"Remember" 9th of November 2014.
Taking place in Kryoneri Korinthias (GR).
Organized by “Filoxenia, Intercultural-Environmental Organisation"
Themes: intolerance, ignorance, fascism, antisemitism, racism.
As every year, once again we took part in the “International Day Against Fascism and Antisemitism” and we gave a hand to this 9th of November United Campaign. Our participation was supported by European volunteers (EVS “European Voluntary Service” from Hungary and Turkey) and by local volunteers and local people.
Our action included different activities that raise awareness against fascism, racism, intolerance with young people at local school Gymnasium in Kryoneri Korinthias.
The workshop started by prepared Presentation of "9th November, Remember" made by young volunteers. This presentation summarize history and present current situations of Fascism and Antisemitism in their countries. This was a starting tool for discussion with youngsters.
Young people got to the topic easily and this helped us for open dialog between us.
The next step was activity “Portraits” and “Group Dance” (Turkish) prepared by young volunteers, which helped us to broke stereotypes and prejudice with young people and understand the value of diversity and that all together we can make changes for better life.
We think that students got new informations and the most important is that we made them “to think about”. This is important because young people are our future!
