21 March – International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination

Fabricanti’s contribution to celebrate the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination observed annually on 21 March.

On that day, in 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 people at a peaceful demonstration against apartheid in Sharpeville, South Africa. Proclaiming the day in 1966, the United Nations General Assembly called on the international community to redouble its efforts to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination.
