Description

The antiracist Festival is an event organized by both locals and migrants with multi-national, multi-cultural and multi-lingual characteristics, it is a political action for promoting social equality for economic and political refugees who live in Greece and at the same time it is an act of solidarity to all those who are experiencing any kind of discrimination due to their nationality, skin-color, religious, sex and sexual orientation. The festival is the capstone of our antiracists activities (protests, intervention to authorities, solidarity events and networking) through out the year.

Its objective is to concentrate goals and actions of the antiracist movement and to highlight cultural ventures, alternative experiments of “opposition” and “creation”, forms of multi-national co-existence etc.

The Antiracist Festival of Athens (there are more festivals running at eight different Greek cities) started in 1996 and it is growing rapidly since then. During the 12th festival some 25,000 people attended and hundreds of local and foreign organizations of all kinds (antiracist, emigrants, minorities, feminists etc) participated.

This years 13th Antiracist Festival is focusing on the state’s restraining policy for refugees who enter through the Greek border and on the utter discriminations that, even “legal” emigrants are experiencing while living in Greece. It also highlights the social and cultural contribution of second generation emigrants and attempts, through jazz music and mainly by the New Orleans “Soul Rebels  Brass Band”, which stands actively by the victims of “Katrina”, to project the liberation power of critical artistic creativity.
