in support of affirmative action, includ-
ing John Johnson, the executive director
of the Detroit branch of the NAACP,
sociology and Afroamerican studies
Prof. Eduardo Bonilla-Silva and
numerous University students.
Johnson said "the eyes of the nation
are on the University of Michigan" as
well as the state in general, because of
the recent lawsuits.
"Affirmative action, contrary to what
the media wants people to believe, is
not about exclusion and preferences,
but about inclusion and equal opportu-
nity," Johnson said.
Activities held on other college cam-
puses ranged in size from a small rally
at Cornell University to larger marches
and sit-ins. To demonstrate the impact
of Prop. 209 in California, Yale
University planned to hold a rally in
which 40 percent of the students of
color painted their faces white.
More than 300 people attended a day of
action speak out at New York University.
Sabrina Comizzoli, a law third-year stu-
dent at NYU, said that although the uni-
versity had planned a day of action before
they heard about the University of
Michigan's plans, the University provided
them with support and inspiration.
"It gave us a lot of support in that it had
been successfuIl." Comizzoli said. "We
thought, 'Wow, it would be great to do a
similar thing at schools everywhere."'
After the Angell H all rally,
University students marched to the
Modern Languages Building and then
to the Michigan Union.
Organizers said the day was organized
to begin building a national movement in
defense of affirmative action.
"It's a real development," said
Caroline Wong, a BAMN member.
"We've taken the first steps in building
a national movement."
Wong said the success of the day
should not be measured by the numbers
of people that took part in the day's
activities, but by "the qualitative devel-
opment" of the movement.
But sone students said they did not
support the day of action. Jeff Schroeder,
a law student at Wayne State University,
passed out fliers during the rally
denouncing the National Day of Action.
"It's all the same protest. It's the
same slogan, the same people," he
said. "People who are opposed to
affirmative action are not going to
come here and be shrieked at by these
The day of action on the Universitv's
campus was organized by United for
Affirmativ e Action and sponsored by
campus groups, including the Black
Student .nion, Alianza and Academics
for Affirmative Action and Social
February's day of action featured a
rally, sit-ins and teach-ins. Event orga-
nizers encouraged students to skip
classes in support of affirmative action.
After the success of the first day of
action, a mass e-mail was sent to
schools across the nation early in
March, asking schools to participate in
a second National Day of Action.
"I do support the day of action
because it's very important for all of the
races to come together not only on this
day, but everyday," said LSA sopho-
more Shawta Polk.
About 60 people attended a BAMN
mass meeting in the Union Ballroom fol-
lowing the rally. Those who attended the
meeting discussed the lawsuit interven-
tion and the recently released figures
showing the drop in minority admissions
in the University of California at
Berkeley. Attendees passed a proposal to
create a Defend Affirmative Action

House nears passage of highway bill
WASHINGTON - - The House neared pasage yesterday of a 5217 billion
spending bill that would shower states with -ighway projects but raise questions
about whether the commitment to a balanced budget has given way to old-t' h-
ioned pork barrel politics.
The six-year spending bill, expected to pass overwhelmingly last night, was tout-
ed as salvation to the nation's crumbling bridges, overtaxed mass transit systcms
and dangerous highways. It would create hundreds of thousands of high-payi*
"This is a bill that is good for all America for all time," said Rep. James Oberst ar
of Minnesota, ranking Democrat on the Transportation Committee.
But it also exceeds by S26 billion the sum last year's balanced budget deal set
aside for transportation projects, prompting concern that, oii the verge of the first
balanced budget in three decades, Congress was already slipping back into its old
"I simply do not feel we have the money," said Rep. David Obey f
Wisconsin, ranking Democrat on the Appropriations Committee. lie said it
was "spectacularly irresponsible" that neither the Senate, which approved a
S214 billion bill a month ago, nor the louse had specified how it would p
for the extra spending.

U.S. backs Israeli
pullout in Lebanon
WASHINGTON - The Clinton
administration yesterday backed an offer
by Israel to pull its troops out of
Lebanon and called for direct negotia-
tions between the two sides on new bor-
Hundreds of Israeli soldiers, support-
ed by mostly Christian militia, have
manned an enclave inside Lebanon's
side of the border since 1982 to keep ter-
rorists from crossing into Israel to attack
The cost is high. Some 1,000 Israeli
soldiers have been killed, making the
operation unpopular. Yesterday, the Israeli
Cabinet accepted a 1979 U.N. Security
Council resolution that called for a pull-
out with new security arrangements.
Lebanon reacted coolly. "Lebanon
will not negotiate with Israel over the
withdrawal," President Elias Hrawi said
during a visit to the United Arab
But Secretary of State Madeleine
Albright was instantly receptive.
"We welcome the decision by the
Israeli Cabinet, "she said. "This is a po'-
While the United States would like to
see a wider Arab-Israeli settlement that
involved Syria, "we understand the
value of making progress where we
can," she said.
Tobacco bill clears
WASHINGTON - The Senate
Commerce Committee voted over-
whelmingly yesterday to establish the
nation's first comprehensive tobacco
policy, a tough measure that aims to
reduce youth smoking through steep cig-
arette price increases and harsh rests
tions on sales and marketing.
The 19 to 1 vote represented a major
step forward in resolving an onslaught of
lawsuits against the embattled industry
and tackle the nation's leading cause of
preventable death. It was the first action
by Congress since the opposing factions
in the country's fight over tobacco signed
an unprecedented agreement last June.,

Yeltsin to gather
support for nominee
MOSCOW -- President Boris Yeltsin
sumnioned parliamentary leaders to
attend talks at a guest lodge outside of
Moscow today in an effort to assuage
opposition to his nomination of Sergei
Kiriyenko as Russia's next prime minister.
The lower house of parliament, the
State Duma, which is doniinated by
Commuiists and nationalists, was on the
verge yesterday of asking Yeltsin to sus-
pend the nomination and hold a negotiat-
ing session with legislators, a "round
table," so they could air their criticism.
But the chamber backed off after
Yeltsin's press secretary, Sergei
Yastrzhembsky, announced that Yeltsin
had invited Duna speaker Gennady
Seleznev; Yegor Stroyev, chief of the
Federation Council, parliament's upper
chamber; and Kiriyenko, who is now act-
ing prime minister, to talks at the estate,
Rus, outside of the capital.
Parliamentary leaders have been jock-
eying for leverage over the Kremlin ever
since Yeltsin nominated Kiriyenko last
week. The Communists have criticized
Kiriyenko as too inexperienced, but have
not entirely ruled out voting for him. .
The Duma has few powers under
Russia's 1993 constitution, which creat-
ed a strong presidential system, but it
must vote on the prime minister's nori
nation. If it rejects it three times, Yeltsin
can dissolve parliament and call for new
message of equality
KABUL, Afghanistan - Wearing an
ankle-length coat and a scarf over h
head, the head of UN ICEF appealed yr
terday to the hard-line Taliban religious
army to guarantee the safety of U.N. staff
in Afghanistan and give men and women
there equal access to U.N. programs.
Carol Bellamy's meeting with
President Mullah Mohammedl Rabbani
marked the first time the Islamic move-
ment has held direct talks with a woman
since it seized control of 85 percent of the
country in 1996 and imposed its strict
interpretation of Islamic law.
