Hate speech is not an opinion

The No Hate Speech Movement is organising an Action Day for Human Rights Online on 10 December. The day aims at increasing the understanding about the importance of standing up for Human Rights online and the impact of hate speech on human rights for all of us. ERYICA asks our Members and stakeholders to join the European wide action.
 

The planned activities of the day provide various ways of involvement. At 10:00 a.m. CET o10 December, we invite you to post the slogan ‘Hate is not an opinion’ on your social media platforms in your national language. Please report or retweet the message and support the day using #nohatespeech. Find the list of national social media platforms on: http://nohatespeechmovement.org/ncc

Furthermore, the Action Day focuses on three main lines of action:

  • Strengthening understanding of Human Rights online through education and awareness raising;
  • Denouncing hate speech as violations and abuse of human rights, using the slogan: ‘Hate is not an Opinion’ and sharing of report with counter narratives through Hate Speech Watch;
  • Expressing solidarity, by standing for the rights of others using the slogan: ‘I stand up for [‘fill in name of person or group’] Rights Today! In support of the UN action on 10 December.
 

Detailed rationale for the Action Day can be found in the Blog post: Hate is not an Opinion. Further recommended actions are described in the Action Day Button.

 

ERYICA invites our Members and stakeholders to:

Let's stand up for human rights online together.
