104-10167-10000: EUSEBIO MIJAL WAS ABOUT TO ORGANIZE A FRENTE BIMIDICAL DEMOCRATICO

6/26/60 cable from Director to REDACTED: Late May we learned via BGACTRESS that Eusebio Mujal was about to organize a Frente Sindicial Democratico and that according BGACTRESS sources AMHAWK was involved in this. Parlett/Gerry Droller questioned AMHAWK and AMWAIL about this particular Frente and both expressed complete ignorance. Since no info available HQS Ref A, which appears (to) include all Latin America, we interested any additional info you can obtain, especially as participation Maxwell Raab, Mujal, and Abel Mestre. Meanwhile AMHAWK, Sanchez Arango and Mestre will be queried at first opportunity re their knowledge any such Latin American labor front. In view very derogatory info from AMHAWK on (Romani), reported REF B, request you re-examine proposal of financial aid to (Romani), per paras 4-5 REF A. Even though (Romani) and his group kept in background, we feel at present that aid to them inadvisable since would appear fall in category in category of strengthening a group incapable of coalescing in JMNET per your comment REF C." Chief of Station comments: "Reported (ROMANI) returned San Jose from series of conferences New York and Washington and said his group has been legally constituted in US under name of Frente Sindical Democratico Anti-Comunista de America Latina and that US citizen heading this group and representing it legally was Maxwell RAAB. Mentioned Eusebio Mujal, Abel Mestre, Sanchez Arango and others as connected with the group."
