The 7th annual Fortnight of Action in Scotland will take place form Friday 15th to Sunday 31st October 2010. This period of concerted action encourages participation from all sections of Scotland’s communities to celebrate diversity and tackle racism.
The 2009 Fortnight of Action built on the success of previous years with over 600 actions involving BAME organisations, community organisations, all 42 professional football clubs, football fans, schools and young people nationwide, with community initiatives growing in terms of diversity and reach. All ties in the 2nd round of the Scottish Cup, the SWPL, the SWFL and the SJFA all joined with us alongside the SFA's Youth Initiative and Youth Cup.
This October, we hope to build on the success of previous years and once again expand the number and quality of anti-racist projects taking place during the Fortnight. It is essential that these actions act as a catalyst for further anti-racist initiatives.
