Chilean Athletes Join Campaign Against Racism

After Dani Alves made world headlines by eating a banana that was thrown onto the pitch at a Barcelona match, athletes around the world have joined in the support against racism.

A global social media campaign, under the hashtag #todossomosmonos or #weareallmonkeys, athletes from around the world.

The support for the campaign was not only limited to the footballing world, and there was no shortage of support from Chilean athletes.

Among those to take part in the campaign were Olympians Natalia Ducó, Caterin Bravo, Karen Gallardo and Simona Castro. Chilean handball captain Marco Oneto, who played most of his career in Spain with Barcelona, was another to post his photo with support.
