The fortnight of action will come to an end tomorrow. Over the last two weeks there have been anti-racism/ anti-sectarianism actions at all levels of football & society
Show Racism the Red Card would like to thank everyone who has taken action during the Fortnight of Action to promote anti-racism and anti-sectarianism.
We are confident that these actions will act as a catalyst for further anti-racism/ anti-sectarianism action throughout the year.
The grant-funded events have been a great success encouraging communities across Scotland to come together to tackle all forms of racism and sectarianism, highlighting that we all have a role to play. (Pictured above, Budhill Family Learning Centre, Glasgow - Fortnight of Action Grant Funded Event).
The anti-racism/ anti-sectarianism actions at Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League clubs' fixtures across the fortnight have been the most high profile to date, generating great exposure for the campaign and our key messages.
Neil Lennon, Celtic FC Manager said: "We are an open club and we have been since the club was formed 125 years ago.
"I have a zero tolerance rule. I have spoken to the players about this before.
"Any sign of any sort of racism against colour, religion, background will be an instant sackable offence.
"I don't have to really speak to my players about that. The spirit and respect they have for each other is tremendous but they have been made well aware of that before.
"There is no place for that [discrimination] in the game and there never should have been.
"At this club we see everyone as equal and all I see are footballers and men and we treat them that way."
Show Racism the Red Card looks forward to the William Hill Scottish Cup Competition 2012/ 2013 Round Three Fixtures this weekend which will promote our anti-racism and anti-sectarianism messages.
