Government to launch anti-racism campaign

The Czech government’s Agency for Social Inclusion will launch a nationwide anti-racism campaign, its coordinator Jaroslav Valůch said on Wednesday. The campaign will start in the autumn, and will focus on people between 15 and 25 years of age. The agency is planning to use testimonies of victims of racially motivated violence to refute myths and disinformation about the country’s minorities. It will also work with schools, mainly in the depressed north Bohemia and Moravia-Silesia regions, Mr Valůch said. The project, covered mostly by EU funds, will last two years.
