Hand in Hand For Diversity!

European-wide Action Week Against Racism – 14-22 March 2015

Diversity! It enriches our culture, our societies, it makes our economies. It drives us to think broader and to respect our differences. Diversity has the power to make society better. That’s why we say: Lets stand hand in hand for diversity!

21 March is the International Day for the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination, established by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1966 following the brutal murder of 69 protestors in the South African township of Sharpeville in 1960. The massacre occurred during a protest against the apartheid laws of the South African government, a regime systematically enforcing racial inequality and segregation. Today racist murders and violence are still frequent and racial discrimination continues to be found at every level of our societies.
