The power of humans: International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

The global society knows no borders or races. We are all interconnected, and it's our collective responsibility to build a world where everyone has equal opportunities and is treated with respect.


March 21st marks the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Established by the UN in 1966, this day commemorates the Sharpeville massacre in South Africa, where police opened fire on a peaceful anti-apartheid protest in 1960.


Racial discrimination is a persistent evil that plagues societies worldwide. It manifests in various forms, ranging from overt racism and xenophobia to more subtle and disguised forms of prejudice. Racial discrimination can have devastating consequences, limiting opportunities and undermining a person's sense of dignity and security.




 

The power of people to speak out, organize, and demand change transcends borders. From grassroots movements in local communities to international campaigns, the collective power of individuals has been instrumental in dismantling discriminatory systems around the world.
