UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination was established six years after the Sharpeville tragedy or Sharpeville massacre, which captured worldwide attention when police opened fire killing 69 people at a peaceful demonstration against the apartheid "pass laws" in Sharpeville, South Africa, March 21, 1960.

Marches will be taking place across the country in London, Cardiff and Glasgow as well as in cities across Europe.  To make a stand against racism, contact Stand Up To Racism for further details on how you can take part.
