theme of developing a future gen-
eration of activists - highlight-
ing the use of social media among
America's youth in spreading social

Protesters march to Republican Gov. Rick Snyder's Ann Arbor subdivision yesterday to protest the state's emergency financial manager law.
P rotesters march to
fight Snyder policy

About 1,000
people walk to
governor's home
By TAYLOR WIZNER
Daily StaffReporter
Though Geddes Road is
usually filled with rush hour
traffic on 'Monday evenings,

last night it was packed
with protesters hailing from
all across Michigan, wav-
ing banners, flags and signs
reading, "Legalize democ-
racy," "Refuse to be silenced"
and "Dictator Snyder."
A crowd of about 1,000
people marched down Ged-
des to protest outside the
gated community where
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder

lives. The rally was in oppo-
sition of Public Act 4, a law
Snyder signed last March
that allows for an emergency
financial manager to tem-
porarily replace elected city
officials and take control
under instances of bank-
ruptcy.
Many people attended
the protest, held on Mar-
tin Luther King Jr. Day, to

support the importance of
democracy, making claims
that the policy is a threat to
the democratic system.
"Dr. King marched and
gave his life for the right to
vote," one megaphone yield-
ing protester chanted. "He
marched so that all Ameri-
cans can cast their vote. If we
cannot vote, we do not have

After reinstatement, Beta Theta
Pi continues to recruit, fill house

South State Street
residence open to
non-members
By LIANA ROSENBLOOM
Daily StaffReporter
Despite being only recently
reinstated on campus, Beta
Theta Pi fraternity is continu-
ing to increase membership and
residencyin theirhouse, located

at 604 S. State St.
Last fall, the newly reno-
vated fraternity house opened
its doors to members and non-
members in order to reach
capacity in the house. The fra-
ternity was re-established in
fall 2010 after its removal from
campus in 2007, and it's cur-
rently in the process of boosting
its membership.
Currently, 17 Beta members.
and 29 non-members, both
male and female, reside in the

Beta house-including law stu-
dents, graduate students and
other undergraduate students,
according to Martin Williams,
Beta ThetaPi resident director.
Kinesiology spnior Dustyn
Wright, current president of
Beta Theta Pi, said he doesn't
think the inability to fill the
house was a result of Beta's past
conflicts with its national orga-
nization. Instead, he attributed
it to the process of re-establish-
