Stories from the April 20, 2000 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Radical replies

Based upon The Hatchet’s biased coverage of the April 16 protests, it has become quite clear that The Hatchet staff is more on its knees toward the World Bank than our corporate University is. Maybe after James Wolfensohn, president of the World Bank, gets his honorary degree from GW at Commencement, The Hatchet might want […]

GW recovers from protests

University officials said the GW community responded well under the potential threat of violence and came together during a mostly peaceful atmosphere of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund protests last weekend. An estimated 10,000 demonstrators from across the country descended upon GW’s campus to protest against and raise awareness about the two lending […]

Islamic instruction

Economic globalization, callous capitalist carnivores, exploitation – intellectual jargon has become commonplace. Surely this is a sign of higher educational standards or maybe, ironically, the strength of a movement that has spread awareness on exploitation preventing deeper academic engagement in issues like these. All organizations involved with the International Monetary Fund/World Bank protest have done […]

Staff Editorial – Don’t mangle Miranda

The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments April 19 from police and local prosecutors wishing to end the requirement that police officers read the Miranda rights prior to questioning suspects.

Microsoft CEO anticipates future

With about 100 guests of Microsoft and cameras from CNN and C-SPAN present for the School of Business and Public Management’s final CEO lecture series event, Ballmer was aware his audience was also packed with […]

Crusty conservatives are bad sports

The GW College Republicans are right (GW Republicans rejected at ceremony, Monday, April 17). They should have gotten an award last week. Unfortunately for them, however, the category they would have locked up – whining – isn’t recognized at the Excellent in Student Life Awards ceremony. Their attempt at setting the record straight in The […]

GW’s Greatest Games: 6 – GW 86, Maryland 76

Jan. 29, 1977Men’s Basketball With 13,316 stunned fans streaming out of Cole Field House, GW’s Kevin Hall yelled, The night belongs to you, and the game belongs to GW!

GW Law School student Justin Jones, a legal observer during Monday’s protests, said he was stripped of his civil rights when Metropolitan Police jailed him for parading without a permit.
