Transcript War Taking a Stand 1 Junior business major Rodina Attaya listens to a speech in protest of vm the war. "I am against the war for sure, no * Mm blood for oil is my main i ^ concern. The media is ^H twisting facts and here the truth is crucial," Attaya said. Photo by Laura Moreno JM Freedom of Speech Senior political Science major Jose Bonilla exercises his freedom of speech in support of freedom. Bonilla spoke to advocate support for the war during the demonstration on campus. "There is no way that you can support the troops without supporting the war and Bush. The President is updated daily by the CIA, NSA, and FBI. The Bush Administration knows what to do better than we do. This is a war for security," Bonilla said.

The protest, was organized by a University of Houston professor and was co-sponsored by the organization Not In My Name. Although tensions rose between the protesting students and pro-war advocates, the demonstration remained peaceful. Photo by Laura Moreno Torn Two days later, Hussien showed no signs of leaving or of stepping down from power and within minutes of the 48 hour deadline, the United States had bombed Iraq's capital of Baghdad. Response to the war was mixed. The UH campus, as the most diverse urban campus in America, probably experienced a heightened sense of this division. An anti-war demonstration held in Butler Plaza turned into a war response demonstration with sound representation from both pro-war and anti-war individuals. Sophomore pre-medical student Mafa Le Mafa stood out against the war at the demonstration. "I feel that some real ly deep questions need to be addressed pertaining to this aggressive invasion, until then, this war is purely selfish and evil," Le Mafa said. Junior poitical science major Heather Kazmouz choose to stand up for the war at the demonstration. "I support our President and our troops. We need to unite as a nation or we make an easy target for terrorists and other enemies. Have these protestors forgotten 9/11? Containment simply will not work with Sadaam. He has had twelve years since he was first told to destroy his arms, yet he has not moved to get rid of them. I see this as a partisan protest if Clinton had wanted to go to war then they would be chanting something else," Kazmouz said. Story by Katherine Mayse "Protesting is not going to bring our troops back. All that protesting will accomplish is lowering troop morale and getting people killed/' -Jared Forbus Pro-War Partu In response to the students gathering to protest the war, a large number of students in support of the war gathered in Butler Plaza to let their voices be heard as well. Many pro-war students expressed the concern that the war had already begun and that no amount of protesting would stop it or bring the troops back safely. Photo by Laura Moreno fWMMMMM^
