By LACY CHURCHILL
Claiming that the CIA supports
illegal activities, members of the CIA
Action Committee held a rally in the
Pit Tuesday to protest the CIA's Feb.
25 recruitment visit.
"We are attempting to expose the
crimes of the CIA," said Dale McKin
ley, a committee member. "The CIA
is totally out of control."
Committee supporters held signs
that read, "Criminals In Action" and
"Thou Shalt Not Kill."
Steve Sullivan, one of four com
mittee members fasting to protest the
recruitment visit, spoke at the rally
on the definition of the word "right,"
which does not apply to the CIA,
"We (students) have the right to
a CIA-free campus," Sullivan said.
"There's not a just bone in their (the
CIA's) collective body."

the election's outcome.
"So many people who had not

went by DTH endorsements,"
Zellmer said. "Not many of the

Voters oppose CGLA fundin
By BRIAN McCOLLUM
Student activities fees should not
be used to fund the Carolina Gay and
Lesbian Association (CGLA), a
majority of students voted Tuesday.
According to the unofficial results
of a non-binding referendum, 58
percent of student voters .were against
using student activities fees to fund
the group. The referendum was used
solely to gauge student opinion.
Unofficial tallies this morning
showed that 3,195 students voted
against the funding, while 2,285 voted
in favor of it.
David McNeill, a Student Con
gress representative who worked to
place the referendum on Tuesday's
ballot, said he hopes the results will
send a signal to government officials.
"With the way the figures are now,
Student Congress should wake up
and smell the coffee," he said.
"Students don't want their fees going
to the CGLA.
"My faith in the democratic process
has been strengthened. We the stu
dents have spoken."

Suggs said the fact that over 70
percent of the student body did not
participate in Tuesday's elections
proves the funding issue is not as big
as many students thought.
"There's a certain amount of
apathy towards the issue of CGLA
funding," he said.
Rob Friedman, speaker for the
congress, said the congress will not
officially address the issue until
budget hearings in early April. He
said that although he cannot predict
exactly how the congress will act,
support for CGLA funding will
probably remain strong.
