Background to the protest
The Israeli national team is playing Wales in Cardiff on 6 September in the qualifying round of the men’s EURO 2016 competition. Israel uses sport as a way to present itself as a “normal” European state. It uses sport to whitewash its racism against the Palestinians, just as South Africa did under apartheid. And just as people in South Africa did, activists are taking a stand.
Sporting events have become a key battleground – the Israeli state is losing its legitimacy and it knows it. The sporting boycott is gaining ground and we have the power to keep the momentum going. People are already mobilising for a major rally in Cardiff. Let’s make this as big as possible to send the message that Israeli racism should not be tolerated.
