European-wide Action Week Against Racism - 13-21 March 2010

By The partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe in the field of Youth


Teaser :
UNITED, an European anti-racism movement, organizes the 18th annual Action Week Against Racism with the support of the European Commission and the Council of Europe. Join the campaign! Order campaign material for free! Inform UNITED about your actions to highlight the issue of racism!

News :

The General Assembly of the United Nations declared 21 March the International Day for the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination. This day was implemented as a reaction to the murder of 69 anti-apartheid demonstrators in Sharpeville, South Africa, in 1960. Apartheid was a legal system of racial segregation enforced by the government of South Africa between 1948 and 1990.

Activists, NGO's, universities, schools, municipalities and a wide variety of different organisations carry out hundreds of activities all around Europe in order to make a change. In 2009, numerous organizations from 48 European countries joined the campaign!


Good activities don't have to be expensive. Much more important than money are creativity and engagement. Even small things can change the world! You do not necessarily have to organise a big demonstration or event: awareness about the emerging issues of racism and discrimination is already created when you spread/hang the UNITED campaign material in universities, schools, your working place or in the streets.


UNITED can send up to 2 kilos campaign material (posters and leaflets) free of charge (only in Europe).

To order the material, fill in the form and send it to 21march@unitedagainstracism.org


Inform us about your actions to highlight the issue of racism on European level sending the form at 21march@unitedagainstracism.org. Your activities will be published through the European List of Activities that creates visibility and attention all over Europe.
