allied Workers Union o( America, an affiliate of Ihe CIO, Was given an ovation by the delegates when he said: "The American working people will not be driven l n t° a war against the Soviet. Union." Henderson called for a tight against "headquarters of world imperialism" which he srtld Is locatct In Washington." Konnl zlljlnciix, ieft-w,Ing member or the British parltamcht, has told this CoiiEress that Drltisl workers will not be "dtflBRed Into fighting against the Soviet," alirt Paul Robeson, American Ncgr< singer, has told the delegates lha' American Negroes never would righ Russia. Henderson declared that (In "common people" In the Unllei States had withstood a "filthy lor ^•ent of anti-Soviet propaganda." V "They have not forgotten." h T continued, "that their homes ar Ihvlolate because the valiant, jjrca Hcd army withstood the monsle of Nazism " Charges Brltwry Henderson accused the u. S. gov *rnmertt Of using every device and trick to confuse, divide, bribe and use democratic people *s weapons against the forces of democracy in the world." Describing conditions In America. Henderson salt! tht working people had felt "som* of the terror of reaction In the Tatt-Hartley Act. which was designed to weaken and If possible smash the unions and prepare the way lor the Atlantic Pact and war designs." In three states, he added, the Communist Party nnd progressive forces have virtually been forced underground." He did not name the •tales. "Unfortunately," he .laid, "bribery Is one of the means of action In our country. Sad to relate, many top labor leaders have made commitment* to the State Department The membership of unions Is more .militant for peace than its leaders ji>nd millions have undertaken to explain the real meaning of the Marshall Plan and the Atlantic Pact," despite the tact that their leaders are under commitment to the State Department.
