JOHANNESBURG - Global Watch launched its "Stop Racism and Discrimination" campaign in Houghton this morning.

Their goal is to show a red card to racism and discrimination in sport.

Using the hash tag "Sport Loves Colour" Global Watch launched its anti-racism campaign, which aims to take a stand against injustices occurring in the sporting world.

High profile athletes and dignitaries showing their support included Natalie Du Toit, Bruce Fordyce and secretary general of the ANC Gwede Mantashe.

This organisation headed by Tokyo Sexwale, will work to transform sport into a non-discriminatory zone.

Safa President Danny Jordaan explains, "We must get to that place where it is the colour of the jersey and not the colour of the player in the jersey."
