Cuban President advocates for racial equality

Havana, Mar 21 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel today promoted that the day for the elimination of racial discrimination should be celebrated every day.

According to the United Nations, today is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. It should be every day. Too great is the world’s debt to the victims of racism. Another world #BetterIsPossible,’ the president wrote on his Twitter account.

The day is celebrated on March 21 each year in commemoration of when, in 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 persons at a peaceful demonstration against the “apartheid pass law” being practiced in Sharpeville, South Africa.

When proclaiming the Day in 1966, the United Nations General Assembly urged the international community to redouble its efforts to eliminate all forms of discrimination based on skin color.

According to the multilateral body, the theme for 2023 focuses on the urgency of fighting racism and racial discrimination, as this continues to affect people all over the world.
