An interfaith peace walk, seeking to prevent war with Iraq, that has been traveling across Massachusetts, passed through Boston on September 6.

The policy of the University of Haifa seeks to end Palestinian student political activism
on campus. This policy will continue unless massive protest persuades the University
that it is unacceptable for an institution of Higher Learning. We therefore call on members

suppression of political activities of Arab students at the University of Haifa and demand
that the University revoke the suspensions imposed on the student activists and respect
students' basic democratic right to express their political views.
