It is obvious that racism exists in Sweden, as well as in other countries. It is even more obvious after the last election in Sweden.
Racism is not a new phenomenon, and resistance against racism and mobilization for antiracism have always been there in the history of racism.
Another Development Foundation was one among many organisations that supported the manifestation ”Umeå for Antiracism” Saturday 8th.
These were the organisers besides of ADF: Rättighetscentrum Västerbotten, Vän i Umeå, ABF, Skuggteatern, Aktion i Umeå för Afghanerna, Studiefrämjandet, Icke Våld 2022, Studieförbundet Vuxenskolan, RUNG, Folkuniversitetet Västerbotten, Läkare mot rasism, Studieförbundet Bilda, Ålidhemskyrkan/Svenska kyrkan i Umeå, Såhkie – Umeå sameförening, Sensus studieförbund DIKKO, Ögonblicksteatern, Kyrkan på Campus, Regionbibliotek Västerbotten, IM Umeå, BRIS.
Our aim is to expand the network and to mobilise for antiracism in Umeå.
The manifestation was only the first step to be continued. Another Development Foundation will be a part of, and support, this mobilisation.
Racism is unacceptable.
