OPIN-2021-0194 Rivals on the Pitch - United Against Racism (e) Tabled on 05/03/2021

This Senedd:

a) welcomes the ‘Rivals on the Pitch - United Against Racism’ initiative by Swansea City and Cardiff City football fans as part of a new anti-racism campaign.

b) commends fans of both teams showing their collective opposition to racism by sending in a video of themselves taking the knee or by delivering an anti-racism message before the south Wales derby on 20 March 2021.

c) notes that football players will take the knee in support of Black Lives Matter, a recognition that, historically and up to the present day, black lives have not been treated as being equal to white lives.
