  • Show Racism the Red Card response to Irish Daily Star article | Show Racism The Red Card
    about trying to stop racism but instead just punish it We disagree The high profile of incidences in sport and the role of the media is very important When incidences are highlighted in the media then people can see the responses For Show Racism the Red Card we are able to show that young people can report incidences if and when they do occur because action can be taken Challenging a culture of silence on the part of young people who are reluctant to tell adults in authority is key When Luis Suarez and John Terry were reported no one thinks badly of Rio Ferdinand or Patrice Evra but the rules at the top level of the game apply at the grassroots as well That is why the FAI Intercultural Programme and Show Racism the Red Card are available to speak to clubs leagues and referees to inform them that there is a 5 match ban and fine penalty for racism within soccer We applaud the GAA in Wexford who took robust action against racism and barred an umpire for 26 weeks this Summer This is good for a programme like ours so that we can inform young people that they should expect that if they report racism action will be taken We believe that there is a dual approach to tackling racism It should involve fines and penalties where appropriate and combined with a programme of education If we work to promote education against racism we will reach far more people than simple punitive action following an incident It is also important to promote the right culture within a school sporting organisation or other group so that young people feel comfortable reporting and challenging racism as it occurs 45 of teachers attending the Teachers Union of Ireland conference in

  • State did nothing to save Jews, says Shatter | Show Racism The Red Card
    the exclusive property of fascism In the extremities of their sweeping arcs right wing extremism left wing extremism and religious fundamentalism intersect in their readiness to spread this lethal prejudice Iran s president Ahmadinejad has repeatedly threatened a nuclear holocaust against Israel while denying the Shoah Moreover modern anti Semitism obsessively singles out Israel for disproportionate forms of condemnation that barely conceal a denial of Israel s right to exist Mr Shatter said it was a severe indictment of the international legal and political order that President Bashar al Assad remained in power in Syria and was able to engage in the mass murder of Syrian people with impunity It is morally absurd that Ahmadinejad still rules Iran an active denier of the Shoah who has promised to use nuclear missiles to turn Israel to smoke and ash And the silence of so many of the non aligned states in the face of his threats must surely undermine their moral authority to speak on important issues of international concern said Mr Shatter The Minister recalled how Wallenberg who came from a Swedish banking dynasty responded to the invitation to go to Hungary on a special diplomatic mission in 1944 to save as many Jews as possible Raoul Wallenberg had the option to sit out World War Two safe in neutral Sweden But for him not to act against the genocidal evil would have been passively to accept that evil For him omitting to act would itself have amounted to the wrongful action of acquiescence So he answered yes when he was asked to go to Budapest He could not be a bystander to evil As the Red Army advanced Wallenberg left Budapest to meet it and brief commanders on what to expect when they entered the city He was never seen again and is presumed to have died in Russian custody His unlawful forced disappearance was itself a crime against humanity Mr Shatter added RAOUL WALLENBERG HERO OF HOLOCAUST RAOUL WALLENBERG was a Swedish architect and businessman who went on a special diplomatic assignment to Hungary in 1944 in order to save as many Jewish lives as possible Wallenberg was born in 1912 to a comfortable banking family He was approached by a humanitarian organisation who asked him to go to Hungary where Jews were being rounded up and sent to the death camps Sweden gave him a diplomatic passport and appointed him as legion secretary at the Swedish legation in Budapest In July 1944 he arrived in Budapest with 650 protective passports for Jews He developed a special protective Swedish passport the Schutzpass whose avowed purpose was to render the holder immune to deportation This action saved about 20 000 Jews With US money he rented 30 buildings He designated them extraterritorial buildings under a Swedish flag to give their residents safe houses He placed some 35 000 Jews in these buildings He also stopped the Nazis from massacring some 50 000 Jews Israel declared Wallenberg a Righteous Gentile
