Fifty years after the UN-Convention against racism, the work is not finished, at all. The un-convenient truth is that, until today, racial discrimination, hate speech and hate crimes are very present in our
societies. Even if there is a role for everyone to combat racism, the burden is on the shoulders of our political leaders to improve and enforce legislation and to promote a more equal and just society.
