The Hate Speech Watch is focusing to Homphobia and Transphobia in May. We invite you to report online hate speech against people with different gender identity and sexual orientation. The Internet is full of hatred and incitement towards LGBTQI people and it actually affects freedom of expression of all of us. 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. Addressing such hate speech is a cause for action for all as it reaches everybody. For this reason protecting freedom of expression including of people with different sexual orientation and gender identity is of utmost importance for all of us who considers Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law the basic principles of the peaceful life of human kind.

Initiated by the United Nateions from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

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
