EUROPEAN ACTION WEEK AGAINST RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION PDF Print E-mail

Mahatma Gandhi Human Right Organization is happy to participate into the “EUROPEAN ACTION WEEK AGAINST RACISM AND DISCRIMINATION”  16th-22th March 2015.

21st 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 rights.

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 together they can promote a more friendly and inclusive society grounded on the respect of human rights.

Therefore Join us in contrasting racism and discrimination!
