NEWS & REPORTING


Open your mind & speak out against racism

European-wide Action Week against Racism is on
T
he European-wide Action Week against Racism began on 17 March around Europe and will run until 25 March. This year the slogan is "Open your mind and speak out against racism". The Czech Helsinki Committee has issued a press release on this event, which is organized by the international UNITED network and supported by the various organizations around Europe conducting the anti-racism campaign. A video clip promoting the week in the Czech Republic can be seen here: http://www.romea.cz/romeatv/index.php?id=detail&source=t&vid=YZJgtcMmvB8&detail=YZJgtcMmvB8

21 March was established as the International Day for the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination by the General Assembly of the United Nations in response to the murder of 69 anti-apartheid demonstrators in Sharpeville, South Africa, in 1960. Ever since, thousands of people in Europe and around the world have been actively engaged on that day every year on behalf of equality, tolerance, and the celebration of diversity. The aim of the campaign is to draw attention to the issue of racism from an NGO perspective at local, national, and European level.
The Czech Helsinki Committee joined this year's campaign against racism in order to draw attention to the rise in hatred and intolerance in the Czech Republic. "We will hold a press conference on 21 March at which we will release the ENAR (European Network against Racism) Shadow Report on the state of racism in the Czech Republic and in Europe. The report on the Czech Republic was researched by the Czech Helsinki Committee and authored by Selma Muhič Dizdarevič and František Valeš," said Monika Bunžová, Second Vice-Chair of the ENAR Foundation (see http://www.enarfoundation.eu/about/article/board).
ENAR publishes a national Shadow Report on each EU Member State every year, as well as an EU-wide report reflecting on the phenomenon of racism. The new report will map the period between January 2010 and March 2011.
The director of the Czech Helsinki Committee, Markéta Kovaříková, said: "We have designed an exhibition of photographs taken at neo-Nazi demonstrations throughout the Czech Republic. The photographs were provided to us by the Tolerance a občanská společnost (Tolerance and Civil Society) civic association, which has long been involved in monitoring neo-Nazi activities in the Czech Republic. The exhibition will run from 19 – 20 April at the Sicily café on Senovážné nám. 2, Prague 1. We are also planning to disseminate an anti-racist video clip through social networks that was produced by our partner organization, ROMEA, and can be seen on our website and on Facebook."
Part of the International Day against Racism will include the LUCERNA PROTI RASISMU (LUCERNA AGAINST RACISM) program at the Lucerna complex in Prague. The program was designed by the OPONA public benefit company.
You will not be able to avoid the topic of racism at the Lucerna on Wednesday. In the afternoon there will be a screening of the film "The Last Flight of Peter Ginz", which reminds viewers of where social engineering has led us in the past and how it has blemished people's life stories. The screening is connected with an exhibition, entitled "Exhibition against Racism", which links the past to the present through the history of the Jewish and Romani minorities on Czech territory and investigates the media image of Romani people in detail. The texts on the media section of the exhibition were authored by František Kostlán of the ROMEA civic association.
The day will end with a concert against racism. Ester Kočičková and her "Aryan folk music" - with the catchy refrain "It's good they always pour us blondes a drink" ("Ještěže nám blondýnám vždycky nalejou") - will perform with the Tap Tap band. Tonya Graves will also sing. The evening will be closed by Radio 1's Gadjo.cz and a live show by Jam Sound System. For more information please see www.lucernaprotirasismu.cz

Editor's Mail

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
