Arrange a coach for the 6th September Protest in Cardiff to support Fair Play for Palestine
About the project
The funds raised will help pay for the coach taken to Cardiff with those protesting as part of the campaign, Fiar Play for Palestine.
The campaign, Fair Play for Palestine, part of Red Card Israeli Racism, is gathering in strength. But we need your help.
On September 6th Israel is playing Wales at the Cardiff City Ground and we must show them that they are not welcome.
Israeli PR is already working to promote its image as ‘good sports’. This match gives us a huge opportunity to say loud and clear that Israel is an apartheid state and must become a pariah state.
The Palestinian BDS movement calls for a sporting and cultural boycott. We need to keep the momentum going in support of the suspension of Israel from FIFA and UEFA.
Wales has drawn Israel in the qualifying round of the 2015/2016 UEFA Championships. There is no fair play in Israel, a country which is illegally occupying Palestine. Wales will be playing against a country which routinely prevents Palestinian people from playing football and competing in tournaments, a team which should be kicked out of UEFA and FIFA. The rules of FIFA and UEFA are clear that there should be freedom of movement for all players around the world and no racism in football. But Israel violates both principles with impunity.
The Campaign has the support of PCS and UNISON trade unions and other groups and this support is growing. We very much hope that you will be able to help finance the coach from the West Midlands.
