On March 21, 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 people who were peacefully demonstrating against apartheid laws in the township of Sharpeville, South Africa. The United Nations General Assembly subsequently declared March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and called on the international community to commemorate that tragedy and work together to combat racism and discrimination wherever they exist.
This is Grande Prairie’s third participation in the commemoration of this annual day.
