Ecumenical conference discusses
Filipino peace campaign proposal
by Natasha Goburdhun
Over the weekend, participants in
the Seventh Annual National
Ecumenical Conference on the
Philippines (NECP) met at St.
Andrews Episcopal Church to dis-
cuss the proposal for their
"Sustainable Peace Campaign."
The campaign is dedicated to
finding non-violent solutions for
violations of human rights and in-
fractions of justice in the
One conference speaker, Leonor
Briones, focused on the elimination
of the Filipino debt as a way to pur-
sue the groups' goals.
Briones, a professor of Public
Administration at the University of
the Philippines, said the large
Filipino debt is an obstacle to sus-
tainable peace and can only be alle-
viated by increasing their inflow of
Other problems she cited in-
cluded increasing interest rates,
poor governmental programs which
have led to a severe recession, and an
increasing outflow of resources.
She stressed that in the current
situation, more than 70 percent of
the Filipino population lives below
the poverty line.
The other speaker, Richard Falk,
an international law and practice
professor at Princeton University,
said a major impediment to peace is
poor international relations.
Falk said that the Cold War in
Eastern Europe may have subsided,
but that there is still a cold war
waging in Asia. He expressed hope,
however, that a peaceful
arrangement could soon be found.
"A non-violent solution for
conflict is more promising today
than at any point in the last twenty
years. This reflects both the mili-
tary stalemate and learned experi-
ence on all sides that military solu-
tion is not going to work," he said.
Conference participants included
professors, students and church
members, both American and
Filipino, from across the country.
Their common link was that they
have all lived and worked in the

ciety, so there's going to be diver-
sity no matter what, and we've got
to be prepared for it," she said.
Students and professors said that
the program is also used to help mi-
Nancy Thomas, assistant direc-
tor of the Michigan Program in
Child Development and Social
Policy, said her department invited a
group of students from Western
High School in Detroit to hear visit-
ing professor and University gradu-
ate Ricardo Romo speak on his re-
search on desegregation in the
LSA first-year student Norma
Garza was a part of that group. She
said seeing Romo speak was an in-
spiring experience both for her and
the other students there.
"It really gave me a boost to see
a Hispanic like myself having gone
so far and done so much," Garza
said. "I think cutting the program
would deprive other potential in-
coming students of the knowledge
of how other people have benefitted
from graduating from the
University of Michigan," she added
Professors who have taken ad-
vantage of the program said the
funding cuts will make such oppor-
tunities harder to come by.
"The people we've brought in
may have been able to come without
the funding, but we wouldn't have
been able to do the things we did.
For example we couldn't have been
able to bring those kids in from
Detroit," Thomas said.
At the moment, it is unclear
whether the funding will be re-
stored. Charles Moody, vice provost
for Minority Affairs, said he hopes
the University will be able to meet
all its outstanding commitments,
but is unsure about the long-term
future of the program.
"I don't know whether the veto
is just for one year, or whether the
program is gone for good," he said.
McAdoo Poole said the future of
the Visiting Professors Program
will depend on student reaction. "If
enough attention is raised, if enough
people really protest and fight for
this program, it will continue. But
The program has
my world ... I think it's
that it continue'
if people just let it slide, then it
won't come back."
One person who is not willing to
"let it slide" is third-year Rackham
student Robin Soler.
Soler, a founding member of
Students for Research on Latinos, a
group which uses KCP funds to
bring speakers to the University, is
organizing a campaign to send post-
cards to Engler's office protesting
"We have barely any faculty of
color on campus and the KCP pro-
gram is one of the few ways for de-
partments to bring faculty of color
in," she said. "The program has
made a difference in my world, and
in the world of the people I know ...
I think it's extremely important
that it continue."

confused about the paper's advertis-
The Daily business staff's gen-
eral advertising policy states: "The
Michigan Daily reserves the right to
decline, discontinue or revise any
advertisement found unsuitable for
publication and to set the words
'paid advertisement' above any ads."
The Daily's editorial staff has no
control or say in this decision mak-
ing process, Gottesman said.
"I don't support printing every-
thing, but I did not think this ad de-
served to be banned from the mar-
ketplace of ideas, like others might
be," he said.
For example, Gottesman said he
would not print a Ku Klux Klan ad
announcing a lynching on the Diag
or a beer ad with a woman holding a
beer bottle between her breasts.
LSA sophomore Avram Mack
said he disagreed with the revision-
ist ad, but that he also saw a distinc-
tion between the Daily ad and a beer
"A beer commercial is an ad for
money. This is an expression of
ideas," Mack said.
But Yiddish Prof. Anita
Norwich said the ad was not pro-
tected by the principles of the First
"This is not responsible journal-
ism," Norwich said. "This is not
free speech. This is hate speech."

and Moses Stewart, the father of Yusuf lawkins.

Judge, will. moderate the speakers.
