Fighting racism

U of S President Peter MacKinnon, left, and University Secretary-designate Gordon Barnhart hand out "Racism – Stop It!" stickers to students passing through the Place Riel/Arts Tunnel at 8:15 a.m. March 21, during a placard protest against racism by about 200 University staff. The protest kicked off a day of events on campus marking observation of March 21 as "International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination". Activities included displays of discrimination and racism at the Bookstore, a "Hugs and Stickers" event put on in Lower Place Riel by Student Affairs and Services, an Aboriginal dance performance, public lectures, a forum on employment equity, and a film and discussion. The date marks the anniversary of the March 21, 1960 killing of 69 anti-apartheid demonstrators by police in Sharpeville, South Africa. U of S anti-racism day events were supported by many units on campus and were co-ordinated by a committee co-chaired by Kurt Tischler, International Student Advisor, and Carole Pond, Co-ordinator of Discrimination and Harassment Prevention Services.
