"Football is permeable to the social state. We are currently experiencing an increase in intolerance due to multiple factors and it is reflected in this sport. And that comes to the pitch with racist and xenphobic messages and with attitudes of violence, of hostility towards the opposing team, towards the players, towards the referees … And we must not forget about the collegiate women who have been the recipients of brutal sexist and retrograde insults, "said Esteban Ibarra, president of the Movement against Intolerance.
Complaints and complaints …
"My son is not a soccer player because of racism."It says Yay Tour in L'Equipe.
"As I caught you, I violate you!". A UD fan Janda threatened a 16-year referee assistant.
"I do not believe that the origin is in the same field of play. Athletes generally have a behavior, in their 99.9%, quite exemplary. Nor are the clubs that are currently encouraging the growth of these intolerance behaviors, and I say intolerance, because it's not just racism, "explains Ibarra.
"The ultras are not alien to the manipulation of extremist ideological groups. Radicals do not go to the faculty of philosophy, but instead recruit where there is anonymity, but also attitudes of anger, belligerence, hostility … All extremists are whatever color they are, from ultra-right, ultra-left or ultra-nationalist, they will go to the ultras, "he continues.
"In football, as we have seen in the match between Barcelona and Real Madrid, politics is projected, that is, politics in its radical sense. And the reproach is that the Law is not applied firmly. The Law against racism and the intolerance we have is a great Law, one of the most advanced in Europe. The reproach is that if these types of behaviors are not stopped from the beginning of the law, they will continue to grow, "says the president of the Movement against Intolerance.
Ibarra gives two examples that have happened recently in Spain to explain his argument: "We have seen in the match between Rayo Vallecano and Albacete a firm application of the Law with the suspension of the meeting. But a few days later we found a fine ridiculous that it has been applied to Barcelona for putting a banner that was a violation of the law. How do you interpret it? Like there are different measuring sticks. "

"It is essential to educate, apply the Law and create a very strong social and media involvement to demand a goal: that politics is outside the football stadiums," says Ibarra, who continues: "We will have to tell the ultras that they learned from the players, the soccer players have a high level of fraternity, and all this is facilitated by professionalism, a player today is in one club and tomorrow in another, one day he plays with blgaros, africans and tomorrow he has teammates any other area of the world on another team. Soccer players are used to diversity. "
"How can one be educated for coexistence in the sports field? What should be encouraged a lot from children's categories is the encounter between clubs, that is, so that there would be a lot of brotherhood and fellowship in young players, who are the future The objective is to reduce the space to the violent, "he explains.

The president of the Intolerance Movement has a wish. "If the perspective of coexistence and the reduction of the ultra scenario in football are won, society will have a great opportunity to avoid other tensions, because the same as society is projected in football, the ultras are projected in society. The one who is violent in football is then in his house and in the street. If we win the game and get coexistence in the field, we will give a gift to society, "concludes Ibarra.
