St. Thomas students protest white nationalist stickers on campus

Students at the University of St. Thomas on Tuesday protested the appearance of stickers linked to a white nationalist group on their St. Paul campus, the university said.

About 200 people turned out for the demonstration outside the Anderson Student Center, the day after the stickers showed up on doors and signs around campus, according to a post on the St. Thomas website.

The stickers, which were first discovered Monday morning, were quickly removed, the university said.

St. Paul police told TommieMedia that about two dozen were affixed to university property, light poles and traffic signs about 3 a.m. Monday.

St. Paul police are investigating the incident with the university’s department of public safety.

The school said in an email Monday that the public safety team removed the stickers.

“St. Thomas will not tolerate acts of racism and intolerance, or anything that stands against our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. We understand these acts are hurtful and are intended to instill fear and division,” the school told students, faculty and staff.
