Students protest white nationalism movement on UW-Madison campus
MADISON, Wis. — Several hundred people gathered Tuesday night to protest the rise of white nationalism on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
Students gathered on Library Mall around 5 p.m. and marched up to Bascom Hall, sending a clear message to student Daniel Dropik and other supporters of the white nationalist, American Freedom party, that a group like that will be not tolerated on campus.
According to the American Freedom Party’s website, the group is anti-immigration and is primarily for white Americans.
“This isn’t the end. This is just the first step,” said Kat Kerwin with the Student Coalition for Progress. “We’re going to continue to be vigilant and make sure that white nationalist groups and people that are supporting these new Jim Crow ideals are shut down immediately.”
Dropik, the founder of Madison’s American Free Party chapter, said the group is dedicated to ending anti-white racism on campus.
