Fight Racism Now – A Global Effort to Put Anti-Racism on the Political Agenda. Stand Up 21 March 2014!

We’ve had enough. No more second and first class citizens. It’s enough. No more inequality because I am indigenous, black, Muslim, Asian, was born in a faraway land or have an accent. This is what we want. Societies that respect the inherent dignity and equality of people without discrimination. Equal rights, equal treatment, equal opportunities. Regardless of race, colour, ethnicity, religion or national origin. What do you want? Are you with us? “Fight Racism Now: Action Speaks Louder Than Words”.

 

 

This campaign began out of frustration. All over Europe patterns of everyday racism are very similar. And politicians are doing little to combat it. In addition, xenophobic politics are on the rise. Also in other parts of the world we see similar patterns of racism and a lack of political initiative.

The Swedish civil society organization Fight Racism Now (FRN) was born out of this frustration. The campaign has since grown to include Europe, North America, Latin America and South Africa. It is supported by the Open Society Foundations.

This campaign is a call to politicians and the general public to put anti-racism on the political agenda. It gives everyone an opportunity to sign a declaration of anti-racism, a list of political demands and to stand up for the petitions on the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination 21 March 2014.

Please Join Us in Solidarity and use our collective voice to demand the UN and local governments hear our petitions and demands.
