UH groups urge letters against war
The University of Hawai'i faculty union and student caucus have combined efforts with the University Peace Initiative and UH-Not In Our Name to establish a letter-writing campaign against war with Iraq.
The grassroots coalition hopes to present the letters to U.S. Sen. Dan Inouye in late January so he can present them to President Bush, in the hope of encouraging the commander in chief to pursue a peaceful resolution to the dispute with Iraq.
An information table will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. this week at the UH-Manoa Campus Center.
Participants in the campaign are asked to submit their letters by noon Saturday. Letters can be e-mailed to email@example.com or dropped into campus boxes labeled "Peace Letters" at Moore Hall 305, Kuykendall 512, the Hamilton Library circulation desk and the Campus Center ASUH Office. Off-campus collection points are at the American Friends Service Committee at 2426 O'ahu Ave. and KOKUA Market at 2643 S. King St.
Volunteers to add to Manoa greenery
Think the University of Hawai'i campus could look better?
On Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon, you'll have a chance to make that happen as part of Campus Care Day at UH-Manoa. Volunteers will plant ferns, ti and palms in a new bed in the courtyard between Kuykendall Hall, Sakamaki Hall and the Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics.
