On the 17th of December 2012, the United Nations General Assembly announced the 5th of September as the International Day of Charity – motivated by the need to commemorate the anniversary of Mother Teresa of Calcutta’s passing.
The International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief does not shift blame onto the content of religion and belief as inherently confrontational and violent, but it recognises that the adoption of religion and belief as primary motivators for violence against victims should be condemned and discouraged.
June marks the commencement of Pride Month – a celebration of Queerness in all its forms. The theme of Pride 2022 is Politics in Art and, indeed, art provokes the liberation of one’s soul, and encourages people to go further. Liberation, more than ever, is of utmost importance after the exposure of a multitude of forms of social domination following the COVID-19 pandemic.
