Cartoon | International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

This year the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is observed under the theme – “Voices for Action against Racism” – and calls on everyone to listen closely, speak out loudly, and act decisively against racism and racial prejudices.

Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees said in a statement to commemorate the day, “We can – and must – salute solidarity, while also resolutely condemning acts of discrimination and bias.

“We can reject actions that threaten our core values or strip others of their fundamental human rights, while we continue to acknowledge and learn from our own biases.

Anti-racism means actively identifying and opposing racism and racial discrimination. Today – and everyday – I call on all of us to raise our voices against policies, practices, and behaviours which exclude”.
