March 21st is International Day Against Racism, a day when the people across the globe show their opposition to racism. This annual event declared as a memorial by the United Nations in response to the murder of 69 anti-apartheid demonstrators in Sharpeville, South Africa, in 1960.
European Week Against Racism
European Week Against Racism centres on International Day Against Racism and is co-ordinated in Ireland by the Irish Network Against Racism (ENAR Ireland). This Year, the focus is on making hate crime visible by reporting racist incidents. To find out how to report a racist incident, visit www.reportracism.ie
The Irish Network Against Racism (ENAR Ireland) produces an online calendar for European Week Against Racism. We publicise events and recognise the excellent work in anti-racism undertaken in Ireland.
