Challenging racism

On 21 March 1960 police opened fire on peaceful protestors against the pass laws in Sharpeville, South Africa.

In memory of the massacre, the UN declared 21 March the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Remember all who were victims of apartheid and their families, for the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and for the new South Africa. And remember all who have been murdered or attacked by racist violence and all who work for racial justice and against discrimination of any kind.
