"Israel Independence Day, 2002 and Counting..." read the sea of royal blue T-shirts adorning members of the UCLA Jewish Student Union (JSU) -- a positive statement at a time when Jewish students are receiving a great deal of negative publicity on college campuses across the country. More than 120 Jewish students, including JSU members, gathered at UCLA's Meyerhoff Park on April 11 to oppose an anti-Zionist rally organized by the Peace and Justice Coalition. The coalition, a new group on the UCLA campus, is an alliance of student organizations, including the Muslim Student Association, the African Student Union, Samahang Filipino, the Asian Pacific Coalition, the Vietnamese Student Union, Concerned Asian Pacific-Islander Students for Action, the United Arab Society, the Iranian Student Group and the Pakistani Student Association.
