. The organization has received
most of its signatures from college
students in the United States. Folley
explains two reasons for this
outcome.
"College students-because of
their studies-are up on world af-
fairs more than those people in the
work experience who don't have as
much time to take an interest," he

said.
"Secondly, students have more

time to stop and sign the petition. If
you're commuting to work or on a

lunchbreak, you're in too much of a
hurry," Folley said.
The campaign for signatures is
now winding down and the group
will present over five million signa-
tures on microfilm to Lithuanian
President Vytautas Landsbergis.
"If we were to send the original
signatures, they would be as high as
a telephone pole. We would need a
fork lift to carry them," Stephen
Soisson, a member of TFP said.
TFP hopes the signatures will
serve as a catalyst for Lithuania's
freedom. "We want to encourage
Lithuania of their moral support
around the world," said Folley.

Last year dozens of students
worked together with one goal in
mind-Earth Day 1990.
Now that group of environmen-
tally-minded students is looking to
channel the current environmental
craze at the University through a
new group, ENACT-UM.
Members of ENACT U-M
(which stands for Environmental Ac-
tion at the University of Michigan)
decided to adopt a new name because,
while Earth Day 1991 is one of its
main projects, ENACT U-M did not
want its activities to be limited to
one event. The group does not have
a set schedule of events and projects;
instead, it will hear and discuss envi-
ronmental concerns as they come up.
Rather than electing executive of-
ficers, ENACT U-M is run by a
large steering committee which
meets weekly. Members said the
system allows input by a greater
number of people.
Mike Jennings, an LSA junior

r and steering-committee member, said
the group chose the system in order
to "make a strong foundation for
ENACT U-M itself so it will last as
an organization. We want to build a
social closeness for our group,
which is made up of very diverse
people who have come together on
the common goal of improving the
environment."
ENACT U-M is divided into
three committees: campus education,
education of other campus organiza-
tions, and education within ENACT.
"We want to show everyone that
they are part of the environmental
movement. We want to educate them
and teach them to act on what they
have learned," said steering commit-
tee member Juliette Cherbuliez, an
LSA junior.
The campus education committee
will tackle such projects as ridding
the campus of styrofoam, encourag-
ing recycling, coordinating Earth
Day 1991, and publishing a list of

Ann Arbor merchants which use en-
vironmentally-sound methods or
products.
The education of other campus
organizations committee will handle
inter-group relations.
"We hope that by showing stu-
dents how their specific group is af-
fected by the environmental prob-
lems, we can motivate them to go
involved," said steering committee
member Robinne Weiss, a junior in
the School of Natural Resources.
The third committee has the re-
sponsibility of keeping ENACT-UM
members abreast of environmental
problems.
Within ENACT, there is great
concern that the group will be seen
as a fad and not taken seriously
While many people, including for
mer Earth Day 1990 members, at-
tended the first ENACT U-M meet-
ing, members of the steering com-
mittee said they hope to strengthen
the energy and commitment of the
group.

"This is a law that affects mil-
lions of people ... and a major step
forward for democracy," said the leg-
islature's president, Anatoly
Lukyanov, after the vote.
Debate is scheduled to continue
today on a proposed law on public
organizations including trade unions
and political parties. It would set
procedures for forming new parties
and guarantee them equal rights with
the Communist Party.
It would also limit the influence
of any party including the Commu-
nists on the armed forces, police, and
the KGB.
GULF
Continued from page 1
Aside from his hard-edged
rhetoric, Bush appeared to try to un-
dercut Iraqi President Saddam
Hussein's demand that his territorial
dispute with Kuwait be linked to
Arab demands that Israel give up
territory lost by Syria and Jordan in
the 1967 Mideast war.
Bush said that "I truly believe
there may be opportunities" to settle
the Arab-Israeli conflict and to build
"new arrangements" among the
states in the Gulf - but only after
Iraq makes an unconditional
withdrawal from Kuwait.
A similar gesture last week by
President Francois Mitterrand of
France drew a mixed response
Sunday from Saddam, who suggested
that Iraq would fight to defend its
seizure of Kuwait but also offered to
open a "debate" with France on the
region's future.
"We intend to make contacts with
the French government to explain af-
ter inquiry, questioning, and dialogue

The proposed law says, "People
in military service and holding posi-
tions in law enforcement organiza-
tions shall suspend active political
participation in parties." It also
states that, "A citizen's participation
or non-participation in the activity
of a (political party) cannot serve
grounds for limiting his rights an
freedoms including holding a posi-
tion in a state organization." Fi-
nally, it adds that the government
shall not provide "any sort of privi-
leges or advantages" to employees
simply because they are party mem-
bers.
In the past, the Communist Party
has kept a tight grip on the armed
forces and law enforcement agencies
thereby keeping a grip on the entire
country.
The law would also strike at the
Communist Party's privileged posi-
tion in other government agencies
eliminating party membership as a
condition of employment.
our views accurately so that every-
thing is based on clear ideas and ac-
tions," the Iraqi leader said in *
broadcast message on the birthday of
the Muslim prophet Mohammed.
Mitterrand, in a four-step pro-
posal, called first for Iraq's with-
drawal from Kuwait, which it in-
vaded on Aug. 2. The pullout would
be supervised by international ob-
servers as the emirate's sovereignty
was restored.
Then, negotiators would deal
with the division of Lebanon and the
Arab-Israel conflict. In the fourth
stage, armaments in the Middle East
and the Persian Gulf would be scaled
down.
Saddam has suggested he would
pull his troops out if the Arab
dispute with Israel is handled
simultaneously.
The United States has long been
committed to a Mideast settlement
in which Israel would exchange
territory for Arab recognition of its
right to exist.
