Students Protest Cartoon's
Depiction Of Muslims
In Daily Californian at UC Berkeley
By Amy Williams, Staff Writer

   BERKELEY -- Dozens of students protested inside the offices of the University of California, Berkeley, student newspaper Tuesday night.
     The protesters declared a sit-in and decried what they called a racist editorial cartoon run in that day's edition of the Daily Californian.
The editor of the student publication told reporters on Tuesday and Wednesday there were a hundred or so protestors outside the office.
    Californian Photo Protestors were heard to demand an apology by the Daily Californian boiard of directors. At issueis the publication of a syndicated cartoonist Darrin Bell. In a statement issued early Wednesday, the Senior Editorial Board of the newspaper said it would not issue an apology for the cartoon.
     The board said the cartoon represented the opinion of the cartoonist and "in no way reflects the views and opinions of the Daily California ... we maintain the cartoon falls within the realm of fair comment." the board said in a printed news release received late Wednesday.. "Cartoons are usually exaggerated, sometimes satire, and almost always meant to spark a discussion.
     We are willing to begin a reasoned discourse on Protest....this issue with a representative group of student leaders," the student newspaper Board of Directors concluded.
     In opposition to the Californian's position, Robert Chala who said he represented the Arab Student Union told reporters, "...this cartoon is a license for violence against Arab, Muslim, Sikh, Iranian, and other communities... Freedom of speech should not come at the cost of anyone's safety!"

    [Editor's Note: According to a notice early this morning, an unidentified party hacked into The Daily Californian Web Site Wednesday evening and placed on the site a falsified apology for the publication of Darrin Bell's Tuesday editorial cartoon. The Daily Cal Senior Editorial Board reaffirms that it will not issue an apology. UC police are investigating the breach in the Daily Cal's online security. ]
