Anti-black racism on EU agenda for the first time
Brussels, 5 December 2017 – The European Union High Level Group on combating racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance is meeting today and will for the first time discuss the specific racism faced by people of African descent in the European Union. This is a major step forward in recognising the prevalence of Afrophobia and acting to combat it.
This high-level group was established to tackle and prevent hate crime and speech. Black people in Europe are particularly exposed to racist violence and hate speech.
