European Action Day – Youth Power

12/08/2013

Event type: Action Day, European Action Day

On the occasion of the International Youth Day (United Nations) the No Hate Speech Movement and its online volunteers are organising the fourth European Action Day. Its main aim is to show a wider public the strength and power of young people standing up for human rights and express solidarity for those who are targetted by hate speech in Europe.

Keeping the summer holiday period in consideration we planned this Action day simple and to the point with three easy actions.

Suggested theme: Youth and Migration- Free from Hate.

  1. We invite young people to express solidarity with other Europeans who are targetted by hate speech – by uploading their photo on the platform with template.
  2. We publish a call for creation of MEMEs (predisigned images) with a deadline of mid September . Young people can submit images (Memes) that express solidarity and argue with different types of hate speech.
  3. We ask young people all orver Europe to wear a red hear on this day to express solidarity and show the power of youth in Europe wherever they are.

The actions will take place on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/nohatespeech ), Twitter ( #nohatespeech ) and on the official No Hate Speech Movement platform (www.nohatespeechmovement.org )
