Greetings to the Move people from exile. Being also that back then
when the Feds, CIA and local cops were not trying to kill Panthers
or Move people they were chasing us smashing down doors and
putting guns to my childrens head also. Naturally the real political
threat that the Panthers and MOVE represented in the ghettoes was
the real reason for these vicious attacks and brutal murders. Just
as the Jamal trial today is a political trial and attempt to murder
any black person who begins to point the finger at the
real enemy.

Warm Regards

==============================

APPEAL

Robertsfors,Sweden

Dear Friends,

My name is Robert Malecki and I need your help. I need the help
of the members in your organisation. I need the help of all
organisations who claim that they stand on the side of poor and
working class people.

I have been living in exile in Sweden for over 23 years because of
my activities during the Vietnam war. If I were to return to the
United States, I could be put in prison for a very long time and
therefore this plea for help.

Between the years 1968 and 1972 I publicly took responsibility for
the destruction of tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of
thousands, of draft files and orders calling young, mostly poor and
working class kids, up to be sent to Vietnam. Statements to the
newspapers, T.V. and radio usually said "that we would not
tolerate sending working class kids off to Vietnam to kill other
poor and working class kids".

I  also took responsibility for the destruction of the international
computer network of the Dow Chemical Corp. in Washington DC.
This company produced napalm and agent orange for the bombs
being dropped on Vietnam. Because of this action and others Dow
Chemical stopped its production of napalm.

However we were unable to stop the war.

Speaking of large corporations who are prepared to commit
genocide against innocent people one should mention that this is
still going on today. A large mining company called the Conzinc
Rio Tinto with its head office in Australia has been strip mining on
the island of Bougainville. The people who inhabit the island are
fighting for their independence and have closed the mine. The
mining company and the Australian government are financing a
dirty little war on Bougainville in order to open up the mine again.
One would think that the Australian government had learned its
lesson after the Vietnam fiasco! They were allied with the
Americans remember?

Anyhow those who read this letter should try and raise this matter
in and appropriate way. Just as the Vietnamese needed support
back then, the people on the island of Bougainville need support
today. Perhaps all of you Vietnam veterans who got tricked into
fighting for the profits of Dow Chemical and others in Vietnam
could help stick the mining company Conzinc Rio Tinto and the
Australian government and their policies of genocide against the
wall. That would really be justice!

In November of 1969 I was caught coming out of a draftboard
with military files. I was put on trial and sentenced to 12 years in
prison. In  defence actions I took up the Nuremberg trials after
the second world war. I said that there was no difference between
the Nazi concentration camps and the American bombings of the
Vietnamese people. Therefore it was my duty to break national
laws, in protesting American war making policy in Vietnam, in
order to uphold international laws. This defence was not allowed
by the court and I was sent to a maximum security prison in
Lewisburg, Penn.

At this prison there were many others sitting because of their
activities against the United States government. There were black
nationalists, black panthers, anti-war activists and even some
Russian spies! Jimmy Hoffa, leader powerful Teamsters Union was
there and not in the least Catholic priests like Phil Berrigan.
I sat in this prison 27 months. However my activities against
the war in Vietnam did not stop there.

One of the more spectacular actions was the time a Russian spy,
who claimed that his parents had been killed in "Dresden" during
the second world war and I purposed publicly to be exchanged for
two B-52 pilots, alive or dead, because we believed that the
Vietnamese struggle for independence was correct. The United
States government had not succeeded in silencing the opposition to
its criminal war policies and therefore found new ways to try and
keep people in prison.

Conspiracy trials, that is you did not have to do anything against
the government to be put on trial, merely talking about it was
enough. One of the big conspiracy trials of the time was the case
against Phil Berrigan and other Catholic priests and nuns who,
according to the government, were planning to bomb the White
House and attack the B-52 bomber planes stationed on Guam in the
Pacific Ocean. The key person in this frame up was an agent sent
in by the government to the prison we were in to get the goods on
people. I could have been a defence witness in this case.

However at the same time as the above was going on I was
charged by a "secret grand jury" for conspiracy to bomb public
buildings and electric powerplants among other crimes.

The funny thing about this is that it never happened! The White
House, planes on Guam, electric powerplants, public buildings was
a conspiracy according to the government. In reality we were
people who had always taken responsibility for our actions.

At the same time that this was going on, Jimmy Hoffa leader of
the powerful transport union, received a pardon from Richard
Nixon the president. Was Nixon afraid that Hoffa would join an
anti-war coalition and bring the working class out against the war?
Serious discussions were going on and the possibility was a real
threat. I watched Jimmy Hoffa walkout of prison and I believe that
his deal with Nixon was a betrayal of poor and working class
people. Soon after Jimmy Hoffa disappeared. I wonder who killed
him? The government? The Mafia? Hmmm!

After 27 months in prison I was released on bail pending trial
for the above. 25,000 dollars raised by the anti-war movement
gave me the chance to go underground and come to Sweden. I
applied for political asylum and received a humanitary asylum
mainly because the Social Democratic Party under the leadership
of Olaf Palme had gone over to the Vietnamese side after Nixon,s
massive bombings of Vietnam.

When Bill Clinton became   president I wrote him a letter
demanding amnesty. I thought that Clinton,who had gone to
England during the war, would understand my situation. Well I
waited nearly two years for and answer from Bill Clinton.

Now I heard from a friend that McNamara has written a book
which has made front page news both in the states and  Australia.
After all these years, he is saying now, that he knew that this war
was all wrong. This is and act of a political coward,however better
late then never. It appears to me that many people now, 25 years
after the war, are creeping out of the closet and saying things
about how wrong this war was. Well if these people  had any guts,
they would help people like myself get the right to return home.

 I will never say I am sorry for my actions against the war
in Vietnam.  Millions of people suffered and are still suffering
because of the bombings. Tens of thousands have cancer and
children are still being born deformed because of chemicals like
agent orange!

Besides that it was not I who was the criminal, it was people
like Richard Nixon who were responsible for the war.I have
children and grand children in the United States who I would like
to visit. I want the right to return to the U.S., the country of my
birth and walk the streets as a free man. I mean people like Bill
Calley, leader of the My Lai massacre, are walking free today in
the U.S. at the same time peopl like me can not return home.

I have always taken responsibility for my actions, publicly in
newspapers, T.V. and radio. I do not intend to crawl back to the
U.S. begging for forgiveness. However, I would accept an
amnesty or pardon. The United States government can call it
anything they want as long as the charges against me between the
years 1968 and 1973 are dropped.

In closing I would like to say that I need your help just as I need
the help of organisations claiming to stand on the side of poor and
working class people.

Unlike Bill Clinton I could not run off to England during the war
in Vietnam. Unlike McNamara, I did not creep out of the closet
25 years later, to talk about being against the war! But I still
remember the faces of the Vietnamese children running down a
highway in Vietnam while napalm was burning holes in their little
bodies and I did fight the best way I knew how!
Please publish this letter.

Send this letter to other people, other organisations, other
countries.

Send a letter to the White House. Send a letter to me. But please
help.

Don't forget the dirty little war, going on today, in Bougainville
mentioned in the letter. Especially you Vietnam veterans, now you
have a real chance to get those corporate creeps responsible for
sending you off to die for their profits!  This mining company,
Conzinc Rio Tinto, with offices in Australia and London are
carrying out a genocidal war TODAY!!!, along with theAustralian
government. The people on Bougainville need your help! Put these
creeps asses against the wall!

Demand the U.S. government take up this matter.

Demand that the charges against me be dropped.

Demand the right for me to return to the U.S.

Ask Bill Clinton if he enjoyed Nixon,s funeral.

Tell McNamara if he had any guts he would fight for people like
myself. We didn't hide in the closet I am feeling like the Japanese
soldier who was found on a deserted island in the Pacific Ocean 25
years after the second world war. His first question being "is the
war over?".
