A send-off rally was held last night in Regents Plaza as students, community
activists and union members (upper left) prepared for the Solidarity Day
march in Washington. Bob Alexander, an administrative aid for State Sen.
Ed Pierce, spoke for Pierce at the rally that was hosted and payed for by
State Rep. Perry Bullard (lower left). Martha Hammerman, a graduate
from the School of Public Health, and Phyllis Hochberg, a free-lance artist
(facing forward), were just two of the 140 people that were headed for
Washington (upper right). The Solidarity Day march is being held to protest
Reagan's economic policies. A crowd of about 200,000 is expected to storm
Washington tomorrow in an effort to change those policies. The Washington
demonstration is being sponsored by the AFL-CIO and is expected to be the
largest protest ever staged by labor. Besides the vans that left from Ann Ar-
bor last night, car pools have also been established to take people to
Washington. Approximately 200 people from Ann Arbor are expected to at-
tend the demonstration. The protestors will be returning Sunday and Mon-

yesterday to discuss a stern ultimatum
from the Soviet Union demanding im-

anti-Sovietism" in Poland once and
Solidarity union officials also planned
an emergency meeting to discuss the

before the exercises. If they have to
conduct a military operation, they are
in a much higher state of organization,"
the diplomat said.
