Activism and education

Michigan Helping Hands, a
new campus organization that
promotes education and activ-
ism on social issues affecting
Michigan and the United States,
is working daily to inform local
communities about prevalent
issues like homelessness, poverty
and hunger.
Founded by LSA freshmen
Joshua Kleiman and Alex Lieber-
man, the duo said they were
inspired to create the group dur-
ing high school, and decided to
bring the idea to campus this
year. Creating an organization
was their method of stimulat-
ing student involvement to com-
bat issues in the community and
inspire change, they said.

"Michigan Helping Hands has
three goals - spreading aware-
ness, raising money and involve-
ment," Kleiman said.
Each year, members will learn
about various issues and vote on a
topic to pursue in depth over the
course of the year. Kleiman and
Lieberman said they will encour-
age students at the University
to participate in volunteer trips,
fundraisers and a host of other
activities, adding that they hope
to influence students on other
college campuses as well.
"Everyone has a voice and
there are opportunities to learn
about everything, even (for)
members (of the group)," Klei-
man said.

Lieberman said the group
emphasizes an important set
of values and skills that can be
applied to various areas in life.
For the upcoming fall semes-
ter, both Kleiman and Lieberman
said they hope to remain active
in the group, increase their mem-
bership at Festifall and encour-
age others to engage in social
issues and events.
Amid inevitable challenges in
gaining members and receiving
administrative support, Lieber-
man emphasized the group's
devotion to rallying communal
involvement and funding chari-
table events that students are
truly compassionate about.

Syrian government defiant

U.S. begins
negotiating U.N.
resolution with
Russia and China
BEIRUT (AP) - Syria's presi-
dent defied mounting inter-
national pressure to end the
year-old crackdown on an upris-
ing against him and said yester-
day le was determined to go on
fighting what he called "foreign-
backed terrorism."
After a powerful American
senator called for airstrikes on
Syria, President Barack Obama
said unilateral U.S. military

action against President Bashar
Assad's regime would be a mis-
take.
The United States said it is
proposing a new United Nations
Security Council resolution
demanding an end to violence in
Syria, first by government forces
and then by opposition fight-
ers. Russia and China, powerful
allies that have blocked a Secu-
rity Council resolution against
Syria, made clear they were
still standing by the regime in
Damascus.
"The Syrian people, who have
in the past managed to crush
foreign plots, ... have again prov-
en their ability to defend the
nation and to build a new Syria

agency "That wasn't very respectful

a prov- certing," Nebel said.
egan a Nebel said the meeting failed
village to produce effective ideas to

"It was productive in that I

ROMNEY
From Page 1A
night had been "convincingly
won by Romney." He said that
while Romney - who has main-
tained a substantial lead in the
delegate count from the start of
the GOP race - may not appeal to
the whole Republican Party, he is
the party's best candidate and is
now the clear frontrunner.
"Super Tuesday looks a lot like
what we've been seeing for the
last two months, which is Rom-
neyis not lovedby the Republican
Party but he is winning," Heany
said.
In Ohio, where Romney and
Santorum exchanged leads for
most of the night, Romney's nar-
row victory was hailed as a key
triumph over Santorum in a bat-
tleground state.
However, since Heaney said
Santorum was not eligible for del-
CH egates in some parts of the state
for legal reasons, he said Rom-
ney would win most of the state's
delegates, a fact more important
than either candidate winning
the popular vote.
"One candidate might win by
one percent, but Romney's going
to get the most delegates in Ohio

was effective in fostering discus-
sion on corruption in the work-
force.
"I think we got our point
across," he said. "I thinkwe dem-
onstrated that we understood
the issue and that we weren't just
goingto let it slide."
During the discussion, Nebel
and Shattuck disagreed over
what Adidas owed the affected
workers.
"We are morally taking on our
obligations," Nebel said. "You
guys are pulling out one thing
that is strictly the severance.
You're not looking at everything
else that's happening."
Shattuck disagreed, argu-
ing that severance is crucial to
understanding the issue.
Nebel said Adidas supports
the workers being paid their sev-
erance, but that ultimately PT
Kizone, not Adidas, is respon-
no matter who wins the popu-
lar vote," he said in an interview
last night, before Romney was
declared the winner early this
morning.
Though Romney won convinc-
ingly in Massachusetts and Vir-
ginia, Santorum fared well in the
southern states. Ken Kollman,
a professor of political science,
said Santorum's performance in
the South is a sign of the ongo-
ing search for an alternative to
Romney and of Santorum's abil-
ity to maintain momentum in
the race.
"I think Santorum is keeping
himself in the race, and it's a vic-
tory that he is the main alterna-
tive to Romney," Kollman said.
"He's going to stay in the race
for a long time, but he can't seem
to do a knockout punch."
Despite Santorum's persever-
ance, Kollman said Santorum's
persistent deficit in the delegate
count could become trouble-
some for him as Romney contin-
ues to accumulate delegates in
each subsequent primary.
"This is ultimately a race
about getting seats at the con-
vention," Kollman said. "He's
winning those, and he's got an
advantage there."
LSA junior Brian Koziara,

sible for the severance. He added
that since the factory's closure,
approximately 300 of the work-
ers have been rehired by other
Adidas suppliers and 950 total
have been reemployed. He noted
that Adidas is working on finding
jobs for the other workers with-
out jobs.
"(Adidas) funded an initiative
that is helping on out-place- *
ment services and occupational
training for the entrenched
workers," Nebel said. "They're
helping them find jobs, they're
helping them with training
opportunities."
Nebel also met with Universi-
ty President Mary Sue Coleman's
Advisory Committee on Labor
Standards and Human Rights
earlier in the morning. Shattuck,
who is a member of the commit-
tee also attended the meeting as
well.
external vice chair of the Uni-
versity's chapter of the Col-
lege Republicans, agreed with
Heaney that Super Tuesday was
a success for Romney because he
continued to add to his lead in
the delegate count. Koziara said
Romney's five wins re-estab-
lished him as the frontrunner in
the Republican race.
"Now that we're actually get-
ting into the contested part of
this, it's become all about the
delegates - who can actually
win the delegates," he said. "And
in that regard, Romney won the
night."
Even in states where San-
torum earned the majority of
delegates and the popular vote,
Koziara said the successes were
only "technically" wins for San-
torum because in every state,
except Georgia and Tennessee,
Romney gained a significant
portion of the delegates.
"I think for Santorum it's a lit-
tle bit of a hollow victory," Kozi-
ara said. "Technically he won
three states - pending results
in Alaska - but what Santo-
rum needs to do is not just win
states; he needs to stop Romney
from amassing delegates. And
he wasn't able to do that this eve-
ning."
