Mixtape against Racism

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, is announced annually on March 21st. On that day, in 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 people at a peaceful demonstration in Sharpeville, South Africa, against the apartheid pass laws. 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!

Every year, March 21st marks “The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination”. In a joint initiative FAIRPLANET.org has teamed up with Tel Aviv-based SUAN.fm (Stayed Up All Night) to create the world’s longest crowdsourced mixtape in 2015.

602 people from 42 countries contributed 530 songs to give an universal statement against racism and discrimination. Click suan.fm/noracism to listen to the mixtape and check out the global Facebook event and Twitter #MixtapeAgainstRacism!
