split: HRP. rejects

Stating that there is room in the party
for differences of opinion, the Human Rights
Party Sunday made its first official com-
ments on the decision of the Rainbow People's
Party to withdraw support for HRP's fall
The statement was not intended as an
appeal for reconciliation according to party
spokesmen, but rather was an attempt to
clarify the differences between the two
groups and set straight some of the criticism
levelled at HRP by the Ann Arbor Sun, the
RPP paper.
In the Sun's September 1 issue, RPP
spokesmen explained their decision to split
with HRP for the fall campaign, ending an
alliance which began some nine months ago.
The split, for now, only applies to this fall's
campaign, as RPP officials affirmed their
support for the HRP platform and the party's
current office-holders.
The immediate reasons for the break center
around the results of HRP's August 24 con-
vention, but spokesmen for both groups con-

cede that more fundamental questionsabout
the nature of the party and its constituency
were really at the heart of the split.
According to the Sun, the August nominat-
ing convention was dominated by a "narrow-
minded, ego-oriented, ultra-leftist faction of
the Human Rights Party, which would ignore
the interests of the people in order to satisfy
their own dry intellectual lusts."
RPP representatives were particularly in-
censed by the decision of the convention,
not to nominate a candidate for the office
of sheriff, blaming what they call the "liberal
opportunism" of the party for that action.
They also accused certain party regulars
of employing "parliamentary tricks and sin-
ister maneuvers" in an attempt to silence
RPP viewpoints.
In their Sunday release, HRP spokesmen,
explained that the decision not to run a
candidate for sheriff was made only after
the two people who had been considered for
the post were forced to withdraw for per-
sonal, not political reasons. The charges of
parliamentary chicanery were also denied.

The main thrust of the HRP statement,
however,dealt with the conflicting ideas
held by the two groups about the party's
direction and constituency.
RPP members feel that the party's atten-
tion should be focused on street people and
"freeks," a position HRP finds untenable.
HRP, according to the statement, feels
that the party should appeal to social and
economic groups rather than simply age
groups, with particular emphasis on the
laboring and oppressed classes. They further
disagree with RPP's emphasis on issues like
rock and roll and marijuana, which they
see as rather trivial in the overall political
In effect, the two groups represent two
rather different lifestyles, each viewing the
other with a certain amount of suspicion and
HRP has tried to establish itself as a
serious political party with a well-defined
ideology and a system of tight party" disci-
pline. The Rainbow People on the other hand
reject such restrictions and are more inter-

People's charges
ested in matters relating to the youth culture.
HRP campaign manager Steve Nissen in-
dicated, however, that the loss of RPP
support would have a minimal impact on
the campaign.
"The party can still win in November
without the support of RPP," commented
Nissen. "They supplied only about one per
cent of the workers for the city council cam-
paign last spring, and they were really only
involved in Genie Plamondon's race in the
third ward."
Nissen admitted that RPP did aid in the
publicity aspect of the campaign and lent
the party $750 out of a total budget of $5,000.
He added that money would not be as hard
to raise in this campaign, since the party
had established itself as a credible political
However, according to the Sun, HRP can
not possibly put together a broad enough
coalition to win in November, without sup- :>
port from the elements of the community Steve Nissen
RPP represents.

Paul Doumer Bridge within the city limits of Hanoi in one
of the mpst intense raids of the war on the North Vietnamese
capital, the Air Force claimed yesterday.
In the ground war officers reported the threat to Hue
had been ended with the smashing of a North Vietnamese
division that had menaced the old imperial capital in the
northern front.
It was the first significant victory claim on the northern
front contrasting with the government's failure to recapture
Quang Tri north of Hue.
