FC St. Pauli to suspend all social media activity for four days

Over the last few weeks, we have been reporting on abuse and discrimination. People who suffer discrimination on account of their skin colour, their (attributed) background or religion have spoken to us about their experiences. Social media is playing an increasing role in this context. Hatred and abuse are becoming a part of the everyday discourse on the internet and in comment threads. This is a global problem that has to be tackled. By governments and especially by the social media companies.
For this reason, FC St. Pauli will join the boycott of social media by the English Premier League clubs from early Friday to Monday evening. We express our solidarity with everyone who has been the victim of abuse and discrimination on social media. The club’s professional squad will also join the boycott.
