International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

March 21

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is observed annually on 21 March. Every 21st of March the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination marks the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre when 69 black South African citizens – including 10 children – were shot to death by their own Police for protesting against racial apartheid laws.  The 2018 celebration witnessed about 40 multicultural events, sporting activities, debates, forums, speech contests and food festivals taking place across Aotearoa to support Race Relations Day.

Our people, our cultures, our languages
O tātou iwi, ō tātou ahurea, ō tātou reo
