International Migrants Day

December 18 is also know as a day of global action against racism

On December 18, 2000 the United Nations celebrated the first International Migrants Day (also known as the Global Day of Action Against Racism and for the Rights of Migrants, Refugees and Displaced People). The date was chosen to commemorate the UN's international convention in 1990 which protects the rights of migrants and their families. The day raises awareness about the human and labour rights of migrant workers.
