"ACT! Against Racism" - "European-Wide Action Week Against Racism"
21.03.2005
"International Day for the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination"
March 21st was declared International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination by the General Assembly of the United Nations as a reaction to the murder of 70 peaceful anti-apartheid demonstrators in Sharpeville, South Africa in 1960. Racism can often be "ordinary", it happens on an every-day basis, in the street, in the school, in the workplace, in the youth club... That there is no such thing as 'neutrality' in relation to racism.
The key to defeating racism is our awareness and unity between groups and individuals who want to ACT against racism in Europe! This year once again hundreds of activities will take place all around Europe, organised by a wide variety of organisations. Activities range from demonstrations and debates to film festivals and from special TV programs to cleaning the walls of racist slogans.
A list of activities will be regularly updated on the UNITED site.
Find more background information on the themes and the poster of this years' campaign on the Campaign Site
UNITED co-ordinates the activities, functions as an information-point and distributes campaign material.

"DISSOLVING BARRIERS: INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE IN EUROPE"
UNITED Network Conference in Rieti (I) in English language
organised by UNITED for Intercultural Action, Associazione Rieti Immigrant (ARI) and an International Preparatory Group consisting of NGOs from different countries.
Refugees, detention centres, islamophobia, antisemitism, prejudice... The enlargement of the European Union has brought new opportunities for many, but it also creates new divisions and inequalities. The borders of Fortress Europe have moved but the inhumane migration and asylum policies are still tightening up... In the difficult international climate stereotypes are reinforced and the fear of the "other" is a serious problem in Europe today. The Conference will give an opportunity to think about solutions: to plan common actions and campaigns.
UNITED network conferences give anti-racist organisations the possibility to exchange ideas and provide them with knowledge and practical tools to combat prejudice, racism and conflicts in their own environment and in their own way.

"International Refugee Day 2005"
On 4th of December 2000 the General Assembly of the United Nations unanimously adopted a resolution to proclaim 20th of June as the World Refugee Day. Around this date activities in support of refugees will take place all over Europe.
Demonstrations, conferences, festivals and exhibitions will be organised.
Since several years UNITED has co-ordinated an international refugee campaign, which consists of two complimentary parts:
- Promoting a save environment for refugees and asylum seekers where they do not have to fear racism and intolerance.
- Protesting against the restrictive asylum policies, that are often referred to as "Fortress Europe": especially focusing attention on the deaths of more than 5000 people since 1993 who tried to find a save haven in Europe.
UNITED calls upon organisations to contribute to this awareness raising campaign. Keep the secretariat informed about your activities. A list of activities will be published and regularly updated on the UNITED site www.unitedagainstracism.org

International Day Against fascism and Antisemitism:
"Blow Fascism Away...
In 2005, the 60th anniversary of the end of the World War II was commemorated. Politicians and a lot of other people stated against hatred, fear, prejudice, discrimination and racism, which were the driving forces behind National Socialism. But fascist organisations all over Europe abused the commemoration in order to spread their ideology and to demonstrate their strength in a legitimised way.
A lot of reports in the last years showed that antisemitism as well as racism, xenophobia and discrimination of minorities are on the rise.
...Join the Movement"
The focus of this years campaign around the 9 November is to join forces and build a strong movement capable of fighting fascism in all its forms. Anti-fascist, anti-racist, Jewish and Roma organisations both inside and outside the UNITED network commemorate the "Kristallnacht", which took place on 9 November 1938. This partly state-organised pogrom against German Jews symbolises the beginning of the Holocaust. The commemoration has taken a new meaning as we remember not only the victims from 1938, but also campaign against rise of neo-nazism and racism in Europe today, and show support for the recent victims of racist and fascist attacks. If you decide to organise an event, please inform UNITED we will publish a List of Activities on Internet and we can provide you with free material, like posters and postcards. contact and more Information: UNITED for Intercultural Action, PB 413, NL-1000 AK Amsterdam,

"Bridging Cultures and Identities"
UNITED Network Conference in Cyprus in English language
Multicultural societies, "clash of cultures", choosing an identity...
The conflict situation around the world has an influence on how people are defining their own identities, how they see themselves in relation to their own culture and to others. Community and youth leaders who want to get involved in managing the conflicts, in building bridges between cultures, in creating a multicultural environment need to understand the problems, to discover new methods and useful tools and to get strengthened in their efforts.
On the other hand, the EU enlargement caused new divides in the European House, creating psychological and physical barriers where they didn't exist before. How to deal with the new situation, how to manage the new forms of migration, the development from national identity to European identity, all these questions will be approached from different perspectives, trying to formulate solutions.
