SIUE students respond with messages of peace after racist slur is found on campus
Flyers for the white supremacist group Identity Evropa are appearing on the campus of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, the student newspaper reports.
Posters saying “Our Generation Our Future Our Last Chance” have been found in multiple buildings around the SIUE campus, including Peck Hall and the engineering building, according to The Alestle.
In a tweet, SIUE said it “denounces these orgs & their positions.”
“We did not approve these flyers and removed as many as we could,” said Michelle Welter, associate director of the Kimmel Involvement Center. Welter also said Identity Evropa has not asked to be a recognized student organization.
According to the organization’s website, it is the “fastest growing identitarian organization in North America.”
The Anti-Defamation League names the group as a racist white supremacist organization. The Southern Poverty Law Center calls it a hate group.
