In 1966, the United Nations designated March 21st as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, in memory of the 69 Black Africans murdered by the South African Apartheid regime in Sharpeville in 1960.
Today there is one Apartheid state left – Israel. In January 2021 B’Tselem, Israel’s main human rights organisation, declared that Israel, in its systematic oppression of the Palestinian people, maintains ‘a regime of Jewish supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea…This is Apartheid’.
This meeting will commemorate UN Anti-Racism Day by linking anti-racist struggles now and in the past.
