Anti-discrimination policy opponents face obstacles

by Noah Finkel
Daily Administration Reporter
Daily News Analysis
The Michigan Student Assembly
hosted a forum discussion
Wednesday evening titled: "Do you
want your opinion to count on the
interim discriminatory harassment
policy?"
The student body's answer: a re-
sounding "no."
Only about 80 students attended
the forum, and many of those were
members of MSA or other student
groups represented at the forum.
LSA junior Nick Mavrick, chair

of MSA's Student Rights
Commission, admitted that while

dent input into permanent anti-dis-
crimination rules.

Students who have shown an interest in the
policy cannot speak with anything resembling
a unified voice. Students are of two distinctly
different minds on the issue.

Some students and student orga-
nizations remain opposed to any
anti-discrimination policy. Among
these are the campus branch of the
American Civil Liberties Union and
both the College Democrats and
College Republicans.
These groups are the remnant
vestiges of the old "no code" coali-
tion of student activists, who op-
posed any academic sanctions for
non-academic conduct. They see any
University anti-discrimination rules
as a suppression of free speech.
Third-year law student James

Marsch, a member of the College
Democrats, said at the forum,
"Suppression of expression conceals
the real problems in society... and
are mere band-aids on a pervasive
problem."
Conversely, some students and
student groups have criticized the in-
terim anti-discrimination rules not
because they suppress speech, but
because they are not broad enough.
Included among these are the more
prominent anti-bigotry organizations
on campus, such as the Black
Student Union, the United Coalition

Against Racism, and the Lesbian and
Gay Men's Rights Organizing
Committee.
These organizations see the in-
terim policy as too narrow and
would like to see the permanent pol-
icy include sanctions against those
who issue epithets aimed at groups,
not just for those who attack indi-
viduals.
"We have to understand that there
is such a thing as group discrimina-
tion," said LSA sophomore Devlin
Ponte of the BSU.

Hundreds of Ann Arbor students
and workers are heading to Washing-
ton, D.C. today and tomorrow to
join tens of thousands of pro-choice
demonstrators gathering for the sec-
ond "Mobilization for Women's
Lives" sponsored by the National
Organization of Women.
The abortion rally, from noon
until 4 p.m. on Sunday, will "try
and send a message out to President
Bush, the Congress, and ourselves
that we will not tolerate the disman-
tling of Roe v. Wade," said Jennifer
Radin, NOW's college campuses or-
ganizer and a graduate of Amherst
College.
Demonstrators will focus on in-
fluencing the Supreme Court and

Participants from Ann Arbor
"will look to take part in great activ-
ities nationally and organize groups
to work together for abortion
rights," said Rebecca Barlow, the
rally organizer from Ann Arbor's
Committee to Defend Abortion
Rights (AACDAR).
Radin said it is hard to tell if
this event will draw more Ann Arbor
residents than the pro-choice demon-
strations in April. "A lot more peo-
ple are driving than taking the NOW
sponsored buses, so it is impossible
to get an accurate count yet," said
Radin.
"At least 1,000 people from
Michigan are going and for every
person in Washington there will be

people, said AAUAR member
Paul Carmouche.
The Ann Arbor buses and car-
pools are leaving from today until
early tomorrow morning.
NOW is encouraging participa-
tion from college students, since col-
lege-age women have the most abor-
tions. "And they have 35 years of
reproductive life ahead of them that
the Supreme Court and other institu-
tions are trying to mess around
with," Radin added.
"It is our time, our turn, and our
responsibility to get out and protect
our rights. Our parents and grandpar-
ents have been fighting for these
rights for years and now it is up to

Vandals
smash
cabinet
in dorm
by Liz Paige
A glass showcase in East Quad-
rangle containing artworks from the
Voices of Women of Color exhibit
was vandalized yesterday morning.
The cabinet, in the hallway out-
side the Residential College Offices
in East Quad, was "smashed by un-
known suspects," according to secu-
rity officers. The artworks them-
selves were not damaged.
The Housing Security officers
who took the report said that the
damage occurred between 5:10 and
