Students fast to protest
board's divestment policy
By RON CRAWFORD
Members of Action Against
Apartheid ended an eight-day fast
on May 15 after the UNC Board
of Endowment announced its
intent to create a committee to
examine the University's position
The student activist group
began the fast on May 8 to draw
attention to the issue of apartheid.
AAA also wanted to encourage
the BOE to divest University funds
from companies with holdings in
Three students fasted the entire .
eight days until the BOE's meeting
on May 15, AAA member Dale
McKinley said Sunday.
Members of AAA confronted
S. Bobo Tanner, chairman of the
BOE, before the board's meeting
and asked him to discuss divest
ment with the board at the meet-
m mm MIt-mm mm mIowImo
ing. The group also asked that a
faculty council proposal calling for
divestment be discussed at the
meeting, McKinley said.
About $5.6 million of UNCs
endowment is invested in compan
ies that operate in South Africa.
After meeting with the board in
private, Tanner proposed to the
AAA that a committee be formed
to study apartheid, and the group
announced the end of the fast.
The idea for the committee
came from Student Body Presi
dent Brian Bailey. "(Vice
Chancellor and Dean of Student
Affairs) Don Boulton and I had
spoken about it earlier and I
proposed to Mr. Tanner that we
create a committee formed from
the different parts of the Univer
sity,w Bailey said Tuesday.
Bailey said the committee's
purpose will be to "talk about
apartheid and possible solutions
and possible steps the University
McKinley suggested the com
mittee be composed of students,
faculty, trustees, and staff
members, with three representa
tives from each group. McKinley
also requested that the committee
be formed before the next Board
of Trustees meeting in June, and
that it make its proposals before
the next BOE meeting in August.
Bailey said his ideas for the
composition of the committee
were similar to McKinley 's. He
said he'd like the committee to
include members of the adminis
tration and "representatives of big
contributors" to UNC.
The times the committee will
meet and make its proposals have
not been set, Bailey said.
