CULE Statement for March 21, the International Day for the Elimination of Racism

In October 1966 the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed March 21, the International Day for the Elimination of Racism.

Since the proclamation of this day, the world continues to see the rise of racism in every corner of the earth.  Racism continues to invade our consciousness, via the various news media.  We continue to see people killed based on race and class, we continue to see discrimination in the education system and workplaces based on race and class.

In Canada we are unwilling witnesses to the double standard that the present government uses in addressing the disappearance of our Aboriginal sisters.  We are forced to listen to the Conservative Government label people terrorist because of race and class.

CULE is committed to fighting all forms of racism and injustice within the workplace and the larger community.  We call on all CULE members to continue the fight to eliminate racism within the workplace and the larger community.
