The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is on the 21st of March is to propagate the importance and necessity of the coexisting different cultures, to provide help in getting to know and accept each other and to commemorate to all those people who spent their whole lives with fighting against racism.

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in 2014 is intending to use culture to show the things bringing people together instead of disconnecting us. The series of events will be free to visit, held at different locations in the central area of the Party District in Budapest city within a few corners distance from each other. The face of the events will Mr Varga Livius (band Quimby) while the band named Akkezdet Phiai will be the main attraction at the concert at the end of the day.

The program will be based on three major campaigns which will be connected by the fight against racism and the Subjective Values Foundation:

U-CARE –  has been created by the cooperation of eleven organisations from eight different countries. Their main task is to form an anti-racist and anti-discriminative approach through city culture, arts and media. Because of the involved people in the programs are the youth they are able pass these values to their own generation more ffectively than older people. They propagate the message of the U-CARE with workshops and different events addressing thousands of young European people.

No Hate Speech Movement – is a campaign initiated by the Council of Europe involving and mobilizing youth with various online and offline methods against online hate speech. The National Campaign Committee celebrates its one year existence and on the 21st of March, and we intend to call the attention on the dangers of online forms of racism and intolerance with an individual action week.

ENAR – The third campaign is connected to the report about racism and discrimination towards Romany and immigrant people on the labor market in Hungary issued by the ENAR (European Network Against Racism) and the two major campaigns (“Vote for diversity” and the coming EU Parliament elections related “Your vote can unite or divide”). The aim of the reports issued by the ENAR is to inform the decision-makers in all over Europe about the given situation.
