Posters affiliated with the white supremacist group, Identity Europa, were posted in a Colorado State University academic building Monday morning. The posters were promptly removed in accordance with University policy.

The posters were reported in Clark C, according to Dell Rae Ciaravola, member of CSU’s public safety team. At least six posters were found initially. 

There were at least three posters with different messages: “Our Generation Our Future Our Last Chance,” “Action Leadership Identity” and “Your Professor is Scared of This Book,” with an image of the book, “White Identity.”

CSU’s Public Safety team issued an alert for a bias-motivated incident at 1:45 p.m. The alert described the flyers explicitly as related to a “white supremacist group.” 

“Flyers related to an extremist white supremacist hate group were posted without authorization on campus and have been removed,” the alert stated. “The sentiments expressed are deeply offensive and do not reflect the values and character of the CSU community.”

Identity Europa describes themselves as “a generation of awakened Europeans who have discovered that we are part of the great peoples, history, and civilization that flowed from the European continent,” according to their website

The public safety alert also stated CSU wants to set “high expectations for respect and behavior,” and for students affected to take advantage of CSU resources as needed.
