Winnipeg youth come together to march against racism

WINNIPEG — Nearly 900 Winnipeg students came together to march against racism Thursday morning.

“It’s a great initiative to show Winnipeg’s youth are together as one and we hope that all these schools getting together makes everyone feel like they belong and they belong here in Winnipeg,”
Philippe Burns, organizer of the event said. Burns is part of Students Together Against Racism Today or START.

The group says the march was in response to last months Maclean’s article that called Winnipeg the most racist city in Canada.

The march started at the Manitoba Legislative Building, went down Memorial Street, up York Street onto Garry Street and back down Broadway and gathered back at the Legislative Building.
