High School Students March against Racism

A crowd of nearly nine hundred high school students rallied at the Manitoba Legislature building today and marched through the city demanding an end to racism.1 The march was organized by a coalition of student leaders under the name Students Together Against Racism Today – or START. The march was organized in response to the Maclean’s article which labeled Winnipeg as Canada’s most racist city. 1. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/our-communities/herald/Winnipeg-students-take-action-against-racism-293875051.html http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/student-led-anti-racism-march-hits-downtown-winnipeg-streets-1.2973594
