abducted and held captive in a house
for 12 hours while as many as 20 men
raped and beat her before she fled
naked, police said yesterday.

burning her with cigarettes while four
young boys watched but did not par-

Carrying banners that read
"Freedom for Nicaragua," and "Uncle
Sam - Hands off Central America,"
the Progressive Student Network
yesterday began a march to Detroit to
take part in a rally Saturday against
U.S. involvement in Central America.
There are more than 100 people who
are somehow affiliated with PSN, but
only six are participating in the march.
About 20 will join the pack by car on
Saturday at the rally site in Detroit.
Marchers explained that many people
aren't participating because of work
and other commitments.
THE MARCHERS contend that the
three-day walk will be a good time to
think about the situation in El Salvador
and Nicaragua, where the U.S. has
been supplying arms for the past few
"We'll sing, talk, and reflect on the
U.S.'s involvement in Central
America," said marcher Tom Marx.
