Join the Twitter storm - Tell UEFA not to reward Israel for Gaza massacre
Sep 17, 2014 — 8:30pm UK time/10:30pm Jerusalem time - Wednesday September 17
The Twitter action will be using the existing tag #RedCardIsrael and a new tag #NoIsrael2020. Please do not share or Tweet using the new #NoIsrael2020 until the start of the action at 8:30pm UK time/10:30pm Jerusalem time.
The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) will on Friday decide whether or not to award Israel the right to host games in Jerusalem as part of major the UEFA 2020 championship.
As a letter to UEFA president Michel Platini from Palestinian sports teams and civil society organizations has explained: “By awarding the IFA the privilege of hosting the 2020 games in Jerusalem, UEFA would be sending a morally troubling message of approval - or even a reward for – Israel’s grave violations of human rights in Gaza, East Jerusalem and elsewhere.”
Join activists from across the world in bombarding UEFA with Tweets telling them not to award UEFA 2020 games to Israel.
