Dear Mandela Foundation,

As someone who marched, organised meetings and petitioned to have Nelson Mandela freed from prison can I express my disgust at your decision to retain your connection to the football club I have followed for over forty years.

Did Sunderland Football Club support the demands for Mandela's freedom, did Ellis Short, did Di Canio? No, it was ordinary people, like myself and you should hang your heads in deep shame by your actions which are a deep betrayal of the international struggle against racism and fascism.
