The 9th Show Racism the Red Card Fortnight of Action in Scotland took place from the 12th – 31st October 2012. The 2012 Fortnight of Action again made a stand against both racism and sectarianism.
This time of concerted action across Scotland encourages community groups, schools and professional football clubs, amongst others, to positively engage with Show Racism the Red Card. A major aim of the Show Racism and Bigotry the Red Card Fortnight of Action was to encourage anti-racism / anti-sectarianism actions, events and initiatives to take place throughout the year.
The involvement of professional football clubs is central to Show Racism the Red Card’s method of engaging with positive anti-racism / anti-sectarianism messages. The Fortnight of Action is Scotland’s method of participation in UEFA partners Football Against Racism in Europe’s action weeks.
