Special interest
groups take
an interest in
GOP convention

By MAUREEN FLEMING

DETROIT-"We got the worst blues
anyone's gonna have-we got the GOP
blues," sang the Monster Slayer Band
yesterday at a rally sponsored by the
Citizens Reacting to a Sick Society.
The 5:30 p.m. rally, held at Kennedy
Square as the Republican National
Convention proceeded just a few blocks
away, featured several hundred in-
dividuals representing a menagerie of
special interests-some serious, some
off-the-wall, but all with a message.
JENNIFER DAVIS explained that
the group she belongs to-the Detroit
branch of the National Anti-Draft Net-
work-objected to the establishment of
draft registration.
"Never before have we had a draft
without a war soon following, and that's
why we're not fooled by registration for
the draft," she explained.
Michio Kaku explained he attended
the rally because of his long-lasting op-
position to nuclear power plants. The
nuclear physics teacher from the City
College of New York'said that one thing
the Nuclear Regulatory Commision
feared more than a meltdown was the

people are saying, "Shut them down!"
BRAD DAVIS, FROM. the
Revolutionary Socialist League, aimed
his vituperations at the Ku Klux Klan
and the Nazis. "We have to keep going
until they're destroyed and the stinking
capitalist system that let them rise to
power is destroyed."
Davis also urged everyone at the
rally to show up in Detroit when the
Klan and the Nazis march. "Death to
the Klan, Nazis, and capitalism," he
chanted to the crowd.
Maryann Frank, from a Detroit
feminist group, said there is more than
one type of rapist. Men who are opposed
to Medicaid abortions for the poor are
also rapists, she explained. Men who
take campaign contributions from
Phyllis Schafly and bosses who
sexually harrass their female em-
ployees are too, Frank added.
RETHA HILL, FROM the Detroit
chapter of the Committee Against
Registration and the Draft, said that
Reagan may now be opposed to
registration and the draft, but as soonas
be gets into office, be will not only be for
the draft but also for nuclear war. She
urged all 19- and 20-year-old men not to
