'lin' '-'-s- s l AP Photo Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi stands with arms crossed during a press conference after the U.S. and Libya clashed in the Mediterranean Sea. A merican and Libyan forces clashed in the disputed waters off the Libyan coast on March 25. The incident began in the Gulf of Si- dra after Libyan ground forces fired six missiles at American planes conducting maneuvers in the Mediterranean Sea. ln retaliation, American forces fired at two Libyan vessels and a missile site on Libyan soil. One vessel was set afire and seen dead in the water. The other was se- verely damaged. The missile site was reported to be "out of action." According to subsequent informa- tion, no American planes or vessels were damaged, although Libyan radio reported that three American planes had been shot down. The fighting occurred after three American ships crossed Col. Muammar el-Kadafi's "line of death," which is set at 100 miles from the Libyan shoreline. The U.S. and other countries, however, recognize only a 12-mile offshore belt as Libyan territory. ' According to Reagan administration officials, the American vessels were conducting peaceful ,maneuvers in the gulf to stress the legal point that be- yond the 12-mile limit, the Gulf of Sidra belongs to no one. Two days later, on March 26, Ameri- can forces fired at and destroyed two more Libyan ships and a missile site on the coast. According to American offi- cials, the attack was in response to hostile Libyan intent and not an actual attack. At the same time, Kadafi Cwhom the U.S. has accused of sponsoring terror- ist activitiesi stated that he was pre- ared for war with the United States. . The Contras, the guerrillas fighting in Central America to overthrow the Nicaraguan government, are winning and growing because of the Nicara- guan people's support, according to a spokesman for the group. Jorge Rosales, assistant to the press secretary for the Nicaraguan forces, spoke to a capacity crowd in the Stu- dent Union Ballroom on March 31. He outlined the last seven year's events that have led to the "betrayal of the Nicaraguan revolution," saying that the Soviet Union has been supplying the Sandinista government with weap- ons and supplies that are threatening the Contra's fight for democracy. He went on to say that it is important for the United States to support the Contras because of Nicaragua's prox- imity to the United States. The speech ended, after about 75 minutes due to a "violent crowd" out- side ofthe SUB. Earlier that same day, two rallies were held on both sides of the Student Union. ln the first rally, about 150 people expressed their support for President Ronald Reagan's proposal for S100 million in military and humanitarian aid to the Contras. "These people fthe Contrasi want to fight like the founding fathers fought," said Lynne McCabe, a senator from Sylvan. "Our duty is to ensure democ- racy." At the same time, about 300 stu- dents near the campus pond listened to speakers and singers who opposed the presence of Contras at UMass. Students at the rally dressed in green army fatigues and cheered loud- ly as speakers denounced Reagan's Nicaraguan policy. At one point, an ad-hoc coalition of students erected a graveyard next to the campus pond with 59 crosses bear- ing the names of Nicaraguans report- edly slain by the Contras. ln addition, speakers described methods of killing, saying that men have been "shot in the head," and "cut up with a knife." After weeks of controversy, the Un- dergraduate Student Senate passed the fiscal year 1987 Student Govern- ment Association budget on March 12 by a roll call vote of 34-19. According to the new budget, 37 reg- istered student organizations received funding cuts, 14 lost all funding, while 17 received increases. The proposal al- located S8-4,243.73 for RSOs on cam- pus. "Political" organizations, such as the Republican Club, the Peacemak- ers, and the Radical Student Union were not funded because they report- edly can solicit funds of their own. Also, Drum magazine was not funded be- cause the budget committee believed the magazine was linked to a class. Among the organizations that did re- ceive funding were: Abilities Unlimited, AHORA, Nummo News, Spectrum, and WMUA. l John MacMillan K M- 0' l 1 73,0 rf Photo by Karen Zarrow UMass students gather to protest the presence of Contras on campus. The visit by the Contra spokesmen sparked days of controversy, with reports of violence and one bomb threat making headlines.
