Earth Charter Think Tank

March 21st is International Day Against Racism and at the same time World Poetry Day. It's no coincidence that Salman Rushdie already knew: "Language is courage: the ability to conceive a thought, to speak it, and thereby to make it true." 

On this special day in Warburg we would like to recite thoughts, verses and poems against racism.

PS: Backgrounds for March 21st
March 21, 1960 is the day of the Sharpville Massacre (South Africa), in which 69 demonstrators were shot dead and hundreds injured. The day means retrospectively a turning point for South Africa, the UN Security Council sharply condemned the procedure and demanded the end of apartheid. With the result that South Africa left the Commonwealth of Nations. Only in 1994 did the first free elections take place in South Africa and on March 21, 1996 Nelson Mandela signed the new South African constitution. March 21 has been celebrated as the International Day Against Racism (UN) since 1966. March 21st is also World Poetry Day (UNESCO).
