** 21 MARCH **
The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination takes
place annually on 21 March. This day, in 1960, during a peaceful
demonstration in Sharpeville (South Africa) against the apartheid,
police opened fire and killed 69 people.

Proclaiming the Day in 1966, the General Assembly of the United Nations
called upon the international community to redouble its efforts to
eliminate all forms of racial discrimination.

During the annual European-wide Action Week Against Racism, which takes
place around 21 March, thousands of people fight for tolerance and equal
rights for everybody and celebrate the diversity of Europe.

This year, from 15-23 March, once again hundreds of activities on the
local, national and international level will take place all around
Europe, organised by a wide variety of organisations. Activities range
from intercultural youth festivals over getting racist slogans off the
walls to multicultural football matches.

** COLOUR YOUR PICTURE **
Value diversity, Stop all forms of racism!

Europe is experiencing a growing discrimination especially towards
migrant and minority groups. Governments have the responsibility to
build anti-discrimination measures and protect equal rights of people.
Instead we have poor reactions of state institutions, political parties
and media that even put the blame on discriminated groups themselves.
Innocent people continue to be victims of racism.

Violence, killings, hate crimes, beatings are a few examples of
manifestations of racial discrimination that are regularly reported all
over Europe. The alarming growth of racial motivated attacks is a clear
sign that we need to work out together a strong strategy.

Today we can travel, work and live in other countries in Europe, but we
experience a clash of differences on social level and we are confronted
with social exclusion, which endangers daily life of migrant groups in
Europe.

It is important that we all inform people in our communities about the
social effect of racism.
Look Deeper - See the colours, don't see black and white!

Non-governmental organisations, media, governments, we should work
together to promote solidarity and the benefits of diversity, as an
important strategy to make Europe a space where everybody can equally
participate.

** LET US CAMPAIGN TOGETHER **

nationalism, racism, fascism and in support of migrants and refugees.
Linked through UNITED, more than 560 organisations and youth
