You read about the common front on SDNA, by fans of several organized Clubs against the measure for the "fan card" and thoughts ... of an appeal to the CoS. This information is confirmed today, Original 21 informed through communication shared on Original21 Facebook page that the appeal to CoS was filed on Thursday.
The statement: "The fan card as Mr. Kontonis has promised, like another New Year's gift (and the temporary process of registering the AMKA number for any tickets bought) was the occasion to create an initiative consisting of Supporters Fan Clubs to act together against this undemocratic and unconstitutional measure. It is an attempt to put aside whatever our differences, and to unite our voices and forces against a measure that affects, first of all our dignity as citizens and secondly as Football Fans.
Against a measure, like so many others, won’t solve the violence issue. Against a measure that makes us perceive ourselves as a "special" category of people who need "special" treatment, "special" laws, a "special" card.

From here on we precede in COMMON, in the stands and on court, against the absurd and undemocratic measure. Already, as we all will have noticed, already up in many football grounds a banner with the common slogan "CARD-AMKA-PROFILING-AFM ... ARE FREE CITIZENS. THE FANS?".
It is just the beginning. Concerted actions will follow up as needed. That is, until the abolition of the measure. Our goal in is this common front, the initiative 16 Fan Clubs that support of this motion.
