The Michigan Daily - Friday, January 18, 2002 - 7

The symposium started Jan. 14
and more than 65 MLK-related
events will take place before its Feb.
28th closing. Besides the keynote
lecture, parts of the symposium tak-
ing place on Monday include every-
thing from a children's program to a
lecture by Christopher Paul Curtis,
author of "The Watsons Go to Birm-
ingham - 1963" and "Bud, Not
"The Watsons" is a based-on-real-
life novel about a fictional black fami-
ly from Flint during the civil rights
movement, and is told through the
eyes of a 10-year-old.
Several student organizations are
sponsoring some of this year's events,
including Project SERVE, the Defend
Affirmative Action Party and the
Sigma Gamma Rho sorority.
Project SERVE will be holding its
annual MLK Day of Service, where
volunteers choose to work in a variety
of advocacy centers, as well as at
senior citizen homes and homeless

shelters. Students wanting to partici-
pate should arrive at the Chemistry
Building by 12:30 p.m.
"Anyone can participate and we
need more volunteers," said LSA
senior Megan Memmer, a member
of Project SERVE.
Students can also join members of
the Sigma Gamma Rho sorority at 2
p.m. Monday at the Michigan Union
(Room A) to make links for a peace
chain. The chain will be created out of
strip.s of construction paper, and par-
ticipants can decorate their paper how
they see fit.
Sigma Gamma Vice President
Layla Black, an LSA sophomore,
said she came up with the idea for
the peace chain from a project she
worked on in middle school. She
added that the idea stuck with her
and will hopefully stick around at
"With all the stuff that's happened
in the past year, and with all the ten-
sion, I thought it would be something
good for the University community,"
Black said."'Hopefully, if we can, we'd
like to make it a thing every year ...
just to show that the university can
come together for peace."
At noon, there will be a DAAP-
sponsored rally and march starting at
the corner of South University and
South Forest avenues.
"This year is really important.
We're building a new civil rights
movement, and the cases are going
to the Supreme Court. MLK day is
going to be a chance for us not only
to commemorate Martin Luther
King but to act on his dream," said
LSA sophomore Agnes Aleobua, a
member of DAAP.
Members of the Black Student
Union said they do not have any-
thing specific planned because hon-
oring King is not a one-day event.
"We celebrate MLK day every day,"
said BSU Treasurer Jarvis Williams,
an LSA junior. "Wedo things in the
name of MLK throughout the year."

for congressional candidates. In the 2000 Michigan Senate
race, the group collected over $1 million for Rep. Debbie
Stabenow for her successful challenge to incumbent Repub-
lican Spencer Abraham.
The group collects funds by sending out newsletters to its
members and informing them of the candidates it endorses.
It collects donations for the candidates, which it then "bun-
dles" and forwards to the candidates.
Rivers noted that she has a 100 percent pro-choice voting
record. According to Planned Parenthood, Dingell has a rat-
ing of 73 percent.
"He's voted repeatedly against reproductive rights
for women," she said.
Dingell's campaign manager, Lon Johnson, stressed
Dingell's experience, having served in Congress since
"The voters in this new district are going to look at edu-
cation, health care, the environment, and who has a longer
record of fighting for those causes and who will be better
positioned to fight those causes," he said.
Both campaigns, however, are involved in challenges
against the redistricting plan. Oral arguments are being
heard next week in the Michigan Supreme Court.
State law requires that legislative districts break the mini-
mal number of county and municipal boundaries. Democrats
argue that their redistricting plan is a better plan because it
breaks fewer county and municipal lines.
While the Republican plan puts three pairs of Demo-
cratic incumbents in the same district, including Rivers
and Dingell, the Democratic plan does not.
State Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer said if his
party does not prevail in the Supreme Court, where Repub-
lican-nominated justices hold a 5-2 majority, the party will
continue its case in U.S. District Court, alleging violations
of the Voting Rights Act.
"I hope we will be able to remain friends and not run
against each other," Rivers said.
The winner of the Aug. 6 primary is expected to pre-
vail in the Nov. 5 general election.
and income taxes, the rates of which decline by one-
tenth of one percent each year by law. This, they say,
would generate more revenue and allow for more wiggle
room for appropriations. But it is unclear whether such a
pause has enough support for passage, and the governor
"Everything's on the table and everything's open for, consid-
eration, and he'll look at all options to make sure that our bud-
get is balanced and to make sure Michigan is an economically
competitive state," Resch said.
While Schwarz and Sen. Alma Wheeler Smith (D-Salem
Twp.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Appropriations
Committee, have called for a temporary pause, the top
Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, Rep.
A.T. Frank of Saginaw, said for the moment he is against it.

"There's nothing sensitive here and they haven't
showed anything in what they would gain by keeping it
secret," Ahmed said.
Haddad's lead attorney, Ashraf Nubani, said that it is
hard to discuss what the next step for Haddad will be
because nothing is known yet. Nubani said that he has
yet to see a subpoena which demands Haddad's pres-
ence in Chicago.
Although he knew Haddad's exact location on Mon-
day, he was unable to speak to him until Wednesday.
"Pastor Haddad is under seal," Nubani said. "There is no
doubt that everything is sealed in this case, and the govern-
ment is not saying because they're doing things behind
closed doors. All this, for someone who hasn't been charged
for any crime within the United States."

"With the new regime, a little bit is
changed. But nobody is ready to go
back to Afghanistan," she said.
Another member of the panel,
Patrice Page, is a United Nations
liaison and program officer for
Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors
Without Borders), an organization
that administers medical aid in war-
Page described the current refugee
situation in Afghanistan and said
standards of humane warfare estab-
lished by the Geneva Convention
have at times been overlooked by the
"In this war in Afghanistan, the
political objectives were so important
we almost saw a denial of the human-
itarian issues," he said.
The coalition has allowed Pak-
istan, Iran, and other neighboring
countries of Afghanistan to close
their borders, Page said, explaining
that this violates the right of
refugees to seek asylum.
"I never heard official statements
from the U.S. or the U.K. condemning
Pakistan for not keeping an open bor-
der," he said.
In addition, Page took issue with
the similarity in appearance between
food drops and cluster bombs. Both
are colored yellow, and Page said
MSF has treated several children who
approached cluster bombs hoping for
Page said the war has added to the
problems caused by drought and
"It's not just since the 11th of Sep-
tember that Afghans have been trying
to cope with a difficult situation," he
Page added that the population is
susceptible to outbreaks of disease,
such as meningitis or cholera,
because of malnutrition and lack of
diversity in food dropped.
Disease and malnutrition are
prominent in the photos of a Pak-
istani refugee camp featured in a
new exhibit at the School of Social
The photos were taken by
refugees supplied with cameras by
a University alum, Serena
Chaudhry, who also moderated the
discussion panel, spent last summer
helping refugees in Pakistan on an
internship with the International
Catholic Migration Commission.
The photo exhibit will be on dis-
play through Jan. 31.

When developing their list of
desired qualifications, University
Regent Martin Taylor (D-Grosse
Pointe Farms) said the committee
took input from the University com-
munity into account.
"We asked the deans, executive offi-
cers and alumni of the University, it was
a collaborative type of criteria," Taylor
said. "People from the whole communi-
ty are all vitally interested in this ...
people stop you on the streets."
Taylor added that the committee
has developed a tentative calendar of
events and is on schedule to choose
the next president by their deadline
of June. The candidate must be able
to assume-their position for the 2002-
2003 academic year.
"We are working hard with the
consulting firm, we are on track and
making good time," said Regent
Rebecca McGowan (D-Ann Arbor).
The regents also approved fund-
ing for an addition to the Bentley
Historical Library, and Regent Lau-
rence Deitch (D-Bloomfield Hills)
advised the regents to'consider
looking into a renovation of the
President's House on South Univer-
"This seems to me to be a good time
to take a look at the function of the Pres-
ident's House. Let's do a survey on the
house to keep it fresh and important in
the life of campus," Deitch said.
Though he does entertain at the
house, White is not living in the offi-
