Solidarity with our friend and comrade in Bremen,
who has been taken into custody and been charged
because he is reputed to have fought with nazi scum.
Anti-fascism is always self-defense.
Repression is their weapon – solidarity is our strength.

Susma Haykır Passolige Hayır

Various Alerta groups have shown banners with „Susma Haykır – Passolig’eHayır!“ which means: „Do not be quiet – say NO to Passolig“.
In Turkey there is a law called 6222 which is based on a claim that prevents violence in terraces and it’s result is the card called Passolig. Fans have to buy this card to enter the grounds. At same time they have to give all their personal information to the state. Fans always have to fear this information could be used against them. Moreover this card is created by a private bank and if they buy it they are directly counted as the customer of this bank. Now most of fans move against this situation and they reject to get this card and so to enter the games. At the same time, constitutional process continues. While this process was continuing in consumer court, now it is carrying on supreme court on the grounds that the card violate the human rights. The fans are waiting for beginning of this court. Until the beginning they are doing demonstrations, protests, talks etc. They want and need to increase awareness of people about this card.
As members of Alerta Network, we want to join the protests and to show our solidarity with our comrades in Turkey. This so-called fan card will completely distroy Turkish football is a development agianst fan culture. We would like to express our full solidarity with the Turkish fan culture and support the fight against these unacceptable change in the allocation of tickets to football games.
No to Passolig !

8th Antiracist Tournament Sankt Pauli

42-The-Antira-Picture-All-Colours-Are-Beautiful-

In the end, organizers, participants and visitors were unanimous: The 8th Antira Sankt Pauli was a great success. It was held from 30 May to 1 June in Millertor Stadium.

The tournament had different winners: For men it was a mixed team of Ultrà Sankt Pauli and Green Brigade.
In the women’s the teams of Republica Internationale (Leeds) and the Easton Cowgirls (Bristol) separated in the final with a friendly draw. The game of Antira All-Stars against FC Lampedusa on Saturday afternoon was also very important.

We were very happy about a guest from Sweden: Showan from Malmö. He was invaded by Nazis in March this year and he is seriously injured. He took the opportunity to travel to the tournament to Hamburg.

But not only football was played over the three days. The entire event was marked by networking. Numerous workshops with fans and ultras from all over Europe, Israel and Turkey took place. All of us were able to exchange our experiences and activities. Central topics were the rise of the right wing in Europe, the role of football fans in social conflicts and the displacement of fan groups who work against discrimination in the stands. During the weekend it was the anniversary of the outbreak of Gezi protests in Turkey. The Turkish comrades hold a very moving memorial speech for those who were killed.

An impressive sign was set by the participants with the big march towards anti-racist concert in the Rote Flora on Saturday. It stood for the political solidarity of European anti-racist football fans with the Rote Flora in Hamburg.

Because of the positive feedback it will be discussed to maintain the one-day football break in future tournaments and to focus more on the content of the framework program. In addition the organizers want to increase the number of women’s teams at the tournament and further enhance networking among female participants in the Antira as well as in the European anti-fascist ultrà network Alerta!
