CARTAGENIANS

MARCH AGAINST RACISM

The 20th of may in celebration of the abolition of slavery in Colombia, the citizens of Cartagena de Indias aware of their ancestral heritage as descendents of africans, marched pacificly with pride to make a statement against racism and all types and forms of discrimination that are still practiced in the city and the whole country.


MARCH AGAINST RACISM
MARCH AGAINST RACISM
More than 3.000 people of all ages, economic conditions, religions and races, came together to celebrate diversity and tolerance. This march organized by the Office of Ethnic Affairs and the Office of Ethnoeducation of the District of Cartagena was a good example to our society and all the afrodescendent community around the nation.

Even though there are people that belives this is a shallow act full of reverse discrimination and exclusión, the reality points and pretention of this march is to stablish new parameters of equality and social balance in behalf of the afrodescendent citizens to obtain the amount of recognition according to their numerical population and proportion of contribution to colombian society.

It´s obvious that people are becoming more aware, more awake to embrace their concience and identity. There are more afrodecendent participating actively to claim their rights, there are more people getting involved with out fear, resentless, and with no limits.
Now a days Cartagenians show one more time that they can be heroes as they used to be in the colonial and independence period, they are willing to make statements with their strength of soul just to make history turn around and set an example to bring down tirany and exclusion.
