In November  - connected to the Action Day countering Antisemitic Hate Speech - we invite you to flag antisemitic hate speech using  Hate Speech Watch. Through the Hate Speech Watch you can flag any online content (on social meda, websites, news sites, comments etc) that expresses hate speech against people and groups just because they are Jewish. When you submit a report, you can explain why that content should be challenged, and if you want provide your counter arguments. After submitting the report you can share  it on your social media to initiate discussion about the content, to express solidarity with the people targeted by the hate speech and spread counter arguments that promote human rights for example through online and offline actions. If you would like help identifying antisemitc hate speech and draft counter arguments take a look at the guide monitoring antisemitic hate speech by CEJI. The resources of the ‘Get the Trolls Out’ project can also be useful to analyse and recognise antisemitic hate speech and provide some examples of counter actions using images video’s etc. View

LGBTQI Hate speech 2016

The Hate Speech Watch in May 2016 is focusing on hate speech against LGBTQI people. We invite you to report online hate speech that targets people’s gender identity and/or sexual orientation. The Internet is full of hatred and incitement towards lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex people. Research clearly shows hate speech against LGBTI people is a huge problem. A survey conducted by the Youth Department of the Council of Europe in 2012 shows that homophobic and transphobic hate speech is one of the most frequently encountered form of hate speech online. The EU Fundamental Rights found in 2013 that 19% of EU LGBT reported being harassed because they were LGBT.  Addressing such hate speech is a cause for action for all as it reaches a huge audience with todays open internet access and can have a harmful impact on individuals and society as a whole. For this reason protecting freedom of expression including of people with different sexual orientations and gender identities is of the utmost importance for all of us who consider Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law the basic principles of the peaceful life of humankind.

The Movement is organising a European Action Day against Fascism and Antisemtism on the 9th November 2014. In November we invite you to report antisemitic hate speech to the Hate Speech Watch. Report any online content (on social meda, websites, news sites, comments etc) that expresses hate speech against jewish people just for their identity, content that spreads fascistic ideas, or content that denies holocaust itself. The Movement is inviting you to express zero tolerance towards antisemitic hate speech and recommends that you speak up against antisemtism immediatelly when and where you read it. Ignorance can be interpreted as silent agreement, so it is very important that we counterargue in the moment it appears so other readers will see that it is not acceptable. If you fight ignorance you actually shiled out the spread of hatred. The Movement will organise different online actions around a selected number of hate speech reports. View

Countering hate speech against Muslim people

On 21 September 2017 the No Hate Speech Movement is countering hate speech targeting Muslims in support of the International day of Peace. We call for positive dialogue to decrease stereotyping and judgement, and strengthen counter and alternative narratives that debunk hate speech and its underlying xenophobic narrative effecting Muslims. In September the Hate Speech Watch will draw the attention to the amount and spread of online hate speech content targeting people with Muslim faith in Europe and beyond. For this the Hate Speech Watch will focus on collecting typical hate speech patterns and hate content against Muslim people in order to raise awareness about the extent of the problem, to provide indepth understanding and deconstruction of the oppresive and discriminative narratives and to allow the production of relevant counter narratives to debunk the simplistic, xenophobic and discriminative discourse.  View
