  • Description

    A group of British students lobbied Parliament on Thursday (14 Jan.) on behalf of the West German revolutionary Rudi Dutschke, who was recently refused permission to remain in the country.

    Jack Straw, President of the National Union of Students, was among the demonstrating students. He spoke to a reporter in support of Dutschke, whose case will be debated in Parliament on Tuesday (19 Jan.).

    Rudi Dutschke came to Britain in 1968 for medical treatment after being shot in the head by a would-be assassin during student riots in Berlin. He later took up post-graduate studies at the University of Cambridge, where he lived with his American-horn and two children. Dutschke has now formally applied for a permit to live and work in Denmark, after offered a teaching post at Aarhus University.

    An immigration tribunal recently rejected Dutschke's appeal to remain in Britain after a hearing held partly in secret on grounds of national security.

    Mr. Jack Straw spoke in support of Mr. Dutschke, in reply to a question suggesting it was a bad time to be supporting a revolutionary, a day after a bomb attack by persons unknown on the home of the British employment Minister, Mr. Robert Carr.
