  • Football united to tackle Racism – Warsaw conference | Show Racism The Red Card
    the game is often dictated by fear When a racist incident occurs clubs immediately say that they can t do anything to punish the perpetrators So we need courageous people who will take action when these things happen I see a lot of people like that gathered here today His sentiments were echoed by UEFA first vice president Şenes Erzik who earlier in the day said I think you will all agree with me that football extends beyond borders irons out differences and unleashes people s passion You who on a day to day basis lead the fight to reduce discrimination and increase respect in football and in society as a whole you know how difficult it is to mobilise people around an idea even one as exciting and worthy as our commitment to combating discrimination in all its forms The conference hosted by UEFA was supported by the network of footballing anti racism campaigns FARE Football Against Racism World Players Union FIFPro and the Polish Football Association A new DVD produced by FIFPro in associaiton with Show Racism the Red Card was shown It features Thierry Henry Samuel Eto o Ryan Giggs Didier Drogba Rio Ferdinand Lillian Thuram Kolo Toure and Mido giving their views on their experiences of racism in football A screening of the FARE Unite Against Racism documentary filmed on location during the Euro 2008 was shown to highlight the positive work the network had undertaken with UEFA with General Secretary David Taylor commenting on what a success the tournament had been With only some minor exceptions the behaviour of the fans of the national teams could not be faulted and for me it was truly inspiring to see how the various nationalities combined and intermingled in the fan zones and in the stadiums That is what football should be about not antagonism not abuse not violence simply a celebration of our sport and the commitment of football fans to supporting their national team and club Over 300 people then dispersed to take part in a range of workshops covering nationalism anti semitism and the issue of the roma minority groups The majority of workshops were prepared coordinated and chaired by FARE members The day concluded with a players panel chaired by ex Manchester Utd and Tottenham Hotspur player Garth Crooks who was joined by Paul Elliott the first black player to captain Chelsea FC Other players on hand to spark the debate included Papa Samba Ba from MKS Znicz Pruszków Vladimír Sendrei of Roma public policy institute and Roger Guerreiro currently a Poland international playing for Legia Warszaw The FAI Intercultural Co ordinator Des Tomlinson Show Racism the Red Card Co ordinator Garrett Mullan and Brian Kerr representing Sport Against Racism in Ireland were in attendance from Ireland The latest high profile footballer to pledge his support to FARE Spain European Championship winner Marcus Senna sent a message of support via video link You can view this on http www farenet org default asp intPageID
