Mexico observes National Day Against Discrimination

With the purpose of promoting the elimination, from all spheres of society, of the attitudes that affect the rights and freedoms under equal conditions, due to prejudices, stereotypes and stigmas, October 19th marks the National Day Against Discrimination.

In accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights, without any distinction”, in Mexico the principle of equality and the right to non-discrimination for all persons is recognized in Article 1 of the Mexican Constitution.

According to the Ministry of the Interior, on October 19, 1810, on instructions from Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, the intendant and military commander of the insurgent forces of the city of Valladolid today Morelia, José María Anzorena, promulgated the first camp abolished slavery in Mexico.

He noted that in 2010 the date was established in a decree of the federal Executive to commemorate the National Day against Discrimination.

It determined: “Any discrimination motivated by ethnic or national origin, gender, age, disabilities, social condition, health conditions, religion, opinions, sexual preferences, marital status or any other condition is prohibited. ”

The decree emphasized the importance of promoting, respecting, protecting and guaranteeing the human rights of all people, since the recognition of the superior value of human dignity is the basis and condition of all fundamental rights.
