PAGE 12 PRESS-REPUBLICAN GENERAL NEWS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17,1995 P I? BLACK... Continued from Page 1 view. A few waded through the Reflecting Pool, one wearing few if any clothes. \It's a healing feeling -to see so many black men come together, and not a whole bunch of violence or drugs or all that stuff,\ said Donald Simms of the Brooklyn borough of New York City. \This whole thing is about self-respect.\ People lined up 10-deep around the food vendors, and the mixed aromas of barbecue and vegetarian curries filled the air. Scores of Nation of Islam members, standing erect in suits and their trademark bow ties, lent an air of solemnity. Civil rights veterans Jesse Jackson, Rosa Parks and Dick Gregory were among dozens of back-to-back speakers who spoke from behind bulletproof glass. Stevie Wonder sang Quebec Continued from Page 1 \We're one of the white races that has fewest children, that's really something,\ he added. \That suggests we haven't solved our family problems.\ Quebec's birthrate has been stagnant for several years, and immigrants have accounted for virtually all the population growth in the province of 7 mil- lion people. PRO-LIFERS. Continued from Page 1 President Clinton was shown a fetus during the 1992 Democratic National Convention. . The court in 1992 ruled that states cannot ban most abor- tions, reaffirming the constitu- tional right of abortion it first announced in 1973. In other action Monday, the court: — Let Coral Gables, Fla., im- pose stringent regulations on the appearance of newspaper ven- briefly and Maya Angelou read a poem urging the crowd to do right by itself and \save your race.\ Giant speakers and video screens were set up around the Mall, but most men couldn't get near enough to them to benefit. \We can't hear,\ said Harold Johnson of Reading, Pa., \but we can feel the important feel of it.\ The event often had the feeling of a revival meeting, with men clapping and singing along with church choirs, then bowing their heads in prayer. At one point, like collection plates in a church, cardboard boxes and plastic bags were passed through the crowd for contributions to defray the cost of the event and began a black economic development fund. Each time a bag was filled, or- ganizers hoisted it into the air Bouchard \has no idea of the reality of Quebec in 1995,\ said Labor Minister Lucienne Robillard, the federal gov- ernment's top coordinator of ref- erendum strategy. \Does that mean a white woman who is married to an immigrant from Chile 6f some- where else shouldn't have children? What on earth is he talking about?\ ding machines on the city's public sidewalks. The regulations had been challenged as free- speech violations. — Let stand a Clay County, Fla., ban on the sale of alcoholic beverages on Christmas, attack- ed as a violation of the required separation of church and state. —Agreed to decide in a case from Missouri whether labor to the cheers of the crowd that waved dollar bills in the air. By mid-morning, co-organizer Benjamin Chavis Jr. said the crowd had passed the 1 million mark. The National Park Ser- vice said it would provide its own estimate in the afternoon, using pictures taken from helicopters. Several women spoke on stage, but few were scattered through the crowd. Farrakhan had asked them to stay home to pray, fast and teach the children. He also asked all black Americans to stay home from work or school and avoid spending money. Phillippa Braxton of subur- ban Laurel, Md., came to the Mall to lend support to the men, saying, \This will show America that the black man isn't some gun-toting, drug-selling stereo- type that's portrayed in the media.\ Chantale Corriveau, spokeswoman for a federalist women's group called Impacte, said, \Linking the personal choice of women to bear children or not to the question of Quebec's sovereignty is to marginalize women and strip them of their personal choices.\ Not all separatists appeared ready to share Bouchard's con- cerns over the low birthrate. unions, in behalf of their members, may sue companies that fail to give the legally re- quired notice of plant closings or mass layoffs. — Threw out an appeal in which South Carolina argued that The Citadel should remain all-male even without a separate, state-run program for women.
