  • Submission from Show Racism the Red Card to Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality | Show Racism The Red Card
    2013 which was attended by young people from 25 schools from all over the country 140 schools participated up from 62 in the first year of the programme in 2010 P ictured Phil Mc Mahon Dublin Indira Kaljo Meteors Superleague Basketball team Diana Bunici RTE Cliodhna O Connor Dublin Ladies Kevin Kilbane ex Ireland Eoin Reddan Ireland rugby Jason Sherlock ex Dublin Does Anti Racism Education Work SRTRC carried out a before and after evaluation into attitudes of young people regarding issues around racism and diversity Below is a sample of questions we asked 60 2 nd year pupils in 3 community schools on the southside of Dublin Pictured An entry from Hollypark Girls National School to the SRTRC Creative Competition Should we treat people differently because of their religion Before our workshop 27 strongly agreed 42 agreed with this view and 19 disagreed and 2 strongly disagreed with this view After our workshop 18 disagreed and 82 strongly disagreed with this viewpoint Is being racist a good thing Before our workshop 2 strongly agreed 27 neither agree nor disagree 47 disagreed and 24 strongly disagreed After our workshop 13 disagreed and 87 strongly disagreed Should refugees and asylum seekers be allowed to live in Ireland Before our workshop 27 said yes 18 said no and 55 were not sure After our workshop 76 said yes and 24 said not sure Perceptions of refugees and asylum seekers Before our workshop 14 were neutral in their attitude 44 negative 42 positive view After our workshop 6 were neutral 2 negative 92 positive These figures confirm feedback from teachers as regards the impact of our resources The research shows that racism can be tackled but we must not be complacent and it involves intervention Integration and Anti Racism in schools SRTRC is able to reach 250 schools each year through their participation in the Anti Racism Creative Competition FAI Football Against Racism in Europe week and also responses to invitations from schools There are nearly 4 000 primary and second level schools in Ireland Clearly more is needed so as to have the impact required to challenges of diversity Does the curriculum reflect the diversity of modern Ireland Children from Poland and Britain present in significant numbers so how for example is history presented in books and teaching Does religious diversity present challenges within the patronage model of education and how should policy makers address these challenges Does staffing in education reflect the diversity of modern Ireland A diversity audit would prove useful for schools in Ireland to assess the situation Each school has its own board patron and independence To support implementation across all schools it would be useful for government to apply equality criteria in response to funding applications It cannot be assumed that because of diversity or because of highly skilled teachers that we do not need to be concerned about racism Racism is an ongoing challenge of the process of integration This survey shows that there is a lot of work to be done because we have not been able to reach the majority of young people in this country The survey shows that actual intervention is needed to make the change in promoting anti racism education Integration and Anti Racism in Sport Cases such as Luis Suarez and John Terry in England have given an increased profile to the issue of racism in sport The experience of racism in English football is much transformed from the experience of John Barnes Cyril Regis and others in the 1980s Changes to football legislation combined with the introduction of all seater stadia and a political willingness served by support to Show Racism the Red Card and the Kick It Out campaign have combined to assist this transformation In Ireland the FAI introduced a change to the rule book with rule 91 concerning the issue of racism This rule stipulates that a racist offence within the game should lead to at minimum a red card and a five match ban and or fine Supporters can face a ban of up to two years for incidents of racism A number of incidents have occurred with regards to rule 91and have involved investigations in to alleged experiences of racism These have resulted in match bans and fines for players in the Airtricity League and to fans being banned from grounds The FAI introduced the Football Intercultural Plan in 2007 which aimed to impact on the levels of integration of people from minority background at all levels of the game The plan offers a twin track approach of promoting integration and combatting racism Funding was provided by the Department of Justice but this has been cut back in the last two years SRTRC work closely with the Intercultural Co ordinator to ensure implementation of the plan The GAA introduced the Respect Campaign which aims to promote sporting behavior and addressing racism is within the remit of the Respect Campaign Also in 2009 the GAA introduced a policy change to stipulate the associations anti racism commitment in 2009 Those who infringe on this policy can face being charged with bringing the game into disrepute The case of Lee Chin served to highlight the issue of racism in GAA and resulted in the Wexford County board applying an 8 match ban to players involved and also a 26 match ban involving an umpire Since his case hit the headlines other cases have been investigated by county boards in Armagh concerning Aaron Cunningham Cavan concerning underage players and for Westmeath concerning minor county players These are the cases which we are aware of at the higher levels of the games The experience at the grassroots now needs attention Sport can serve to bring people together and the result of interaction through sport can serve to break down barriers A difficulty in responding to racism within sport is that sometimes allegations of racism can occur in the context of other offences For example a racist comment can provoke

  • Minister for Justice Alan Shatter TD speaks out against Racism | Show Racism The Red Card
    people in our schools communities sporting and social organisations is extremely important You all know that racism has no place in Ireland or in any country or society From your work on the projects that brought you all here today you will have learned more about the affect racism can have on individuals and communities You will be aware that racism denies people their basic human rights dignity and respect It is a complex issue and can be manifested in a number of ways ranging from acts of snubbing bullying and exclusion through to discrimination stereotyping institutional or systemic racism to acts of verbal abuse threatening behaviour and violence It is up to each and every one of us to play our part in confronting racism and in ensuring that we do not support or condone it in our schools and communities My Department through the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration has a cross Departmental mandate to develop lead and co ordinate integration policy across other Government Departments agencies and services However for integration to be really effective there must be a grass roots approach By that I mean that integration policies and practices must be pursued in the community in the home in the workplace and in the schools That is why your participation in this competition is particularly welcome as it brings awareness of the need for tolerance into our schools and from there to homes and to the wider community It is important that you pass on the lessons you have learned through your participation in this project to the people that you meet as you go about your daily lives My one simple message is do not tolerate intolerance We should celebrate difference not target or discriminate against any individual perceived to be different Most of you will be aware that on the 21st of March last which was the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination the world commemorated an event that took place in Sharpeville South Africa in 1960 where Police opened fire on a peaceful demonstration against racially discriminating laws in Sharpeville By designating a day to commemorate this horrific event attention is regularly focussed on the need to fight against racial discrimination wherever and whenever it occurs The theme for this year s commemoration is Racism and Sport This theme which was chosen by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights serves to highlight the problem of racism in sports as well as raising awareness of the role sports can play in combating racism and racial discrimination On any given weekend throughout the country it is clear to the observer that sport plays a huge part in peoples lives including in the lives of the new migrant communities in Ireland The composition of local soccer clubs GAA clubs basketball clubs and others shows the great diversity of cultures of both young and old coming together to share in the enjoyment of sport and of course
