International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

The world celebrates March 21 every year Anti-discrimination day. The event was initiated by the United Nations on October 26, 1966. The date of the celebration was chosen in honor of the day of the demonstration (March 21, 1960) in the Republic of South Africa, during which the police killed 69 peaceful demonstrators.

Anti-discrimination day aims to attract society to tolerance and respect for each other, because only in this way the world will be able to develop and live in peace. The UN emphasizes equal rights, regardless of a person’s race or ethnic origin.

Until March 21, various briefings, promotions and children’s activities are usually organized, thanks to which children are taught respect for all nationalities, cultures and skin colors.
