Celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of the Intifada:
The struggle continues

I

The Intifada lives on

Ti HE PALESTINIAN uprising, the In-
tifada, against the Israeli occupation in
the West Bank and Gaza Strip contin-
ues to this day with the active partici-
pation of all sectors of Palestinian so-
ciety. The brute force of Israeli occu-
pation in the form of the four year old
"Iron Fist" state policy coupled with
the hard reality of over 22 years of oc-
cupation precipitated the formation of
a genuine mass action that speaks with
one voice and one message: the Israeli
occupation must end and an indepen-
dent and free Palestinian state must be
recreated in Palestine.
Despite the negligible mainstream
media coverage of the Intifada and the
consequent shibboleths about dimin-
islied resistance and waning enthusi-
asm, the Palestinian people have in-
tensified their level of struggle.
:Moreover, the Intifadah has evolved
qualitatively as well. It is now in its
second phase; a phase which is de-
signed to create an indigenous infras-
tructure creating for the Palestinians
complete and total independence from
the Israeli economy. The first phase,
symbolized by the heroic figure of a
stone throwers courageously facing the
might of the Israeli Army, was primar-
ily designed to redirect and shape pub-
lic opinion through a mass based revo-
lution.
The second phase involves the
building of state apparatuses which can
only strengthen the Unified
Leadership's call for mass civil
disobedience in the form of extended
general strikes and comprehensive
boycotts of all Israeli products and
markets.
After one year of conflict, the Israeli
Defense Forces began turning to more
comprehensive and systematic manifes-
tations of their state policies of might,
beatings, and torture. Stones, against
this kind of state terrorism, were in-
creasingly less effective. The more
political Phase Two with which the
Palestinians have met this onslaught

attempts to build on the groundwork
laid by the initial resistance.
The leadership of the Intifada is now
intent upon eliminating all institutions
of Israeli state power in the Occupied
Territories and supplanting them with
new, indigenous Palestinian institu-
tions. Thus, municipal officials ap-
pointed by the Israelis are being told to
resign or risk reprisal. Palestinian po-
lice people are urged to retire from the
force.
A sense of psychological liberation is
being born - even where the Israelis
are able to impose their own adminis-
tration on an unwilling population. The
sense of collectivism spawned through
the uprising and furthered by the spirit
of cooperation that has become the
hallmark of the Palestine Liberation
Organization promises a future in
which this psychological freedom will
become political as well.
Perhaps most importantly,
Palestinian freedom is now closer
because of the extent to which the
Intifadah has come home to roost
within Israel itself. Largely as a
consequence of the Palestinians'
tremendously effective boycotts of
Israeli goods and withdrawals from
Israeli banks, the already shaky Israeli
economy is reeling. Inflation is
approaching 40%, unemployment has
topped 10%, tourism revenues refuse
to recover. The country as a whole -
increasingly a pariah in the international
community - experienced negative
foreign investment in 1988, and its ex-
ternal debt is mounting daily.
Israel has a choice: it can either face
the continued ramifications of its own
human rights abuses and deteriorating
economy or submit to the inevitable: an
free and independent Palestinian State.
Celebrate the third anniversary of the
Palestinian Uprising by attending a
cultural night in East Quad, 7:00 p.m.
tonight. The Daily encourages all
members of the University community
and local residents to attend.

Today is the second anniversary of the intifada - the popular uprising of
the Palestinian people. In the past two years over 800 people have been
killed, and tens of thousands have been arrested. Because media coverage
of the intifadah is incomplete and inconsistent it is difficult to know exactly
what the situation really is in Occupied Palestine. The following are the
names of those killed since December 8,1987, compiled by the Database
Project on Human Rights. Israel is the largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid
and the tear gas the Israeli military uses is made in the United States.

Don't sell any books yet

WOULD YOU rather sell an unneeded
used textbook for, one dollar or five
dollars? It's a question easily an-
swered. Unfortunately, in the next few
weeks many students will be selling
their textbooks to local book stores,
thus denying themselves the opportu-
nity to get much more money by selling
these books through the Student Book
Exchange.
The Student Book Exchange, a stu-
dent organization which has gained
many happy customers in the past two
years, serves as a marketplace for stu-
dents who wish to sell and buy used
textbooks at prices much better than
those offered by local merchants.
The system is simple. Students
selling books set their own prices, so
they are able to sell them at prices
higher than the buyback rates offered
by the bookstores. Students who buy
the used books from the Student Book
Exchange instead of the bookstores end
up saving considerable cash. It is the
perfect economic system: one which
benefits both the buyer and the seller.
The books are left on consignment, so
that if students fail to sell all of the
books they bring to the Exchange, they
will still have time to take them to a lo-
cal bookstore and sell them.
The Student Book Exchange itself is
a non-profit organization which
deducts 10 percent from each sale in
order to pay for supplies and sales tax.
Leftover money goes to a charity,
probably the American Cancer Society.
Despite the obvious merits of the
Student Book Exchange, the students
running it have been thwarted several
times in their attempts to find a good
location for their biannual market.
Though every student organization has
the right tn rent a rnm in the Union-

there is no clause in Barnes & Noble's
lease which gives the store the exclu-
sive right to buy and sell books in the
Union, it is a "practice" to protect mer-
chants from competition, according to
Union management. Barnes & Noble
pays the University a reported
$400,000 each year for rent. The bar-
ring of the Student Book Exchange
from the Union is intolerable and the
Union Board should reconsider allow-
ing the Student Book Exchange to use
the Union.
The students running the Book Ex-
change have received a cramped loca-
tion in the League basement. This is
unacceptable for an event which draws
thousands of students, and unfair to the
students who are trying to make the
Book Exchange an accessible and af-
fordable choice for everyone in the
community.
Ten years ago, there was a student
run cooperative in the Union called the
University Cellar which bought and
sold textbooks at fair prices. However,
when the Union basement underwent
remodelling the U-Cellar was forced to
leave the Union. Without its central lo-
cation in the Union, the U-Cellar was
soon forced into bankruptcy and closed
in 1986. It is high time that the Union
halls once again ring out with the
sounds of students happily buying and
selling textbooks at a student-run mar-
ket.
Even if the Student Book Exchange
is inconveniently located, it is the best
way for students to sell books for more
and buy books for less. So keep your
unwanted textbooks until the Exchange
opens next term and don't buy any
books until then, either. Using the Stu-
dent Book Exchange makes all the
cents in the world.
