Kelvin students, led by
co-presidents Hannah L and Dale D-B, took part in a public demonstration
for Unity and Equality in the streets of downtown Winnipeg. The event
was the START rally: Students Together Against Racism Today. The event
was a response to the recent cover story featuring Winnipeg as the
racist capital of Canada.
Kelvin students met together to create signs
with positive messages (a Cree proverb, a statement on Community and on
racism) and braved the Winterpeg temperatures (with windchills of -40
degrees), to take public transit to the Manitoba Legislature. Once
there, they joined over 1000 students from 17 different Winnipeg high
schools who listened to testimonials and calls for positive action from
Provincial Cabinet Minister Kevin Chief (who comes to speak to Kelvin
students next week).
Then they took to the streets, marching 5
kilometres and greeting stalled motorists with chants and festive
posters. Congratulations to Kelvin reps Diana E., Vida E., Moira S.,
Nikki B., Nell P., Jaden S. and our noble co-presidents for taking a
step towards promoting Community.
