The United Nations nominated March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
The proclamation of this day was a direct result of the happenings of March 21, 1960. At a peaceful demonstration against the apartheid “pass laws,” police openly fired on and killed 69 people in Sharpeville, South Africa.
For the past 16 years Campbell River has been uniting on the closest Saturday to this day to support individuals that experience racial discrimination.
It will be kicked off with a social gathering and live multicultural entertainment, as well as face painting and activities for the children.
