are homeless and without running

The second proposal considered
was "Resolution to Call for Peace in
Gaza and Israel," authored by LSA
Reps. Gibran Baydoun, Andrew
Chinsky, Ian Margolis and Cassie
Feldman, MSA Chief of Staff Ashley
Schwedt and Business Rep. Jason
At around 12:15 a.m. last night,
after five hours of community input
and discussion, the amendment
"The Michigan Student Assembly
mourns all death and deeply wants
the violence to stop for the sake of the
and supports humanitarian efforts
and peace," the resolution stated.
The resolution called for the reso-
lution's authors and MSA executives
to work with the American Move-
ment for Israel and Students Allied
for Freedom and Equality to plan a
screening of a documentary about
the sisterhood of six Arab and six
Jewish women entitled "Refusing to
be Enemies: the Zeitouna Story."
It also called for a copy of the
resolution and a letter including the
details of the screening to be sent to
The Michigan Daily, The Ann Arbor
News and the Detroit Free Press.

Area Association, said that once
vandals see graffiti on a property in
a certain area, they are more likely to
deface other properties in that area.
"If someone sees graffiti, they
assume that there aren't enough
eyes on it so it somewhat grows
from there," he said.
The purpose of the ordinance
was not to penalize people who are
The decisionto still consider a res-
olution concerning an international
conflict that is currently in the midst
of a cease-fire was addressed by
several members of MSA last night.
They said that since they believe the
situation continues to be a humani-
tarian crisis, the proposal is still
relevant. Additionally, they said that
the Middle East conflict in general is
a controversial issue that many stu-
dents care about and thus should be
taken up by the assembly.
Much of the sentiment from the
previous week's meetingwas echoed
last night, including passionate dis-
course on both sides of the issue.
Several people present at the
meeting argued that the proposal
was a means of helping those in need
during a time of humanitarian crisis.
"I'm a Palestinian, I'm a Jew,
I'm a Christian, I'm a person, I'm
a human," community member
Husan Ahmad said. "The thing here
is we have a matter that touched
not only Palestinian, but it touched
Christian, Jew, Hispanic; it touched
everybody in the world. The prob-
lem here we are facing is not Jewish,
it is Zionist."
Others argued that the resolu-
tion was one-sided and did not pres-
ent enough information about the
attacks on Israel leading up to its
campaign in Gaza.
"It makes no mention of Hamas
or what's going on in southern Isra-

night's MSA meeting about the assembly's resolution regarding the Gaza conflict.
el or that over a million Israelis are
living within range of rocket fire,"
Chinsky said. "If we want to get a
more balanced resolution, that's
something we can talk about in the
future, you don't have to be pro-Pal-
estinian or pro-Israeli to do that."
The issue of whether or not it is
appropriate for MSA to pass a reso-
lution about an international con-
flict was also apoint of much debate
LSA-SG Rep. Adam London, who
is not a member of MSA, said that as
a student government representative
himself, he does not think it is within
the assembly's parameters to pass an
amendment on such a global issue.
"We have a large view, and it's
important that what you say and the
actions you take should represent
those who voted for you," he said.
"Know when it's right not to get
involved in something that is really
more of an international concern."
Stenvig disagreed with London,
arguing that a student government
hasthe responsibility totake stances
on issues that many University stu-
dents are concerned with regardless
of their locality.
"To take a position as a group of
leaders that is elected is a tangible
thing that has an impact," Sten-
vig said. "We're not future leaders;
we're leaders today already, and we
have a responsibility to take posi-
tions like this."

Andrea Jones, president of
the University's chapter of the
NAACP, said the trip to D.C. made
Obama's historic election seem
"It was a moving experience,"
she said. "It makes me more hope-
ful for the next four years."
Jones said that despite her
group's early arrival, the city was
already crowded when she arrived
"We were there at 4:30 a.m. and
the streets were already getting
packed," she said.
In Ann Arbor, students, faculty
and other members of the Univer-
sity community gathered at sev-
eral watch parties around campus
to share in the historic event.
There was standing room
only at the Union Ballroom
where approximately 150 stu-
dents gathered to watch the
Throughout the ceremony,
the room was quiet, but students
stood to cheer and applaud Obama
when he was sworn in. When out-
going President George W. Bush
was shown on television, several
people in attendance snickered
and laughed at him.
LSA sophomore Mitch Crispell,
who watched the inauguration
from the Union, skipped class to
witness the event.
"My parents told me to go to
class," he said. "But I said ifI went
to class I would regret it for the
rest of my life and I really should
be in a place where I can be cel-
ebrating an incredible landmark."
Engineering senior Ashley Issa,
in the Union, said she was excited
by the inauguration and thinks
Obama will be more responsive to
the American people.
"It's really one of our great
events in history," she said. "I see
him as someone who can better
represent all the different voices
that there are inthe US."
Across campus, a group of stu-
dents and faculty filled the Busi-
ness School's recently constructed
Blau Auditorium to watch Obama's
LSA junior Katherine Nasz-
radi, who watched the event in
the Business School, said words
couldn't describe how she felt.
"It's just so incredible," she
said. "It feels like a new era."
Business senior Elise Hutchin-
son, said she decided to watch the
inauguration from Blau Auditori-
um after her professor ended class
"Our teacher let us out of class,
because it's something he defi-
nitely didn't want us to miss," she
Pharmacy freshman Chris
Truong said watching the event
made him proud of the country we
live in today and ready to tackle
the troubles we currently face.
"It is something that all Ameri-
cans should be proud of," he said.
"Even though we have a lot of
problems today, a lot of work can
be done if we start it together."
LSA freshman Justin Schon,
who watched with other members
of the Honor's College commu-
nity in their Mason Hall commons
area, said he was impressed by
"I thought it was a fantastic
speech," he said. "He hit on all
the points that he should have
hit on and I was particularly
impressed that one of the first
words he said was the word
'humble,' which is a word I
would like to hear the president
say more often."

In fact, the new ordinance
was scaled back from its original
draft presented to City Council in
December, which included a fine
of up to $500 for property owners
who didn't remove graffiti within
two to four days of discovering the
Business owners felt the fine was
too harsh and that property owners
were targeted too heavily.
"The revision is much better in
how it relates the original intent of
the ordinance to people," Clark said.
At the meeting, concerns were
raised by Ann Arbor residents that
the ordinance prioritized graffiti
removal in the city, which isn't worth
fighting with taxpayer money.
But City Council members said
that they remained confident that
the ordinance would be successful
in decreasing graffiti within the
city and proud of the collaboration
of many different city organiza-
Council member Margie Teall,
the senior sponsor of the proposal,
said that the 90-day window before
the ordinance takes effect will be
