LSA graduate Pam Nadasen of the United Coalition
Against Racism said, "The situation in El Salvador is
a good example of the racist foreign policy the U.S.
carries out. American tax dollars are being used to
quell dissent and protest and exploit large numbers of
Nadasen said she would like to see U.S. foreign
policy support humanitarian values and self determina-
tion rather than oppressive dictators like Cristiani. She
said the situation in El Salvador is similar to the situa-
tions in the Middle East and South Africa.
"As Americans, we have to stand up for the rights
of people of color in other countries as well as here in
the U.S.," Nadasen said.
Graduate student Ira Leifer said he came to the
protest because he felt the elections in El Salvador
should not be respected since the majority of people
didn't vote.
"I am opposed to my tax dollars supporting their
(ARENA's) violations of human rights," said Leifer.
The protestors also carried posters and banners de-

nouncing U.S. intervention in El Salvador. One poster
said, "Domino's delivers for the CIA and the Contras."
"Tom Monaghan funds a lot of right wing colle-
giate organizations which establish small exclusive
universities in El Salvador," said Rubio.
One of the protestors, John Zettner of the Michigan
Interfaith Committee on Central American Human
Rights, layed on the ground in front of the Federal
Building with his eyes covered and his thumbs tied be-
hind his back, symbolizing ARENA death squad vic-
Zettner said the white hand imprint on his T-shirt
was symbolic of a form of communication in El
"If you find an imprint on any of your possessions,
the party (ARENA) is telling you that you're a death
squad target," said Zettner.
Zettner said one of the police officers tried to make
him move, but gave up when Zettner ignored her.
The Detroit protest was organized by CASC,
MICAH, Latin American Solidarity Committee and
Witness for Peace and Justice in Southeastern

Protesters convicted
The trial for two University students arrested while protesting the
inauguration of James Duderstadt ended last Friday with both being
convicted of disturbing the peace.
Mike Fischer and Sandra Steingraber, both Ph.D. candidates, are
scheduled to hear their sentencing on June 20. The maximum penalty
for disturbing the peace is 90 days in jail and a $100 fine.
Steingraber was acquitted of an assault and battery charge.
"It's far more a disturbance of the peace that the president does re-
search for the military than our skit (at the inauguration) was," said
Fischer suggested that the jury was misled by the prosecution's defi-
nition of disturbing the peace, as it "was an interpretation of disturbing
the peace from a conservative law book," he said.
'U' Council extended
The University's Board of Regents extended the existence of the
University Council to December, in a 6-1 decision at their meeting last
The Council, which was created under the regents' 7.02 bylaw, con-
sists of students, faculty, and administrators who propose conduct rules
for the University. It dissolved last year after disagreements between
Council members and reconvened last February under new guidelines.
Regulations concerning free speech are issues the Council has hotly
debated throughout the year.
"We'll continue to work on implementation of the guidelines on free
speech and protest and draft revisions of bylaw 7.02," said council
member and Rackham graduate student Corey Dolgan.
Deane Baker, the sole Regent against the extension, suggested that
the entire bylaw is useless.
"The decisions that the Council is called upon to make can be made
by regents," said Baker. "It's a diminution of the Regents' authority."
Worker pursues grievance
Today Blane McLane, a staff member and graduate from the
University, will meet wit the University Task Force on Sexual
Orientation regarding a complaint he filed last October.
McLane said he was harassed by campus security because he is a gay
male. He said the University has done nothing in response, despite the
policy the administration has put forward to protect against discrimina-
tion on the basis of sexual orientation.
University officials involved in the incident refused to comment.
