0! G)! I II -------------February 21, 1994 -lblume I --Number 9------------Vandalism in Hamilton Center Women's Bathroom -----------On Thursday, Febmary 17, a group of women finally the long mural in the women's restroom in llamilton Center. Later that same evening at a time definetely after 10: 30 p .m. and probably after 1:00 a m.-the mural and the bathroom itself was vandalized by an unknown person(s). Anyone with any information about the vandalism is asked to inform either Student Affairs or the campus police. The van dalism was discovered Friday moming. The paint for the mural was purchased by the Housing Department as a re sponse to the repeated vandalism of the bathroom walls. It is suspected that the perpetrators of this crime are also guilty of the previous vandalism n,e case will probably be handled as a hate crime. Student A&S fees will be paying for the damage. In response to the vandalism, a Speakout on com munity at New College will be held on Thursday, February 24 at 6:00 p.m. in the College !Iall Living Room 111e vandalism consisted primarily of the images of ejaculating penises painted over the panels of the mural that were at all womanrelated -over sun/symbols, an Adrienne Rich poem. a woman ymbol, and a painting of a woman of color. leading to suspected racism as well Panels that were merely abstract color block were not attacked. Addi tionally, one of the brick walls had the following quote: "I am a 'voman. I like men. I don't dislike women, but the Fcninazis arc out of control. .. 'l11c misspelling was the vandal(s) own. A reference to Pamera," a heavy metal band was in cluded. Paint was also spilled over the carpet and over the walls and the mirror. It has not yet been determined if the leftover paint from the mural was accidently left in the bathroom or if it had been locked up and later stolen by the vandal(s). Student reaction to the vandalism seemed to be gen erally disgust and anger When seeking for student reactions, no one was found who disliked the origina l mural, who supported or approved of the vandalism, or who admitted to the act. Sylvia Youseffi, one of the organ izers of the mural paint ing. felt that the vandalism undennines administrators' trust "Vandalism" Continued on page 7 Bernadette Devlin to Speak at New College -----------Bernadette Devlin is coming to New College It's no accident that you've never hean.l of Bernadene De,lin For over two decades her every statement has been by the British and international press; throughout this time hl'r only reliable avenue to the public has been mimeographed statements. 1 ot surprisingly, this has severely limited her ac cess to the average American Bernadette Devlin will be speaking at ew College on Thursday, March 3 at 2 p .m. in Sudakoff Center. She s radical, she's female she's very smart, and she' s a major world figure-all things we like to encourage at New College (PaF ticularly with all the stuff currently happening in 1 ort hem Ireland, y'all would be fools to miss her) About Bernadette Devlin McAliskey Bernadette Devlin McAliskey is rather like Malcolm X, although, true, Malcolm X rarely wore skirt.s and never was a member of Great Britain s parliament. lllf'l)ugh out her career, Devlin has constantly fought to be for her radical politics rather than the per onal notoriety which seemed to perpetually surround her. In the late sixties. De, lin was in tn.nnental in beginning the peaceful campaign for ci,il rights in orthem Ireland, modelled after the civil rights marches that had been successful in the United Stat('S. Due to her leadership in this campaign.

In 1971, she made big news when it was announced that she would be a sing l e pu .. nt. Her notoriety was maintained when, in 1972, she punched British Home Secretary Reginald Maulding in the nose during a House of Commons debate.

at is PI G? First in a Four-Part Series on the Df:fferent PIRG campaigns 41K4a 4d-Le4La -----What is PIRG? TI1e PIRGs (Public Interest Research Group) are a network of college grouped by states, that work together for a clean cnviromcnt, consumer rights, and good government. Florida PIRG is made up of USF, FSU, ew College and FlU students. In 1983. Ne''' College began its chapter when a majority of students petitioned to establish a Florida. PlRG program and fee on campus. In 1988, a major ity of students petitioned to keep the g1oup on campus. Reduce Toxic Pollution Project Exposure to toxic chemicals represents a widespread and serious threat to the environment and public health in Florida. Taxies are pervasive in our air, water, soil, and even our food. In 1991, large industrial facilities in Florida admitted releasing 121 million pounds of taxies into the environ ment. Aaual toxic releases may be up to 20 times higheJ; as the 121 million pounds does not mdude small businesses, agriculture. government facilities, and households. Florida is ranked 13th in the country for highest releases of taxies to surface water and there art over 1 "i()() known ha7.ardous waste sJtes in Florida A number of toxic chemicaL-; released to the environment are identified \Vith a range of specific health effects. including cancer, immune suppression, neurological damage, birth defect.s, and reproductive failure. Some toxins are very persistent in the envirnnment. and others "bioaccumulate;that i they increase in concentration in an organism s tissue as they move up the food chain. The long-teu11 effectS of many taxies are unknown, and the cumulative effect of expo sure to multiple taxies is only beginning to be Politically. there are opportunities at the state and f<:deral levels to create effccti\'e pohcie. to rt'duce toxic pol lution. These strategies fall under the general description of Taxies lse Reduction (TUH). TUR means looking to eliminate toxics before they enter a pipehne. smokestack, holding pond, or landfill. TUR means a comprehensive approach that incorporates the goal of reducing the use and generation of taxies into the basic desgn and operation of manufacturing. 1UR strategies include: improving training, maintenance and housekeeping in manufacturing facilities, substituting di f erent raw materials rede igning and refonnulating products. and changing processes. procedures. and equipment. The P I RGs have been at the forefront of writing and winning Tl.JR legislation around the country, including state laws in Oregon, Ma achusett and .\"ew Jersey. The specific FPJR(i IS seektng in Florida include polluuon pt:vention legislation in Tallahassee and passage of a strongLr and tougher Clean Water Act in Congress. Oppo ition Compan1es have a financial and -atutudinal" invest ment in the status quo, and arc reluctant to fundamentally reorder their priorities and reexamine their basic way of do ing business as is required by TUR. Many industries alt' cur rently able to enjoy a "false economy" in the area of taxies, dumping or discharg'ng toxies into the envi1onment and avoid ing the costs of tho1>e ac!lons. 'I1H: price of polluton-poi soned air, tainted water, contaminated soil-is paid for not by the responsible companies, but by the public 111 the fonn of health problems or taxpayer-funded clean ups. Motivated by desires to profit from pollution and tx clude the public from their business policy decisions, major industrial interests arc pumping money into lobbying and public relations campaigns to block the implementation of TUR policies in the states and at the federal level. Action FPIHG is lobbying to pass Pollution Prevention legis lation in the 1994 legislative session. Passing even the tively modest proposals in this bill will reqUire direct lobbying of representatives and senators. FPlRG is also working to compile infonnation about t11e toxic contamination problem in Florida For more information and to get involved. contact McGee at 358-0999 or Anne Marie at 359-9530 Memorial Service Held t\ memorial service for Jonathon Guy was held on Friday, rcbruary 11.

For others, it i s to and spread also those word that are meaningful to us.
