Movement against intolerance filed a complaint on Monday in the Hate Crimes Prosecutor for the “racist campaign” suffered by the Real Madrid striker Vinicius Junior “in social networks, the media and in the surroundings of the Metropolitan Civitas“.

In a week marked by cUnanimous condemnation of the world of soccer of the racist insults received by the Brazilian Hispanicseveral ultras fans gathered in the outskirts of the Metropolitan before this Sunday’s derby between Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid and they sang chants like ‘Vinicius, you’re a monkey’.

No football debate, whatever it may be, about celebrations surrounding a goal or any other, justifies the commission of a set of illicit acts that involve racist and xenophobic hate speech and crimes, in the networks, media, surrounding or inside a field of game. These facts make this soccer player a victim of racism, xenophobia and intolerance.

For this reason, it urges the Hate Crimes Prosecutor to “intervene”. “The criminal code It expressly prohibits demonstrations that are held for the purpose of committing a crime and punishes its promoters or directors,” he stresses.

In addition, Movement against Intolerance has also sent a letter to the Secretary of State for Sport, where it reminds you that racist, xenophobic and intolerant acts are behaviors prohibited and sanctioned by the Law in Sport and asks that they be addressed by the State Commission against Violence, Racism, Xenophobia and Intoleranceadopting “the sanction measures provided for in the Law”.

In his brief, he also states that “the Observatory of Violence, Racism, Xenophobia and Intolerance in Sport”, dependent on Higher Sports Council (CSD), “in a context where manifestations of racism and intolerance towards players from different soccer teams are on the rise.”
