Anti-racism ac­tion day

Evening Times - - NEWS -

ANTI-racism cam­paign­ers are urg­ing peo­ple to sup­port Show Racism the Red Card with a day of ac­tion next month.

Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 6, will be Wear Red Day to fundraise to sup­port work in schools and work­places.

Politi­cians at the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment have signed up to show their back­ing. Anas Sar­war Glas­gow Labour MSP said: “Scot­land is an open, di­verse and wel­com­ing coun­try, but the forces of ha­tred have not been si­lenced.

“Racism is a stain on our so­ci­ety, and I want to see it erad­i­cated so that the next gen­er­a­tion of Scots grow up in a more tol­er­ant na­tion.”
