  • Minister minimises level of racism | Show Racism The Red Card
    is woefully underreported in Ireland and the state agencies do not have the systems in place for collecting accurate statistics The Minister would be better advised to monitor research from the ESRI which found in 2006 that one in three immigrants to Ireland had experienced racism He could also talk to local election candidates from immigrant backgrounds including Patrick Maphoso in Dublin Innter City Tendai Madondo in Tallaght and others who reported racist abuse both verbal and physical during their campaign In regards to education the Minister would be advised to listen to the Teachers Union of Ireland which found that 25 of teachers had witnessed racism in their classroom in the previous month to their conference this year Addressing racism is crucial to promoting integration The Ministers statement show a dangerous complacency in regard to racism especially considering the nature of the economic crisis at the moment and further to the closure of the government s own National Action Plan Against Racism In addition people experiencing discrimination will be dissuaded from pursuing cases through the equality authority and the tribunal because it is taking longer to process cases The data is there when it comes to asking immigrants about their experience of racism One can only conclude that there are a variety of systemic failures as to why only 180 incidents were reported in 2008 I would urge the Minister to talk to those affected and those at the front line and invest in developing a coherent anti racism policy which involves both appropriate sanctions and a programme of education Ignoring racism does not make it go away and nor does it suport a genuine policy of integration This entry was posted in News Events Bookmark the permalink Famine song racist the law says LOVE MUSIC HATE RACISM IRELAND

  • Famine song racist- the law says | Show Racism The Red Card
    was filmed singing sectarian songs During the appeal Mr Findlay argued that a football match was an organised breach of the peace and for many supporters an exchange of pleasantries in the form of abuse is part and parcel of going to the game He also argued that the Famine Song which contains the chorus the famine is over why don t you go home was not racist but an expression of political opinion permitted under the European Convention on Human Rights Offensive sentiment But Lord Carloway who heard the appeal with temporary judges Alastair Dunlop QC and Brian Lockhart QC said Presence inside a football stadium does not give a spectator a free hand to behave as he pleases There are limits and the appellant s conduct went well beyond those limits Referring to the Famine Song the senior judge said The court does not consider that the lyrics of this refrain bear any reasonable comparison to those of Flower of Scotland or indeed God Save the Queen Rather they are racist in calling upon people native to Scotland to leave the country because of their racial origins This is a sentiment which many persons will find offensive Lord Carloway added that the appeal judges had no difficulty in accepting the sheriff s conclusion that singing the song s chorus displays malice and ill will towards people of Irish descent living in Scotland This entry was posted in News Events Bookmark the permalink Death threat for anti racism campaigner Minister minimises level of racism Search for Recent Posts Football Against Racism actions Come to our Tackling Racism seminar on November 17th One Race the Human Race exhibition open now One Race Exhibition launches nationwide tour One Race Human Race Exhibition 2015 16 Archives October 2015 September 2015 August 2015

  • BNP elections – A warning for all | Show Racism The Red Card
    100 council seats a member of the London Assembly and now a seat in the European Parliament The BNP was formed in 1983 emerging out of remnants of the National Front In 1993 50 000 demonstrated outside its Welling Headquarters in south east London following the murders of Stephen Lawrence and three other young people from minority ethnic backgrounds In Ireland in 1995 the Ireland Vs England game was cancelled after a riot broke out instigated by BNP supporters The rise of Nick Griffin as leader of the BNP saw the party learn from far right counterparts in other European countries That is they took themselves off the streets and out of the stadiums and into the electoral field If the BNP wanted to distance itself from nazism the last person it should have chosen as a candidate is Andrew Brons Brons 61 started his nazi career in the National Socialist Movement an organisation that was deliberately founded on Hitler s birthday by Colin Jordan the British nazi leader who died in April aged 85 NSM members were responsible for an arson campaign against Jewish property and synagogues in the 1960s Brons appears to have approved In a letter to Jordan s wife Brons reported meeting an NSM member who mentioned such activities as bombing synagogues He declared On This subject I have a dual view in that I realise that he is well intentioned I feel that our public image may suffer considerable damage as a result of these activities I am however open to correction on this point The BNP leadership does not believe Britain should have fought Hitler BNP leader Nick Griffin does not even believe the Holocaust happened The BNP have been exposed several times for harbouring criminals within their ranks http www hopenothate org uk
