Muslims rally to
protest Algerian
military coup

by Joseph Smith
While some University students
spend their summers soaking up the
rays by the poolside, others have
found a way to enjoy the sunshine -
by working on conservation projects
Oat the nation's parks and wildlife
reserves.
Conservation workers perform a
variety of duties: they patrol park.
grounds, register campers, sell state
park stickers, trim trees and shrubs,

School of Natural Resources se-
nior Jon Noyes volunteered his time
at Multnomah Falls National
Scenic Area in Oregon, during the
summer of 1988. After receiving
training in forest fire fighting,
Noyes was sent for a month to Yel-
* lowstone National Park to fight the
fires that plagued the park through-
out the summer.
Noyes was part of a 20 member
fire crew dropped off by helicopter
at the sides of the fire.
"We tried to control the fire to
keep it from endangering people's
lives," Noyes said. At times, the

fire would get so intense that it
"threw burning wood up to five
miles from the fire," he said.
While working in the conversa-
tion camps can sometimes be excit-
ing, the worker's duties are not al-
ways glamorous.
LSA junior Gerald Post worked
last summer at Yosemite National
Park. Post usually did janitorial
work, but he occasionally helped
out with other jobs.
"I got to go out with the park
rangers to help control burning
fires," Post said. "It was pretty
sweet."
Post also assisted in a search and
rescue mission. "We went in a heli-
copter to look for missing people ...
We actually found them," he said.
There are basically two ways to
get hired, said officials in the
Michigan Department of Natural
Resources.
The local Michigan Employment
Security Commission (MESC) of-
fice is one place to start. Applica-
tions for.individual parks are avail-
able, and after the student fills out
the forms, MESC will send the
completed job application to the
park of choice.
Students can also apply for a
conservation job by directly con-
tacting the national or state park.
Gary Ellenwood, park manager at
Fisherman's Island State Park in
Charlevoix, recommended this
method.
"It's also a good idea to keep in
touch with us until your application
gets processed," Ellenwood said. He
suggested giving the park a call ev-
ery three to four weeks to check up
on applications.

A handful of Muslims gathered
in the cold Friday to protest an even
chillier situation in Algeria.
While standing on the steps of
the Graduate Library holding signs
which read "Army! Back to your
Barracks" and "Does Democracy
Exclude Muslims?" several speak-
ers voiced their opinions about the
military takeover in Algeria.
The military coup followed the
first free election to ever take place
in Algeria. The Islamic Salvation
Front (FIS) won 188 seats out of
231, while the National Liberation
Front, the ruling party for the last
three decades, came in third.
Because of this change in power,
the army cancelled the results of the
election and appointed a council to
oversee the country. Many FIS offi-
cials were arrested and the party
was outlawed.
The protesters said they held the
rally because the army's actions
were unjustified and the choice of
the Algerian people was not
recognized.
"People consider Islam an aber-
ration, something not fit to prac-
tice," said LSA junior David Hun-
sicker during the rally. "They took
over and made a dictatorship, but the
people of Algeria have chosen Islam
as their way of life."
Kamran Bajwa, an LSA sopho-
more and member of the Muslim
Student Association, sees Islam as a
way to remedy Algeria's economic
and political problems.
"Islam is the one answer that can
solve these problems. They don't
want to attack the symptoms. They
want to attack the root of the prob-
lem, which is lack of submission to

a law," Bajwa said. "We have to re-
alize it can't be attacked with polit-
ical philosophies."
The protesters also criticized the
United States government for its
lack of support on these issues, and
the media for its lack of coverage.
"America is the biggest hyp-
ocrite when it comes to Muslims.
They choose to turn the other way,"
Hunsicker said. "The U.S. claims to
'The U.S. claims to
stand for democracy
and freedom of
religion, yet they
don't allow people
like Algerians to
practice the same.
They turn the other
cheek.'
- David Hunsiker
LSA Junior
stand for democracy and freedom of
religion, yet they don't allow peo-
ple like Algerians to practice the
same. They turn the other cheek."
The advocates hoped that the
rally would make more students
aware of the injustices that are hap-
pening in Algeria, and the way the
government is ignoring the prob-
lems there.
"We want to raise awareness of
the political situation in Algeria,"
Fazlur Zahurullah, a first year med-
ical student said. "Political aware-
ness is minimal on this campus."
"If we inform even one more
person about what's going on, then I
think that's a success," said Deana
Solaiman, an LSA sophomore who
came to show her support for the
cause.

Anti-abortion demonstration
Students for Life set up this "cemetery" on the Diag Friday to protest
abortion laws. The United States Supreme Court has agreed to hear a
case which could potentially overturn the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision
which legalized abortion. Last week, both pro-choice and pro-life groups
commemorated the 19th anniversary of the decision.
