The petition says we, the undersigned students, faculty, staff and alumni of Eastern Michigan University call on President Porter and the Board of Regents to sever all ties between the new golf course and South African golfer Gary Player, so as to comply with the United Nations' athletic boycott of South Africa; in so doing, we do not intend to personally attack Gary Player, but to place unified international pressure on the apartheid regime by creating an atmosphere of athletic, cultural and economic isolation.
