Emergency Demonstration Against Racist Death Threats

Date: 
Wed, Feb 8, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Last night racist and anti-Semitic emails were sent to University engineering and computer science students.

'The first two emails read: “Hi n*****s, I just wanted to say that I plan to kill all of you. White power! The KKK has returned!!! Heil Trump!!!!”

The third reads: “Hi you fucking filthy jews, I just wanted to say the SS will rise again and kill all of your filthy souls. Die in a pit of eternal fire! Sincerely, Dr. Alex Halderman.”' (Michigan Daily)

We must take the strongest possible action against death threats by fascists.
