Letter to the Italian Football Federation

Dear Giancarlo Abete, president of Italian football federation,


SUBJECT: ALI JAWAD AL-SHIEKH DIED WEARING THE ITALIAN KIT


Ali Jawad Al-Shaikh is a 14 years old fan from Bahrain. He loves football and his favourite football team is Italy. On 01/09/2011 at around 8:45am after prayers and before celebrating Eid, Ali was involved in a peaceful protest demanding reforms and democracy in his country.

The Bahraini police fired tear gas directly at Ali. The tear gas canister hit Ali directly at his neck causing his death. He died in the hospital minutes later.

Sir, I am writing to you on behalf of Ali’s family and friends to honour his love and admiration to the Italian national team by holding a minute of silence before your next game with Slovenia on the 6th of September and to further dedicate just a small space in your media/press release and magazine for this 14 year old boy whose dreams were crushed whilst he was peacefully protesting for his and his counrty’s future. This will mean a lot to him, to his family, to the people of Bahrain and without a doubt to every fan around the world.

Your Sincerely,

Update: Thanks to a visitor from Kuwait. Letter  is now translated into Italian if you prefer to send it in their language. 


Lettera alla Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio
Caro Giancarlo Abete, presidente della Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio,

OGGETTO: ALI Jawad al-Shiekh MORTO SI PORTA IL KIT DI ITALIANO

Ali Jawad Al-Shaikh è un fan di 14 anni dal Bahrain. Ama il calcio e la sua squadra di calcio preferita è l'Italia. Su 2011/01/09 a circa 8:45 in mattina e dopo le preghiere prima di celebrare Eid, Ali è stato coinvolto in una protesta pacifica chiedere riforme e la democrazia nel suo paese.

La polizia di Bahrein ha sparato gas lacrimogeni  direttamente ddAli. La bomboletta di gas lacrimogeno ha colpito direttamente Ali al collo provocando la sua morte. È morto in ospedale dopo i minuti.

Signore, io vi scrivo per conto della famiglia di Ali e amici per onorare il suo amore e l'ammirazione per la squadra nazionale italiana di possesso di un minuto di silenzio prima della prossima partita con la Slovenia il 6 settembre e per promuovere dedicare solo un piccolo spazio nella media / comunicato stampa e riviste per questo ragazzo di 14 anni i cui sogni sono stati schiacciati mentre stava protestando pacificamente per il suo futuro e del suo counrty. Questo significa molto per lui, alla sua famiglia, al popolo del Bahrein e senza dubbio a tutti i fan di tutto il mondo.
Il Suo Cordiali saluti,

  6. The autopsy report stated that the bruising on his neck was not caused by a gas canister, and there were no traces of tear gas on his cloths or in his system, the writer if this letter knows this as the report has been heavily circulated, yet decided ro use the death of an innocent child ro serve a dirty political agenda.

  10. it is very sad that some people ignore the cruelty of AL KHALIFA & it's REGIME, how can you ignore the bloody attacks against BAHRAINI people??????? yet the government said that the riot police didn't fire at ALI!!!!!!!!!!!
