SHOWDOWN IN SPAIN

Pulpit cry: `give them a family wage'

AS Spain's industrial crisis worsened, Spanish Bishops came out strongly at the weekend in support of the 85,000 miners and industrial workers on strike in the north of the country.

At the same time Catholic workers' organisations called for radical industrial reforms, especially plant co-ownership and co-management, the repeal of the anti-strike laws, and the release of strikers arrested at the crisis flashpoints.

Eloquent of the widening gap in Church-State relations was Monday's police swoop on Catholic Action headquarters in Barcelona, after Catholic Actionists had distributed thousands of leaflets demanding support for the Asturian miners.

Police withdrew from the raided premises, however, at the request of Mgr. Gregorlo Modrego, Archbishop of Barcelona, hastily summoned to the spot by phone.
