Against Racism Week

The General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed the 21st March to be International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. This day commemorates the Massacre at Sharpeville which occurred in 1960 when demonstrators were protesting against the implementation of apartheid by South African Police

The United Nations General Assembly reiterates that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights and have the ability to contribute in a constructive manner to the development and wellbeing of society and that all doctrines espousing racial superiority are scientifically false, morally reprehensible, socially unjust and dangerous and should be rejected in the same way as those theories that claim to determine the existence of separate human races.


The Week against Racism is a raising awareness programme of activities that through exhibitions, talks, debates, cinema forums etc., aims to make citizens aware of the fight against racism and xenophobia.
