committed to ending contra aid and
the bombings in El Salvador.
Before the demonstration, buil-
ding security guards told the
protesters that they would not be
allowed inside the building and
warned them they would risk arrest

Romero, saying "In the name of
God, stop the lies, stop the
Peter Beauvais, a member of the
RCCA, gave a short speech calling
for "education for our hearts."
"It is not always wrong to use
force, but it is always wrong to
desire to use force," he said.
Beauvais said the soil in
Guatemala is red with the blood
from peoples hearts and it was time
for the violence to end.
Shirly McRae, an RCCA
member, decried the repression with
a placard showing the number of
recent deaths in Central America.

main goals," noted Sibel

David Schoem, Pilot' Program
director, said the purpose of the
O program was to discuss all forms of
racism and ways to confront them.
The teach-in featured both formal
lectures and informal rap sessions
about racism within and outside of
the University. Workshops focused
on the direction of the Civil Rights
movement, institutional racism,
racism in the media,the subtleties
of racism, and many other issues.
hIn one workshop, English
V lecuturer Ralph Story, said that
much of the overt attitudinal racism
minorities experience often has root
causes in the American educational
system which often ignores the
contributions of black culture and
"You can go through the entire.
'(educational) system, from K thr-
ough 12 to a Ph.D and not learn
what anybody black or what black
culture is like... that's institutional
racism," he said.
