Dear %Subscriber:CustomField32%,

From the definition of the word of the moment, we learn that, in 1879, German journalist Wilhelm Marr originated the term antisemitism, denoting the hatred of Jews, and also hatred of various liberal, cosmopolitan, and international political trends of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries often associated with Jews. The trends under attack included equal civil rights, constitutional democracy, free trade, socialism, finance capitalism, and pacifism.

The No Hate Speech Movement is based on fundamental principles which are more than simple trends – but include human rights, democracy and the rule of law – and which reflect the earlier “trends” of the 19th century. So we could be justified in thinking that all of our supporters are Semites, and that those who attack Semites are attacking all of us and the fundamental values for which we stand – ANTISEMITISM – NOT ON MY INTERNET!!

EUROPEAN ACTION DAY AGAINST FASCISM AND ANTISEMITISM – 9 NOVEMBER 2014

The 9 November is the European Action Day against Fascism and Antisemitism! This day will focus on fighting against the fascistic ideas and antisemitic ideas that are spread on the Internet. Six actions have been recommended by the No Hate Speech Movement team, that you are invited to spread around you and undertake. You can find them on the platform of the Movement: www.nohatespeechmovement.org. We invite you now to share the message in the social media: “Antisemitism – not on my internet!”

WORLD FORUM FOR DEMOCRACY

The World Forum for Democracy took place in Strasbourg from 3 to 5 November!

One of the labs was entitled – “No to Neo-Nazis, No to Hate Speech” and took place on 4 November at 10h30 in the Palais de l’Europe (Strasbourg).

The panel consisted of several experts of hate speech and hate crime, including Mr Nils Muiznieks, Commissioner for Human Rights at the Council of Europe, our German partner organisation “No Nazi Net” and the “Stork Heinar” Initiative, which parodies Nazi ideology.

SEMINAR FOR ONLINE ACTIVISTS

A seminar for online activists gathering the stakeholders of the campaign will take place at the European Youth Centre Strasbourg from 7-11 December. The objectives of the seminar are to reinforce and develop the work of the network of online activists in the No Hate Speech Movement and also to celebrate the International Human Rights Day. The team of online activists will be implementing the week of the 10 December, for the celebration and promotion of Human Rights.

NCC WARSAW 9-11 NOVEMBER

Around 40 participants will gather in Warsaw for the Meeting of National Campaign Coordinators. They will be mostly from the National Campaign Committees, activists and Council of Europe representatives. All these campaign stakeholders will gather to celebrate first of all the European Action Day of the 9 November against Fascism and Antisemitism, but also to discuss the future of the campaign and to start discussing the evaluation time. This will be a very important meeting as it will be the first one speaking about evaluation.

AWARENESS RAISING AND INFORMATION DAY FOR THE CAMPAIGN

As a result of the training course on Bookmarks that took place in Namur from the 15 to 19 October, an event will be organised in Toulouse on 27 November called “Cyber hate – how intolerant messages are spread on the internet”. The event will be only in French. The first part of the day will be a conference on the presentation of the No Hate Speech Movement campaign and the second part will consist as several workshops on the theme of hate speech. The event will gather 140 professionals coming from the field of education. For more information on the event and on how to subscribe, please follow this link.

NATIONAL CAMPAIGNS

SERBIA

The Serbian Youth Association created an inspiring video of their trip in the “No Hate Bus” which you can view here. 35 Young volunteers from 6 countries went on a regional tour (to Belgrade, Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Gradiška, and Podgorica) to raise awareness of the issues of Hate speech online and to promote safe usage of the internet.

WORD OF THE MOMENT: antisemitism

The word antisemitism means prejudice against or hatred of Jews. The Holocaust, the state-sponsored persecution and murder of European Jews by Nazi Germany and its collaborators between 1933 and 1945, is history’s most extreme example of antisemitism. In 1879, German journalist Wilhelm Marr originated the term antisemitism, denoting the hatred of Jews, and also hatred of various liberal, cosmopolitan, and international political trends of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries often associated with Jews. The trends under attack included equal civil rights, constitutional democracy, free trade, socialism, finance capitalism, and pacifism. (copyright United States Holocaust Memorial Museum)
