S. African
Sgovernment
ignores protests

The Michigan Dily - Friday, December 7, 1984 - Page 3
Decision postponed
on Brown protesters

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP) - The government ignores the
daily demonstrations outside its
Washington embassy, but the state-run
radio has called the protesters "crack-
pots" and pro-government newspapers
say foreigners should keep out of South
African affairs.
South African groups that oppose
apartheid, the white-minority gover-
nment's system of racial separation,
say they welcome anything that attrac-
ts attention to their nation's 22 million
blacks. But they say Americans have a
short attention span, that the current
U.S. spotlight on the demonstrations
will fade and the lot of the blacks will be
unchanged.
Corrections
The Michigan Student Assembly
Tuesday endorsed an open letter to the
University community opposing the
reorganization of the dental school's
minority recruitment and retention
program. The letterwas written by a
"member of the Black Dental Students
Association. A story in Wednesday's
Daily incorrectly stated that MSA black
student researcher Roderick Linzie
wrote the letter.
Total black enrollment in the dental
school is currently 6.5 percent and the
1983-84 entering class has 7 percent
black enrollment, according to figures
from the Office of the Registrar. A
story in Wednesday's Daily incorrectly
reported these figures.
Lee Jones, program recruiter, coun-
selor, and admissions officer holds a
part-time position in the dental school.
A story in Wedneday's Daily incorrec-
tly reported that he holds a full-time
appointment.
Anne Marie Coleman works at Guild
House. A story appearing in yester-
day's Daily misidentified her.

THE GOVERNMENT has made no
official comment on the U.S. demon-
strations that began Nov. 21 to protest
apartheid, under which blacks cannot
vote or move freely about in the nation
governed by 5 million whites.
Twenty-five Americans, including
nine congressmen, have been arrested
in the protests but charges against most
have been dropped. A U.S. diplomatic
source who spoke on condition that he
not be identified speculated that the last
thing the South African government
wants is the additional attention that
trials would bring.
At issue is President Reagan's policy
of "construction engagement" with
southern Africa. U.S. Assistant
Secretary of State for African Affairs
Chester Crocker says the United States
is quietly urging South Africa to
reform.

equipment, a jewelry box, and scuba
diving gear.

Another break-in occured in the 800
block of Green Street Wednesday at
2:15 a.m., Suomala reported.

A decision on whether any
disciplinary action will be taken again-
st the 63 Brown University students who
participated in a rally against the Cen-
tral Intelligence Agency last month will
be delayed until late this afternoon, a
spokesman said yesterday.
Brown University's Council on
Student Affairs will not announce their
decision on the 62 undergraduates in-
volved in the protest until they decide
about the one graduate student in-
volved, said Brucie Harvey from the in-
formational services department.
HARVEY SAID the council, which
made its decision on the un-
dergraduates yesterday afternoon,
would deliberate the graduate student's
case this afternoon at 4 p.m. and an-
nounce their verdict at about 6 p.m.
The council is usually made up of
students, faculty, and administrators,
but the protesters decided against
having students on the committee
because of rumors that they were
discussing the punishment before the
hearing.
The protesters are accused of
"disrupting the exercise of others of
their basic rights to which they are en-
titled on campus," a charge which tops
the list of rules in the student handbook.
Violation warrants suspension or
dismissal, Harvey said.
According to Juliet Brodie, a Brown
senior involved in the protest, about fif-
teen minutes into a CIA recruitment
meeting last month, the protesters blew
a whistle and tried to make a citizens
arrest on two CIA recruiters.

IF SHE IS dismissed from the
university for her actions, Brodie said,
"It's worth it." She said that the
protesters were merely trying to uphold
the law by attempting to stop what the
consider illegal actions in Nicaragua.
But last night, protesters felt that
they would not be sever 3ly punished for
the action. "It would be a travesty if
we're expelled," said Rachael Phipps,
a Brown senior. "It would be absurd for
us to be punished for trying to stop the
CIA's heinous and illegal activities."
Todd Wier, a sophomore, said that at
the end of the students' hearing early
yesterday morning, about 300 students,
who had been sitting there for 10 hours,
started cheering wildly.
WIER SAID that if they're found
guilty, there will be a "non-violent
student uprising on campus."
The university would not rule against
them for fear of ruining their liberal
image, he added.
Other students, though, doubted that
they would be acquitted. "It would be
hard-pressed for them to find us not
guilty," said John Costin, a senior.
"They know that people are watching.
They don't want to set a precedent that,
'yes, it's okay not to tolerate,' which is
a pretty radical stance."
COSTIN ADDED that the protesters
presented a very strong case at their
hearing which lasted from 4 p.m. Wed-
nesday to 1:40 a.m. yesterday.
The protesters' two main points are
that the university has no authority to
judge whether their citizen's arrest was
valid, and that the CIA meeting
violated university rules.

have to be more of a focal point of our
foreign policy.. ."
Sims had no immediate comment on
the Lugar letter but said the ad-
ministration did not object to the House
numbers' letter to Fourie.
The ambassador said he is "still
studying" the letter and found meeting
with the House members to be "con-
structive."
In all, 28 people, including nine mem-

bers of Congress, have invited arrest on
misdemeanor charges outside the em-
bassy during almost-daily marches
resumbling the non-violent protests of
the civil rights era 20 yearstago.
Marches have also been staged over
the past week outside South African
consulates in New York, where 16
people have been arrested; Boston,
where two people courted detention;
Seattle, and Los Angeles.
