HUMAN RIGHTS: ALWAYS ON

HATE SPEECH IS A VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS. In December the Hate Speech Watch dedicates its activities to speaking up for Human Rights Online and we invite YOU to report any online Human Right violations on the Internet. The action day will have special attention to the issues around refugees and recent Human Rights violations in and around Europe. Our actions will reflect messages of solidarity towards refugees, will include counter narratives against hate speech towards them. Actions will also call for commemorating the victims of hate crimes that happened recently and our content will also express that no crime can justify hate speech against people who belong or seem to have similar identity with those who committed the violent act. See detailed content and concept of the Action Day here View

Hate speech towards refugees is a strategic focus of Hate Speech Watch that aims to map and monitor hate content of the Internet towards migrants, asylum seekers, IDPs and immigrants. The Movement aims to promote constructive discourse for human rights and human empathy when engaging with this sensitive topic. We now invite You to contribute to the Hate Speech Watch by helping us map and monitor hate speech targeting refugees. View
