Show Racism the Red Card Scotland is delighted that GMB Scotland are getting involved with our annual Fortnight of Action. GMB Scotland have kindly sponsored a SRtRC Banner for all 42 professional clubs in Scotland. This will see players taking to the field to hold up the banner prior to kick off to support our message of anti-racism.
The support GMB Scotland give us is incredible not only during the Fortnight of Action but throughout the year.
We would like to thank everyone at GMB Scotland for their continued support.
GMB Scotland Secretary Gary Smith said:
“Now more than ever the work of SRtRC needs to be promoted and supported because ignorance, inequality and intolerance are increasingly prevalent.
“We need look no further than the appalling scenes in the Unites States recently where neo-Nazis and supremacist militias stormed the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia.
“History has shown it would be naïve to think this can’t happen in our country so we cannot be complacent about the challenges facing us as a society – and let’s be clear that these challenges exist in Scotland as they do everywhere else.
“The awareness and education that SRtRC delivers in our schools and communities is absolutely crucial in tackling discrimination at the grassroots level.
“GMB Scotland couldn’t be more proud to support the Fortnight of Action initiative this October and indeed the work of SRtRC all year round.”
