Three men wearing battle fatigues
and carrying Uzi machine guns goose
stepped across the Pit yesterday about
noon and forcefully carried away a
woman making a speech against the
Sandinista government of Nicaragua.
The machine guns were plastic,
however, and the incident was planned
by Students for America to protest the
Campus Governing Council's resolu
tion for contingency plans in the event
of a U.S. invasion of Nicaragua, said
Dave Fazio, chairman of the UNC
chapter of SFA. About 50-60 students
gathered in the Pit to watch the event.
"We wanted to show the students
what happens in Nicaragua if you speak
out against the government," he said.
Fazio, a senior from Indian Trail,
said the CGC was dominated by
"campus liberals" who only gave one
side of the issue.
Ralph Reed, SFA national executive
director, agreed, calling the Human
Rights Week held here last week "a
joke" because human rights violations
by the Sandinistas were not mentioned.
Reed said these included death squads,
the expulsion of priests speaking in
opposition to the government, the
closing of opposition newspapers and
the forced relocation of Meskito Indians
to re-education camps that Reed called
Denise Long, who was "abducted"
during her speech in the Pit, said, "The
Sandinistas are not upholding demo

state-supported institution "had no
right . . . turning against America that
way" and putting the University's name
He said that while he thought the
CGC should not have addressed the
Nicaraguan controversy at all, he would
have preferred the question to be put
to the student body iYi a referendum.
Long, a freshman from Jacksonville,
said in her speech, "We elected Campus
Governing Council members to govern
our campus, not to spit on our flag and
criticize our nation."
Fazio added, "We need to get (Stu

were considering running for CGC
positions this spring.

into "a trumped-up body to judge every

a lot of students."
PiKA 's Beat Dook parade
raises spirit before game
By WAYNE GRIMSLEY
Former UNC All-Conference defen
sive back and punter Steve Streater and
members of campus fraternities and
sororities will travel through campus
today in the 51st annual Pi Kappa
Alpha Beat Dook parade starting at 3
Streater will be grand marshal of the
event, said Pi Kappa Alpha member
The parade begins in front of Car
michael Auditorium and moves up
Raleigh Street. The marchers will then
turn right on Franklin Street and finish
at the PiKA house on Fraternity Court,
"We wish to promote school spirit
with this intense rivalry," he said.

"I think they would've been better

Neither Fazio, Reed nor Long said
they foresaw an invasion of Nicaragua
by the United States.
Long said, "The Sandinistas use that
as propaganda aginst the United States"
to get support for their government. She
said the Sandinistas had been warning
of a U.S. invasion since 1982.
Fazio said, "There's no sense in us
going in there if their own people are
"I do think if the Sandinistas start
increasing terrorism in other countries,
the United States should do something,"
but not necessarily invade Nicaragua
itself, he said.
Long added that the only justification
for direct military conflict would be an
open threat by Nicaragua to its neigh
bors or U.S. interests such as the
Panama Canal. .
Fazio and Long both said they
supported the Contras fighting to
overthrow the Sandinista government
but said they also saw a possibility of
resolving the conflict by negotiations.
"The Sandinistas have so much
support from the Soviet bloc ... I don't
know if negotiations could help . . . but
it would be better than war," Long said,
adding that the Soviet Union had given
Central America about $5 billion in
military aid since 1979.
.. Fazio said the Contras wanted "the
same things the Sandinistas originally
wanted," including free speech, freedom
of the press and freedom of religion.
But right now the Sandinistas won't
cooperate with the people," he said.
"The United State should continue
supporting (the Contras) even if some
of the things they do are unethical" until
the Sandinistas show a willingness to
negotiate on democratic terms.
SFA contacted television stations
and newspapers about the skit and
staged it a second time in the Student
Union gallery for TV cameras that
