Twitter Action Alert! Call on FIFA to Suspend Israel!

As the FIFA Congress gets underway in Brazil ahead of the World Cup, let’s take to twitter to send the message that human rights violations have no place in football.   Uzi Dann, international sports editor of Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz said on 18 April 2014 “From my experience, only threats and pressure will force the Israeli government to take action”.

On June 10-11, during the FIFA Congress, use the sample tweets, articles, videos and graphics below to ensure our message gets through to FIFA: Suspend the Israeli Football Association.  Tweet to: @fifacom, @FIFAWorldCup, @SeppBlatter.  Use the hashtags: #WorldCup, #WorldCup2014 and #Brazil2014


Graphics: “If you could see their national sport…”
