4. he United States conducted a se- ries of air raids on April 14 against 'What Washington called "terrorist cen- gters" in Libya. 55' The decision to go through with the ifattack came after President Reagan found "direct, precise, and irrefutable" .evidence that Libya was behind the tllipril 5 bombing of a West Berlin disco- iiheque that killed one American ser- Wiceman and a Turkish woman and in- Qured 200 others. According to the president, in a Espeech to the American public, Ameri- fifsan forces "succeeded in their mis- gsionn of retaliating against Col. Moam- ighar Kadafi's "reign of terror." Reports of the incident said five mili- fary bases, reportedly being used to , rain terrorists, were hit with American fmmunition during the raid. President eagan stated that efforts were made fi "minimize casualties among the Lib- an people." Subsequent reports, how- ' ver, indicated that civilian areas were amaged. Col. Kadafi's headquarters f nd home were hit by bombs and his gdopted daughter was reportedly killed the attack. . The fifteen American A-6planes that ere used in the attack were allowed o take off from an American base in ntaln but forced to fly around 5 The bombing began at approximate- i 7 p m. Eastern time when the planes lmultaneously struck two targets in enghazi a city on the Gulf of Sidra. he attack lasted a half hour. According to officials the bombings H ere conducted in the middle of the ight because the Libyan Air Force Des not fly at night. ' The attack against Libya met with me opposition from American citi- t ns and foreign allies namely France. rotests were held around the world ndemning Reagan s actions. ln one stance a firebornb was hurled at the 3 ited States Marine headquarters in msia.

Both received 530,000 and a Mercedes automobile. covered abnormally large amounts of radioactivity in the air and water. The severity of the accident was not immediately known .because Tass. the Soviet news agency, refused to dis- close anything more than short and vague statements about the incident. Later, in a second statement, it was revealed that the nuclear reactor ex- perienced a meltdown and that four settlements had been evacuated. The first Soviet statement on the number of deaths from the accident reported that two people had died. The United States and other countries criti- cized this staternent, saying that in an accident of such magnitude the death toll could reach into the thousands. Experts who studied the Chernobyl accident believe that the graphite core of the reactor caught fire and sent ra- dioactive material into the air. The nuclear cloud did not have a di- sastrous effect on the United States, but farmlands near Chernobyl may not be usable for several generations. The U.S. offered humanitarian aid to the Soviets, but faulted their technol- ogy. The Soviet Union uses graphite, a form of lead, to moderate nuclear re- actions, while the U.S. uses water as its primary coolant. A visit by anti-gay activist Paul Ca- meron on April .13 caused tempers to flare among UMass students and facul- ty and forced gay and lesbian students to protest the Whitmore Administra- tion Building for enforcement of the University's anti-discrimination clause. Surrounded by protesters and some supporters, Cameron told the crowd of approximately 300 people that civil rights should be stripped from homo- sexuals. "No one would deny that homosex- uals are human. It doesn't mean we have to give them special rights," said Cameron. Cameron, who is a psychologist and chairman of the Institute for the Scien- tific Investigation of Sexuality, a non- profit organization against gay rights, said that society has made a mistake by giving homosexuals the same liber- ties as heterosexuals. He' said that homosexuality is "worse than murder," and that homo- sexual activity is a "blight on society." Homosexuals and lesbians in the crowd wore T-shirts that read, "No Vio- lence." Campus .police kept the crowd peaceful during the speech, although Cameron was hit with two eggs thrown by demonstrators, Following the speech, approximately 250 students held a counter-rally at the Student Union to protest Camer- on's speech and to celebrate Gay and Lesbian Awareness Week. The demonstrators titled their rally, "An injury to one is an injury to all." Kevin Sweeney, a member of the University Democrats said, "lt is not just a cause for the issue of gay rights: it is a cause for humanity." The rally ended with the launching of a "wheel" made of crepe paper and helium balloons to symbolize the unifi- cation of all groups. ' John MacMillan April! 63
