Spanish Post Office Service Correos Launches Collection Of Stamps Against Racial Discrimination.
Spanish postal service Correos has launched a collection of stamps that aims to “raise awareness about racial inequality and defend diversity, inclusion and equal rights”. The initiative, which has been baptized by the name of ‘Equality Stamps’, comes to the forefront in the European Month of Diversity and also coincides with the anniversary of the murder of George Floyd in the United States.
“The darker the stamp, the less value it will have, therefore, when making a delivery it will be necessary to use more black stamps than white”, Correos explained, saying that, in this way, “each letter and each shipment will be converted in a reflection of the inequality created by racism.”

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
