The No Hate Speech Movement in Germany focuses the collective energy of everyone who gets involved against online smear campaigns. If you want to be a part of it – as an individual, or with an organisation, association, group or initiative – then publish the No Hate logo on your website, flyers, posters etc.
Movement means being visible. The louder and friendlier you fight back against the haters, the less chance they have of spreading their message. Worldwide countless people are getting involved against hate speech online.
Movement means being active. It’s not enough to just “be vigilant” and “not look away”. Stopping the troublemakers takes more than good intentions. It takes courage, solidarity and a good dose of humour. Then we’ll get there.
Since February 2016 new German media producers have been coordinating the Council of Europe’s No Hate Speech campaign in Germany. The Federal Ministry for Families, the elderly, Women and Youths is promoting its coordination into the framework of the federal “living Democracy” programme by the end of 2017.
The National Campaign Committee accompanies and advises the No Hate Speech movement. A broad alliance from civil society, politics and management is brought together in the committee. Some of the committee members also have information in English.
