Bahía to wear oil stained shirt as a protest

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 1,574

Bahía will wear a oil stained shirt on Monday against Ceará. The Brazilian side have gotten involved, once more, in social action and will protest about what happened on 150 beaches in Brazil.

Since September, beaches in Northeast Brazil have suffered black tides due to oil spills. This has happened in 171 municipalities in the 9 states.

This has affected marine animals and also coastal towns, as more than 150 beaches have been damaged. The Government has declared a state of emergency and, because of this, Bahía will wear a different shirt against Ceará.

The team will wear the official top, but full of several black stains as a protest to what is happening. They also published a statement on their web page to make people aware of the motto: "The problem is yours. The problem is ours".

It isn't the first time that Bahía have gotten involved in a social or environmental cause, as they are one of the few Brazilian teams that defend these values so explicitly.
