Transcript Supporting Democracy Students march at Chinese Embassy Some 80 university students gathered in the University Center to discuss organizing a committee to assist the pro-democracy students in Mainland China. The meeting was sponsored by the Friendship Association of Chinese students and Scholars (FACSS). Chunshou Xia, a graduate student in geology said it was important for their local organization to lead the students. The meeting began with a moment of silence in "honor of those who have died for the freedom in China." Emotions ran high as students debated excitedly about whether to form a separate committee or continue operating under FACSS. It was decided the committee would be a political one, and the committee should not be affiliated with the FACSS. The majority of the students at the meeting were exchange students who were attending UH on schol- EMOTIONAL RESPONSE-A protestor watches the march from a distance.

"We must have a new name for the committee to disassociate ourselves from the Chinese government," Xiaobo Kan, a graduate student in physics, said. This, Kan said, would protect the Chinese students who participated in the committee upon their return to China. The resolution was passed and seven representatives were elected to head the new committee, which had not yet been named. The students discussed different ways to inform the Chinese people outside Beijing. Susanna Wong, a graduate student in biology, said she had already begun. "I joined the protest march at the Chinese embassy and I wrote a letter to China," she said. "I called family and friends in Hong Kong and asked them to call people in China." It was decided that money needed to be raised and sent to China to "help bury the dead" and assist the Chinese people to avoid further massacres. A letter from the Chinese government published in Beijing to the Chinese group was read. In the letter, students and protesters were accused of stealing, burning cars and killing soliders. No mention was made of the number of students killed. UH Chinese students have written a letter to the US governement professing their anger at the brutality of the Chinese army and grief at the loss of lives of peaceful demonstrators. "At night, when I close my eyes, I can see all these pictures from TV in my mind and I can not sleep," Wong said. "I am lucky to have freedom of education. In China, there is no freedom and I feel I have the respon- siblity to go back there and serve my people." -Susan Dillard 32 RE lssues iPE
