Stadiums Of Hate: Antisemitism, Racism And The Euro 2012

Here comes the Euro 2012
The 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as Euro 2012, is the 14th European Championship for national football teams organised by UEFA. The final tournament is being hosted by Poland and Ukraine between 8 June and 1 July 2012. It is the first time that either nation has hosted the tournament. This bid was chosen by UEFA's Executive Committee in 2007.
And that is the problem.

The report below from the BBC's Panorama examines the violent racism and Antisemitism that has shown up at these stadiums--and the denial by both the police and the organizers of the games who picked Poland and the Ukraine to host the games.

Here is a video of the report:
