Youth Group Plans Powell, Reno Protests
The Boston-area Spartacus Youth Club, which includes a dozen Harvard undergraduates, is adding two more to the already busy schedule of protests planned for Harvard's Commencement week.
In addition to protesting Gen. Colin Powell's Harvard Commencement address on June 10, the club, a socialist organization, will demonstrate at U.S. Attorney General Janet Rene's June 9 speech at the Law School.
Roy H. Hamilton '95, outgoing president of the club, said the planned demonstrations are intended to show "that there are other interests [Reno and Powell] represent, interests that are...bad."
The club's opposition to Reno reserves around the FBI's assault on David Koresh's Waco religious sect, causing what a letter by the club to. The Crimson called "the fiery massacre of 86 innocent people, including 25 children."
