Group protests Soviet
appearance at Crisler

By BILL HANSON
A group of about ten people braved
last night's frigid temperatures and
gathered outside Crisler Arena-the
site of the USSR-Michigan men's gym-
nastics exhibition-to protest human
rights violations in the Soviet Union.
"We're here to protest the internment
of Soviet Jews and others who want to
live their lives in freedom," group
spokesperson Jerry Rogers of South-
field said.
ROGERS SAID the group was spon-
sored by the Detroit Soviet Jewry
Committee of the Jewish Community
Council, and the campus Chabad
House.
The protesters, who gathered at the
top of steps at Crisler's Stadium
Boulevard entrance, handed out
literature to entering spectators and
waved signs with slogans such as, "Ex-
port Jews not vodka."
Much of the literature pertained to
dissident Anatoly Shcharansky, a
Soviet Jew imprisoned in 1978 for
"espionage'' and "anti-Soviet
agitation."
HE HAS reportedly been on a self im-
posed hunger strike since Sept. 26 and is
considered to be close to death.

BESIDES calling attention to the
plight of Shcharansky, Rogers said his
group wanted to make an impression on
the visiting Soviet gymnasts - many of
whom are KGB members, Rogers said.
When the gymnasts return to
the Soviet Union, Rogers said, they are
debriefed by government officials. It is
important that these Soviet officials
know of protests in the United States or
else they will "'clamp down even har-
der" on Jews, he said.
