National Delegate Conference 17-20 June 2008

Show Racism the Red Card

by John Stevenson

Red CardScotland's long association with SRTRC, the anti-racist educational charity which uses football as a focus, is reflected in this motion. Support.

The annual Show Racism the Red Card (SRTRC) Fortnight of Action last year involved all of the Scotland's 42 professional football teams in anti-racist events at fixtures.

Stirling Council UNISON threw its weight behind the Fortnight of Action by sponsoring First Division newcomers, Stirling Albion.

The branch agreed to commission an advertising board at the club, which will enforce a strong anti-racist message.

In 2006 South Ayrshire commissioned three advertising boards enforcing our anti-racist message as well as sponsoring the Ayr United v Alloa Athletic match and ball The boards were sited at Somerset Park, Ayr. Portland Park, Troon. and Beechwood Park, Auchinleck. And John Stevenson got his fotie taken with Hearts' Craig Levein and Mark De Vries who later defected to Dundee United.
