ALBA Celebrates the International Day for People of African Descent
Today we celebrate the International Day for People of African Descent. We applaud the extraordinary contributions of the African diaspora in Scotland and strive to create a Scotland that eliminates all forms of discrimination against people of African descent.
ALBA Party General Secretary, Chris McEleny said:
“This day is a celebration of the enormous contributions of people of African descent to every field of human endeavour and Scottish society. It is a recognition of the profound injustices and systemic discrimination that people of African descent have endured for centuries, and continue to confront today.
It is essential that we continue to speak up – loudly and without fail – against any notion of racial prejudice and that we work tirelessly to free society from the blight of racism."
