Hate Speech Watch will focus in September on Hate Speech targeting communities effected by conflict and violence. This includes Hate Speech about aconflict, or Hate Speech between members of opposite sides of a conflict. There are many close links between peace and hate speech. As a form of violence, hate speech belongs to the sphere of what individual, “normal”, people do that affects peace. Reporting this hate speech to Hate Speech Watch will highlight just how widespread casual hate speech is.
