Daily MSA Reporter
Coalition-building is the key to
the future of student activism, said
members of a panel discussion last
The focus of the discussion, ti-
tled "Student Power in the
Nineties," featured campus activists
supporting anti-racism, gay men
and lesbian rights, and solidarity
with third world countries. It was
the third event of Student
Rights/Activism Week, sponsored
by the Michigan Student Assembly
"The most important trend is the
apprehension of the interrelation-
ship of oppressions," said Patrice
Maurer, a member of the AIDS
Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT-
She explained that homophobia,
sexism, racism, and economic op-
pression have "common roots,

common beneficiaries, and support
each other."
Building coalitions with citizens
of developing countries on an equal
level is the key to solidarity, said
Mike Fischer, a member of the
Palestine Solidarity Committee.
Fischer spoke of activists being
"motivated for the wrong reasons,"
which he called "guilt-tripping or
do-gooder liberalism."
Fischer said those working for
third-world solidarity must consider
the citizens of those countries our
equals, and treat them with respect
rather than deference.
Perlita Muiruri, a member of the
United Coalition Against Racism
(UCAR), agreed that coalition
building is important, but in fight-
ing racism, the foundation must
first be built among students of
Muiruri said UCAR's first prior-
ity is "to try to come together with

other groups for students of color."
"There's no way UCAR can deal
alone with the increasing conser-,
vatism on campus," she said.,
"Coalition work is going to be re-
ally important." a
Muiruri accused the University
administration of creating a
"sophisticated rhetoric machine," to.u
lead people to believe something
has been done to combat institu-
tional and overt racism.
She also cited several actions
have succeeded in making the Uni-
versity's atmosphere less comfort-
able for students of color, such as
the recently-enacted Student Spon-
sored Events Policy and the creation
of a campus police force.
The police force, as well as:
other actions by the administration,
including a Code of Non-Academic
Conduct are the "on-campus" issues
that will draw groups together, said
MSA President Jennifer Van Valey.

Panel members Perlita Muiruri, Jennifer Van Valey, Mike Fischer, and Pattrice Maurer discuss "Student
Power in the Nineties" at Rackham's East Conference Room last night.

Beginning today more than 400
parents are expected to converge on
Ann Arbor for the second annual
Parents Weekend. The event is spon-
sored by the Student Alumni Coun-
cil (SAC).
Unlike last year, this year's
weekend will not feature a home
football game.
"The parents will get full flavor
of the University, not just the athlet-
ics," SAC advisor Leslie Thomas
said. "Most parents last year just
signed up to get the football tickets.
That is a major reason why our
numbers are way down from a year
Last year more than 1,200 par-
ents came to Parents' Weekend.
This year's program features a
wide range of events. Today at
Rackham Hall, Political Science
Prof. Kenneth Lieberthal will lecture
on "China after Tiananmen Square."
"My parents plan on going to
Lieberthal's lecture," LSA Sopho-

more Geoffrey Jones said. "It should
be very informative."
Tonight each residence hall will
have an activity, ranging from dinner
at South Quad to a "Mocktail" party
at Couzens hall.
Not all students plan to take ad-
vantage of the gourmet activities.
LSA first-year student Ed Andrews
said, "I'm going out to dinner. I

to 6 a.m.
If you are alone at night but do
not follow any of the above precAi-
tions, be careful. Walk upright aid
quickly. Students who appear strong
and confident are less likely to beAt-

Available services boost

As the days grow shorter, night-
time safety becomes more impor-
tant. Walking alone at night is dan-
gerous. Numerous University safety
facilities are available for students
who live on or off-campus.
SAFEWALK is a nighttime, stu-
dent-run team walking service that
runs every night of the week. Begun
over four years ago and based in
room 102 of the UGLi,
SAFEWALK instructs two people
(two women or one man and one
woman) to escort any student in need
of a walk from anywhere within a
twenty-minute radius of the UGLi,
so as to insure safety.
"We walk more students in nice
weather," said Safewalk dispatcher
Mike Chung. "Mostly women re-
quest walks."
SAFEWALK dispatches walkers
between 8 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.

weeknights and 8 p.m. and 11:30
p.m. weekends, busiest hours be-
tween 10 p.m. and 2 a.m.
NORTHWALK, based in Bursley
hall, has been available to students
on north campus for two years and
offers services similar to SAFE-
WALK. NORTHWALK is expand-
ing this fall through the addition of
weekend availability, open to stu-
dents until midnight.
"Public safety donated their old
radio system to us which has ex-
panded our team abilities. We can ra-
dio the walking team wherever they
are, which allows them to move
more quickly to their next walk,"
said NORTHWALK coordinator Tr-
ish Olson. "To insure safety, no one

to the radio system."
"The new radio system is great,"
said Safewalker Aaron Malina. "We

The University nighttime bus
service, Nite Owl, leaves the UGLi
every thirty minutes from 7 p.m. to
2 a.m. The Nite Owl conducts two
different routes: one for the dorms on
the hill and one for central campus
dorms, sororities and fraternities.
"We service around 100 people
on an average night with the heavi-
est times between 9 p.m. and mid-
night," said Nite Owl Driver Mike
Kozakiewicz. "Only about 20% of
the people who use Nite Owl are
