[Brüsszeli Civil Iroda]
14 - 21 March, 2005: European-wide Action Week Against Racism
Nemzetközi hét az antirasszizmus jegyében
- Europe stands up against racism: activities in 40 European countries -
Between 14-21 March, 2005 various non-governmental organisations in more than 40 different European countries will raise their common voice against one common European problem: racism.
21 March was declared "International Day for the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination" by the General Assembly of the UN as a reaction to the murder of 70 demonstrators in Sharpeville, South Africa, in 1960. Still, in 21st century Europe, racism keeps on affecting people's minds, thoughts and deeds. This year NGOs in countries such as Romania, Ukraine, Spain, Poland and Great-Britain concentrate on anti-racist education and big nationwide campaigns with hundreds of different events are launched in Finland and Germany. I CARE the Internet Centre Anti-Racism Europe is going to report live from the Europe-wide Action Week Against Racism in English, French and Spanish from activities all over Europe.
