lack of government response to the recent MPV (monkeypox) outbreak, there was a second group of protestors expressing outrage over what they saw as systemic racism that prevented many foreign IAS delegates from attending the conference.
It seems many delegates, the majority of whom were from African countries, were denied travel visas by the Canadian government, and therefore could not attend.
In addition, most had already made extensive and costly travel arrangements before being denied entry.Both groups of protestors stormed the stage and demanded to be heard during the event's opening ceremonies.After dozens of the activists protesting the visa denials chanted “Let us take the stage!” as the event opened Friday morning, event organizers did allow them to do so for about 10 minutes, according to a report by health care advocacy organization CodeBlue.
