Transcript Human Rights Abuses Mounting DECEMBER 12, 1986/MONTROSE VOICE 3 The Rothko Chapel Awards By Mary Schlangenstein United Press International A horror story continues to unfold in Guatemala, the KGB is brutalizing Soviet prisoners .and the United States forces Central Americans to return to their war torn nations, said the recipients of two human rights awards in Montrose Wednesday as they pleaded for more assistance. South African Bishop Desmond Tutu presented the Rothko Chapel Awards for Commitment to Truth and Freedom to seven individuals and two organizations at the ceremonies, which is no doubt the biggest event in Montrose that attracts world recognition. Bishop Desmond Tutu and former President Jimmy Carter meet with the press following the awards ceremony Former President Jimmy Carter presented the first $100,000 Carter-Menil Human Rights Prize to Soviet dissident Yuri Orlov and the Mutual Support Group. Orlov said that although publicity about human rights suffering has led to the early release from prison this year of 18 Soviet political prisoners, the recent meeting in Iceland between President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has led to increased pressure on those still jailed. "The KGB is getting its revenge on those who still languish in labor camps," Orlov said through an interpreter. "Here, in a note I have received secretly smuggled out of Perm labor camp Number 36, it says after the Reykjavik summit the regime in the labor camp became more brutal and continues to deteriorate. Two people given human rights awards and the founder of the honor accused the Reagan administration of ignoring Central American human rights abuses, and Orlov said Soviet oppression is getting worse. Oil heiress Dominique de Menil of Houston, who with her late philanthropist husband founded the $10,000 Rothko ('hapel Awards, appeared with not allowed to attend the cermonies by their governments. Soviet psychiatrist Anatoly Koryagin is imprisoned for documenting Soviet use of psychiatric treatment as punishment for political activists. Anti-apartheid activist Helen Joseph was denied a passport to leave South Africa to accept the award and her co- recipient, Albertina Sisulu, did not apply for a passport because of restrictions placed on her by the governemnt.

John Fife during the rehearsal for the Rothko Chapel Awards the award winners at a news conference. "I don't think this administration is doing enough, no, certainly not," she said. "Pm very worried about what is happening in Central America." Nineth de Garcia, a founder of Mutual Support Group in Guatemala, which has demanded the government account for the disappearances of more than 41,000 people, said the Reagan administration is aware of human rights abuse in her country but has taken no steps to help. The disappearance of thousands of men, women and children, including de Garcia's husband, represents a "horror story" in her country, she said. "We want to appeal to the people of the United States because often they do not know what is happening to us," said Dominique de Menil with Dr. Cronid Lubarsky, an expatriot Russion firing in Munich who keeps track of Soviet political prisoners de Garcia. "We know that the government of the United States does know what is happening." Another Rothko Award honored the Sanctuary Movement, a controversial nationwide network of churches that work to secure political asylum for Sal- vadorans and Nicaraguans fleeingcivil war in their homelands. Rev. John Fife, pastor of the South- side Presbyterian Church in Phoenix, Arizona, represented the Sanctuary Movement. He also criticized the government's failure to allow the refugees to remain in the United States. Other honorees were retired Bishop I,collides Proano, who has worked for human and economic rights for Ecuadoran Indians; attorneys Johnathan Kut- tab and Raja Shehadeh, founders of Law in the Service of Man, a legal aid and human rights service in the occupied Israeli West Bank; Myles Horton, Tennessee civil rights activist and founder of Highlander Folk School, an education center focusing on race relations; and Charter 77, an organization to Czechoslovakia that works to secure civil liberties in opposition to the government.
