A small but vocal group of about 30 University of Hawaii faculty and students raised objections to UH?officials’ support for the upcoming Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference today.

After marching from the Hamilton Library side of the Manoa campus to Bachman Lawn, they used masking tape to place X’s over the letters of the "E Komo Mai APEC"?sign that they want removed from what is regarded as the front yard of the campus.

They then returned to Bachman Hall, which houses the UH?system offices, and presented a petition with about 150 names demanding the sign’s removal to Rockne Freitas, UH?vice president for student affairs and university and community relations.
