****************************************

The next European-wide Action Week Against Racism is scheduled for 
14-21 March 2005. UNITED for Intercultural Action provides attractive 
campaign material free of charge (see below).

21 March was declared International Day for the Elimination of Racial 
Discrimination by the General Assembly of the United Nations as a 
reaction to the murder of 70 peaceful anti-apartheid demonstrators in 
Sharpeville, South Africa in 1960. During the Action Week Against 
Racism, 14-21 March 2005 once again hundreds of activities will take 
place all around Europe, organised by a wide variety of 
organisations. Activities range from demonstrations and debates to 
film and music festivals and from special TV programs to cleaning the 
walls of racist slogans.

The Action Week 2005 begins on 14 March and ends on 21 March with the 
possibility of using the weekend 19-20 March for larger actions. Due 
to Easter holidays this year the Action Week cannot include two 
weekends (which was the practice until now), because it would be an 
obstacle for schools to take part.

**ACT**
This year's campaign for the European-wide Action Week Against Racism 
aims to raise awareness among people towards racism in everyday-life 
and to make them ACT against it. Anti-racism has to be put into the 
mainstream of contemporary youth culture. We must speak out against 
everyday racism and the negative political tendencies in Europe. We 
need to combat racism through UNITED action. We need to ACT together.

**LET US CAMPAIGN TOGETHER!**
UNITED links various activities and highlights the issues of racism 
on a European level. It publicises and supports initiatives of local 
groups.
UNITED for Intercultural Action is the largest pan-European network 
against nationalism, racism, fascism and in support of migrants and 
refugees and connects over 560 organisations from 49 European 
countries. For more campaign information:

activities on the Action Week and to order free campaign material 
such as posters and postcards.
