"The same t4Ing will happen in Iran
as in Vietnam ?f the American people

doust of te Iranian Students
Association. ")ur duty is to inform the
American peale about the Shah. I feel
they will do miat is right and withdraw
their support'rom this butcher."
MILHAND)UST AND other students
believe the Inited States is gradually
increasing .ts political influence in
Iran, simil~r to U.S. intervention in
Vietnam. 'hey said the U.S. gover-
nment has already offered the Shah
direct miliary support.
"The Uiited States has an elite force
which is designed to destroy all op-

The united States, according to
Mihandust, has Zan interest in Iran's
interna' affairs because "the United
°States ieeds trade with Iran.
"IT 7EEDS A dumping ground," he
said. 'The CIA brought the Shah to
power and he has geared everything
towari American profits. The Iranian

"Iran is the United States' policeman
in the Middle East," added Iranian
student Ali Ehia. "The United States
uses theShah's forces to fight its battles
in the Middle East. Americans are in
control, but they avoid the negative
public reaction which would result if

Ehia, like many othe Iranian Univer-
sity students, accused President Carter
of supporting "atrocities committed by
"THE SHAP HAS directly ordered
tortures, arrests, and the army to shpot
innocent people," she said. "Carter
called the Shah to give his open support
on September 8, the same day the Shah
had 15,000 people killed."
As a result of American support of the
Shah, Ehia warns, any new Iranian
regime would be anti-American.
"If Iran goes, the United States will
suffer a great eclonomic and political
blow," he said.
THE FALL OF the Shah's gover-

"The Shah will be forced to abdicate
and the United States will try to buy off
the movement against him," Ehia said.
"Yet the American people have no in-

Two American Civil Liberties Union
(ACLU) spokespersons reiterated last
night their claim that the FBI was ac-
tively involved in a conspiracy which
left one Detroit civil rights activist dead
and another paralyzed in two separate
incidents during the early 60's.
Speaking at an ACLU forum at an
Ann Arbor residence, Howard Simon
and Marjorie Cowen, members of the
Detroit ACLU chapter, told a crowd of
16 persons about FBI efforts to repress
and silence Detroit civil activists,
Walter Bergman and Viola Liuzzo..
"THE PICTURE OF the FBI's in-
volvement in both matters is a very
disturbing one," Simon said, who is
representing Liuzzo's family. "These
cases are showing the FBI played a role
in opposing the civil rights movement."
The most significant thing bout these
two cases," he added, "is that they're
playing a major role in rewritting the
history of the civil rights struggle."
Luizzo was shot and killed in early
1965 while riding in a car with another
person in Alabama.
Luizzo, who became active in the civil
rights movement in response to a call
from Martin Luther King, was shot and
killed in early 1965 while riding in a car
with another person in Alabama.
THE FATAL SHOT came from
another vehicle crowded with Ku Klux
Klan members, including Gary Thomas
Rowe, an FBI informant. Rowe has
been recently indicted in the Liuzzo
slaying. In May of 1961, Bergman
Who was helping to integrate public
facilities in the South was attacked and
badly beaten after Klan members am-
bushed a bus he was riding on. The at-
tack left Bergman paralyzed from the
Both Bergman and Liuzzo are white.
"The local police departments were
in sympathy with the Klan, and the FBI
became involved in the whole
proceeding," said Simon. "They said
they were protecting national security
and Rowe's cover, but they were really
working against civil rights activities."
