Fighting xenophobia
Thursday 23 March 2017

Lucha xenofobia


With the spread of racist attitudes and discourses at the core of democratic institutions, the mobilisation of civil society provides an essential bulwark for protecting the rights of stigmatised minorities. On 23 March at 3.30pm, several activists belonging to some of the most consolidated organisations in this field shared their experiences as part of the II MULTIHURI seminar series on racism, multidiscrimination and human rights. Ángel Galán, coordinator of the Movement against Intolerance in the Valencian Community, analysed the growing support for political projects based on the rejection of immigrants and defend the importance of neutralising the stereotypes that associate them with unemployment and delinquency. Mariana Yñurrigarro (CEPAIM) and Ana Fornés (Service of assistance to victims of racial or ethnic discrimination) explored the perspective of discrimination victims and redress mechanisms. Finally, Carolyn Phippard described the activities against xenophobia developed by Valencia Acoge, including theatrical performances and meetings between immigrants and decision-makers.
