Send a message against Discrimination - WAD2020

Read below the Press Release of the 6th Walk Against Discrimination - WAD2020, from home:


Saturday, 21 March 2020

This year, we may not march together the “Walk Against Discrimination”, but we send all together a message against discrimination:

YES to home, NO to racism!

The International Day against Racism (International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination), on Saturday, 21st of March, the Greek Forum of Migrants, for a 6th year in a row, is calling for all groups that are currently being discriminated and affected by racism to raise their voices and to declare their determination to fight all kinds of racism and humiliation of human dignity.

We unite our voices, representatives from wider groups affected by discrimination and racism (PWD, LGBTQI, Roma, Migrants, Refugees, HIV positive, Elderly, Drug addicts, Mentally ill, Religion minorities, etc.), and united we send our message by posting to the online FB event of the Walk Against Discrimination #WAD2020, together for a better world.

Through Social Media, every day until the 21st of March, we leave our personal or collective message, as an organisation of Civil Society that supports the #WAD2020, against racism and discrimination.

The closure of the WAD 2020, as every year, is happening with the Award Ceremony of Antiracism - Tzanetos Antypas 2019 award to an organization or a person for its contribution to the dealing with the issues of anti-racism and human rights. This year, the Organizing Committee of the WAD2020 decided the award to be given by the Golden Dawn Watch to the Union of Press Photographers Greece - EFE, for their contribution and support to vulnerable social groups, by their everyday work, opposing fascism, racist violence and promoting human dignity, sometimes by putting their own lives in danger. The award ceremony is temporarily postponed.
The award was established in 2017 in the memory of the activist and founder of PRAKSIS organization, Tzanetos Antypas, where each year an organization or a person working on issues of anti-racism and human rights is awarded.

Follow the FB event here, and leave your message as a contribution to our cause:
