** 21 MARCH **
21 March was declared International Day for the Elimination of All Forms
of Racial Discrimination by the General Assembly of the United Nations
as a reaction to the murder of 70 anti-apartheid demonstrators in
Sharpeville, South Africa, in 1960. During the annual European-wide
Action Week, which centres around 21 March, thousands of people actively
engage themselves for tolerance, equal rights and celebrate the
diversity of Europe. This year once again hundreds of activities will
take place all around Europe, organised by a wide variety of
organisations.

Activities range from intercultural youth festivals, cleaning off the
walls racist slogans, to multicultural football matches.

** ACT **
Thousand activists will act together to highlight one common problem:
racism. Discrimination on all grounds is still affecting many aspects of
everyday life. Raising awareness in all fields of life - that's the key
to defeat racism!

We have to stand together, be UNITED to support the antiracist and anti
discrimination youth vision and to SPEAK OUT together against racism and
the negative political tendencies in Europe! With an authentic and
living movement we can put antiracism into the mainstream of
contemporary culture. Young people can and should be a part of the
solution to the problem of racism.

** 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 European network against
nationalism, racism, fascism and in support of migrants and refugees.
Linked through UNITED, more than 550 organisations and youth
organisations work together on a voluntary basis.
