Mahatma Gandhi Human Right Organization is happy
to participate into the “EUROPEAN ACTION WEEK AGAINST RACISM AND
March is the international day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination by
the UN, which aims to promote greater respect and trust among different
groups within society. 4 January 1969 entered into force the
International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial
Discrimination, through which States accepted
to prohibit and condemn any form of racial discrimination, intended as ”any
distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, color,
descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of
nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal
footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic,
social, cultural or any other field of public life.
Legal prohibition and theoretical condemn are not
enough and practical actions must to be made in eradicating all those attitudes
and behaviors that affect the opportunities for everybody to grant own human
States are asked to ensure the respect, promotion
and protection of the fundamental rights to everyone, without any distinction. However the reality is far from the desired outcome
of the Declaration.
Racism, intolerance and racial discrimination are
widely increasing in Hungary but also in the European Union as a whole. These
attitudes not only affect migrants, minorities and the direct victims, rather
they are threats for the entire society and the universal human rights.
Combating racism, intolerance and discrimination
is not only a task of governments, but all individuals are committed to promote
social inclusion and integration each others. All of us are called to reduce
racism and intolerance through daily and little step, which whether are matched

respect of human rights.
