We must reject and condemn racism with no hesitation, the UNSG called in his message for the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

This year´s theme will be ‘Voices for Action Against Racism’, and in this way, it is called to speak out loud, listen carefully and to act decisively against such manifestations, Mr. Guterres stressed.

Africans and African descent people, Asians and Asian descent people, minority communities, indigenous peoples, migrants, refugees and many others still face stigmatization, scapegoating, discrimination and violence, Mr. Guterres stated.

But bringing the vision of a world free of racism and racial discrimination to reality requires to take actions every single day, at all levels and in all societies, UNSG said.
