"As a community, we believe that students have the right to
form their own associations, elect representatives to governing
bodies, and tax themselves to support organizations which
represent their interests. In our society, it requires significant
resources for a group to be heard. If students are denied the
right to found, operate and fund their own organizations, then
they are relegated to the status of second-class citizens without
the means to present their concerns effectively.
"We, the undersigned, endorse the ballot proposal to fund
PIRGIM through a refundable fee of $1.25 added to the MSA fee.
We believe that the PIRGIM funding question is an important
students' rights issue. Last year, 16,800 students--a majority of
the U-M campus--signed petitions demanding that students
have the right to assess themselves a $2 refusable fee for PIRGIM.
The Michigan Student Assembly, the faculty Senate Assembly,
and numerous local and state officials endorsed students' right to
assess themselves the fee.
"In spite of this support for the PIRGIM fee, the Regents of the
University publicly and privately refused to respect the
students' decision to assess themselves the fee. The consequence
of their refusal is to threaten PIRGIM's very existence at U-M.





"We now have the opportunity to protect
students' rights and save PIRGIM. We believe
the campus should vote 'yes' on Proposal B" -
