David Rosenberg, a member of
the AIDS Coalition to Unleash
Power (ACT-UP), said, "I think
that other alternatives like educa-
tion have to be explored. By ex-
pelling him, it does not really
change the situation."
The University policy includes
mandatory education as a possible

ing the deputizationsmovement as
an example of these tactics. He
said no one would have been ar-
rested at the sit-in, had the RWL
not been involved.
"By shouting 'Let's take the
building,' the RWL was able to
convince people to do it. All that
did was play into the University's
hands, so they could call the po-
lice," Dolgon said.
"We challenge leadership,"
Payne explained. "SRC had a bad
strategy and wasn't doing any-
thing."
Several campus leaders said
the RWL resorted to slanderous,
and even violent tactics when their
organization disagreed with RWL
opinions.
Rosenberg said RWL support-
ers tried to discredit ACT-UP after
the group no longer wanted to be
associated with the RWL.
"We had a vote and, based on
our coistitution, the RWL was ex-
pelled," Rosenberg said.
Following that, the RWL
passed out fliers to participants at

fied, the most drastic punishment
taken at the University under the
policy came during the 1988-89
school year, when a student's
diploma was withheld until certain
"conditions" requested by the per-
son who had been offended were
met.
Once a member of the Univer-
sity community files a formal
complaint of discriminatory mis-
conduct, the Student Discrimina-
tion Policy Administrator will con-
duct a preliminary investigation to
determine whether enough evi-
a Pride, Awareness, and Commit-
ment rally. The fliers claimed
ACT-UP was split into two more
and less radical factions.
Matthews said the RWL used
similar tactics against UCAR, af-
ter they asked RWL members to
leave the organization.
"The RWL handed out fliers (at
a Neo-Nazi counter-demonstration)
slandering UCAR and three Black
women in UCAR leadership,"
Matthews said. "They try to push
organizations into doing things
they are not ready to do."
Payne denied accusations that
the RWL intimidates other organi-
zations.
"All of these groups have bu-
reaucratic leaderships. They are all
united and don't want to lose their
grip on the group. They are afraid
of democratic leadership," he said.
More recently, RWL members
and supporters have been banned
from participating in SAUSI meet-
ings.
According to a SAUSI press re-
lease, the RWL was banned from
attending future meetings because
of their "blatant disregard for deci-
sions made by the majority vote,"

war groups, marched silently
through the Angell Hall Computing
Center, the Law Library, and the
Undergraduate Library.
Daniel Cohns, publicity chair
for SAUSI, said the possibility that
Allied forces were unaware that
civilians were inside the building
when the bombing took place is ir-
relevant.
"There are those that argue this
is a by-product of the war, and
that's correct. Civilians are going
to die and that's a fact of war,"
Cohns said. "However, their ac-
tions prove that Bush and Cheney
are indifferent to the Iraqi
population."

A hearing panel of four students

ing members of the SAUSI coali-
tion.
Payne admitted RWL members
may have acted out of line, but
that they had no choice.
"We were disruptive and rude,
but we felt we were forced to. W
would bring proposals forward, and
they would never come up," Payne
said.
RWL members said the charge
are simply an excuse to exclud
their ideologies from the SAUSI
agenda.
"Basically, there is leadership
in SAUSI that is most concerned
about maintaining their own poliii-
cal careers," Payne said. "They
kicked us out for our political be-
liefs - we're more left-wing. We
call for the victory of Iraq."
"We've got to build a move-
ment which has the capacity to
stop massive military action from
succeeding," said RWL supportr
Paul Green. "It's absolutely impos-
sible to do that unless we are open
to every political current with de-
bate and democracy."
the bombing represents a larger,
growing problem of moder4
warfare.
"I think this kind of warfare is
an atrocity. The bombing of civil-
ian targets has become common
practice," Kozura said.
The vigil was temporarily inter-
rupted when members of the Revo-
lutionary Workers League (RWL)
protested the pledge of silence be-
ing used in the march.
"Pacifism is not going to shtW
down the war. Silence isn't going
to do shit," said Paul, an RWL
member and University employee
who refused to give his last name.
Cohns believed that silence
was necessary during this particur
lar march because of the somber
event which inspired it. "Our main
focus is to bring an end to this
war," he added.
idents who rushed to the site found
an inferno. Rescue efforts pro
ceeded slowly, but by mid-morning
more than 40 charred bodies were
laid out on the ground, Ganguly
reported.
Ganguly said water containers
could be seen in the rubble, a sign
outside identified it as a bomll@
shelter, and the site was equippe
with loudspeakers that apparently
were air-raid alarms.
Ganguly said military radio traf"
fic had been detected coming from
the facility. Although originally
built as a civilian bomb shelter ir)

1985, during Iraq's war with Iran, it
had since been converted to mili-
tary use, and it became more ac4@
tive in the past two weeks, Neal
said. He said the roof recently was
painted in camouflage.

began about 8 p.m. Tuesday and
lasted 12 hours, Ganguly reported.
At about 4 a.m., the 40-foot-,
deep underground structure in al-
Amerieh, a middle-class neighbor-
hood, was hit.
Iraqi officials said 400 to 500
people had moved into the facility;
after the bombing began Jan. 17,
and hundreds more joined them
because this week's bombing was
particularly intense.
At least two weapons struck the
shelter, one slamming into the en-
trance and cutting off the lone es-
cape route with debris, the second
piercing the 9-foot-thick roof and
exploding inside the structure, the
Iraqis said.
