Racism In Football And European Football Tournament In Israel

EDM number 640 in 2012-13, proposed by Bob Russell on 25/10/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Middle East, Racial discrimination and Sports.

That this House congratulates the Football Association for its Kick It Out campaign against racism in football; registers with profound disapproval, however, that the FA is prepared to participate in the European Under-21 football tournament to be played in Israel in June 2013, even though Israel is geographically not in Europe and isa country which has policies of racial apartheid against Palestinians; and therefore calls on the Government to support the Red Card Israeli Apartheid campaign which calls for this European football tournament to be played in Europe.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
