Transcript UH Delegation Goes To DC Money For Jobs — Not For War . . . A delegation of eight UH students and faculty members went to Washington, D.C. during the last weekend of April to participate in the biggest domestic demonstration against U.S. foreign policy since the Viet Nam war. More than 100,000 people showed up for the march and rally which were the high point of the Mobilization for Justice and Peace in Central American and Southern Africa, April 1987. The group assembled on the Ellipse, a large oval of manicured grass between the Washington Monument and the White House. Beneath gray skies, they lis tened to speakers for labor and religious organizations. They listened to a politician or two. And they listened to advocates for gays and lesbians, native americans, senior citizens, the homeless, Central Americans, black South Africans, Middle East Peace, and democracy in the Phillipines. There was music too. Bands from Africa and Latin America. But the sound that most captivated the crowd of old, young, middle-aged, black, white and brown people was the music of Peter, Paul and Mary. Music that was written in the sixties, for a movement that was trying to end a war. The crowd seemed to know all the words, and the rain did not dampen their singing, or their spirits. As the music ended, people looked for their place in line. They were ready to march. Religious and labor groups led the way, followed by student and peace groups. They marched out of the Ellipse, around the White House and down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capital. If you stood and watched the marchers go by, you would have been there for over an hour. You would have seen thousands of signs and banners from all over the nation, and Continued Students and faculty were among the more than 100,000 demonstrators calling for public awareness of the issues in Central America and South Africa.
