The annual ‘Walk Against Discrimination (WAD) 2023’ will be held at Syntagma Square in central Athens on Tuesday (March 21), International Day against Racism.

More than 100 organizations of civil society are supporting WAD 2023, representing people with special needs, the LGBTQI+ community, the Roma, migrants, HIV-positive people, the elderly, people with mental disorders, and religious minorities, among many others.

Unlike other years, organizers said, “this year we will not walk, we shall remain standing at the place we rally, as a protest against the lack of progress in human rights issues in Greece. We are immobile but standing up, holding high the baton of human rights, despite their trials.”

Every year WAD culminates in the awarding of the ‘Tzanetos Antipas Anti-Racism Award’ to an entity or individual, and this year it will be presented to the Greek Helsinki Monitor (GHM), Greece’s anti-discrimination and free-speech protection non-governmental organization since 1993.

WAD 2023 is organized by the Greek Forum of Migrants together with the Racist Violence Recording Network (RVRN), the Hellenic League for Human Rights (HLHR), the PRAKSIS (Programs of Development, Social Support & Medical Cooperation) non-profit organization, the Transgender Support Association in Greece and Golden Dawn Watch.
