Helsinki 27-28 June 2005 Show racism the red card! – Networking and exchange of experience
Monday June 27th
Nordic cooperaton so far (Henrik):
Since last seminar in Copenhagen we have been told that the Nordic council of Ministers do not have funds for our work except the ETNORDEN program where youth groups can get funding to arrange seminars. However, FARE hope to set aside some of the Nike wristbands money to support the Nordic campaigns, but we do not know how much this could be as of yet.
The web site of the Nordic cooperation is up and running, mainly presenting the contacts of each national initiative. Each campaign can get access to this site by contacting SRTRC Norway.
The Swedish and Danish campaigns got a set of their own big red cards (from the FARE budget) and will be posted a box of 1000 cards each.

Show racism the red card: Networking and exchange of experience
Summary of Seminar
Feb. 1st and 2nd , 2005
Show racism the red card originated in England 10 years ago. In 2000 Norwegian People’s Aid and the Norwegian Players Union in Norway launched a similar campaign with great success. Youth groups of NPA co-ordinated activities at the Premier League arenas, handing out red cards with anti-racist messages to spectators and organised so that the football players showed racism the red card before the match. The campaign has also moved out to schools and tournaments for kids/youth where players and project staff address the issue of racism.
