No! to all forms of racism and discrimination
The Black Lives Matter and anti-racist protests that have erupted in cities around the world in the wake of the killing of George Floyd by a policeman in Minneapolis on 26 May is a long overdue call for action everywhere in order to once and for all bring an end to the systemic racism that prevails in so many countries across the globe.
The principle that “All human beings are born free and equal, in dignity and rights” is a fundamental pillar of the identity of our International since its origins and has always been at the forefront of the battle against all forms of discrimination, be it race, colour, ethnicity, culture, gender, class or religion. We are committed to continue our action at every level, nationally and internationally, to eliminate the scourge of racism and to remain vigilant so that all rights for all people everywhere are fully respected.
