  • Interview with FAI Intercultural Officer | Show Racism The Red Card
    the biggest challenge of the post There are a number of challenges all with their own importance I think the overriding challenge is to create an inclusive environment within football so that people can feel comfortable to participate the spin off from this is that we can increase participation levels from Minority Ethnic Groups Allied to this the need to put in place some proactive preventative measures to challenge and remove racism from football What would you consider success will be and how is it measured More players coaches supporters officials refs and volunteers from minority ethnic groups Implementation the UEFA 10 point plan within all Eircom league clubs local clubs and a general environment in Irish football that supports diversity I hope to measure success by firstly establishing some bench marks around participation with regards to the UEFA 10 point plan I would anticipate that clubs leagues and other affiliates will reflect their commitment to the plan by setting this out in their constitutions and by establishing an equality policy which is routinely monitored What differences do you consider in addressing intercultual activities in Ireland as compared to Britain Cultural diversity on the scale seen over the last 10 yrs is new to Ireland this presents the real opportunity to plan for diversity and integration to be proactive as appose to reactive What team do you support in UK and in the Eircom League In the UK for my sins I support Spurs I suppose in Ireland not necessarily based on play but I would have to say geographically Galway United What are you doing in the job now Networking and to establish partnerships with various agencies both statutory and non statutory I anticipate that some of these will act as good resource for the upcoming consultation process that will inform the strategic plan for the FAI I am also working with specific NGO s to support their work where possible Currently I have started the process of evaluating training needs within the FAI with regards to anti racism training and will be putting a training strategy together either as part of the consultation process or separately I anticipate that over the next few months that I will be spending a good deal of time working with clubs to help them implement the 10 point plan What do you think about Show Racism the Red Card SRTRC has huge potential both in terms as an organization that seeks to raise people s awareness of the issue as well as acting as a barometer of racism within sport Allied to its promotional awareness raising work is its potential to influence the attitudes and beliefs of both young and old in this regard its work to construct an educational DVD programme perhaps sets it apart from mere promotion and positions it as educational resource This entry was posted in News Events Bookmark the permalink Racism in Romanian football First Season of Intercontinental League Search for Recent Posts Football Against Racism actions

  • Racism in Romanian football | Show Racism The Red Card
    to go The political class and the Romanian President proved their commitment to kicking racism out of football Racists need to be told to shut up and it is up those who really love football who have the responsibility to tell them A short history of incidents in 2005 On 13 April during a game between Steaua Bucharest and Rapid Bucharest Steaua s supporters use anti Gypsy chants We have always hated gypsies we have always urinated on you and Stinky Gypsies After the game Gabi Safta the presenter at the home games of Steaua Bucharest verbally abused the coach of Rapid Razvan Lucescu whom he called a stinky Gypsy After the match the observer of the Romanian Football League Valentin Alexandru declared The game was played in normal conditions he added everything happens you the media blow it out of proportion what if they played those songs on the stadium speakers Gypsies and the UFO s was played during the intermission those are songs sung by those a little bit darker Both teams were fined by the National Council Against Discrimination following the incidents On 6 September UEFA s president Lennart Johannson says to a British newspaper following racism during a round of UEFA games We are concerned about racism particularly in Bulgaria and Romania A few days later UEFA announced that it would increase the initial fine for racist incidents during an UEFA game against Shelbourne Steaua Bucuresti s stadium is suspended for the next UEFA game This is the first time a stadium is suspended for racism by UEFA As a result an enormous scandal erupts in the Romanian press which sees a remarkable turn around of the Romanian media against racism in sports as it starts reporting on racist incidents Valentin Alexandru from the Romanian Football League declared that there is no racism in the stadiums and that them the Roma are a shame for our country Cristi Bivolaru the head of international relations at the Romanian Football Federation FRF and an observer for the European football authority UEFA stated The English had two crows 3 in their team and the spectators in the stadium made crow sounds They made crow sounds to the crows That was all UEFA fined them for that there is no way there are major problems with racism as Johansson said In a report in October the European Commissions sent an uncharacteristically clear and no nonsense signal to Romania The Romanian authorities should demonstrate at all levels that the country applies a zero tolerance policy on racism against Roma or against any other minority or group and that this policy is effectively implemented 4 On 23 October Steaua and Rapid Bucuresti played for the Romanian Championship A banner referring to zero tolerance for gypsies Last chance for Romania zero tolerance was displayed 5 The gallery chanted We hate the crows suspend us and displayed a huge banner representing a crow Racist chants against Roma directed to the Roma player of Steaua
