Update on January 07, 2013

Hey petition-signers,

Thanks for taking the time to visit this page and to sign my petition. I've been following European football for years, including seeing a few matches in the historic Santiago Bernabeu, and I've witnessed some racism in the stands firsthand. I truly believe Kevin-Prince Boateng's decision to walk off the pitch last week was a brave and courageous move.

Unfortunately, FIFA President Sepp Blatter has now taken a similar position to UEFA Chief Michael Platini and has specified that teams may be subject to forfeiting games if this happens again. I don't believe this is the right strategy. Help me get to 1000 signatures so we can show the governing bodies of European football that we stand with players who want to end racism now.

Please send this to your network and friends through:
1) Facebook
2) Twitter
3) Email
4) Tumblr

Thanks!
Alex
