No Hate speech European Action Day

The Power of Words: Human Rights Online

Today, 10 December, millions of people across the globe celebrate Human Rights Day. To mark the occasion, the No Hate Speech Movement is organising a European Day of Action reminding everyone of the importance of respecting human rights online.

The EEA and Norway Grants are a strategic partner to the No Hate Speech Movement. We take a strong stance against hate speech, using the Grants as a tool to raise awareness of the issue and its risks for democracy, as well as promote tolerance and multicultural awareness.

The Council of Europe’s No Hate Speech Movement has had a successful first year of campaigning. For the last European Action Day of 2014, it is celebrating human rights and raising awareness of human rights online.

You can get involved in today’s European Action Day by

  • Reporting any online human violations to the Hate Speech Watch
  • Supporting the Thunderclap action with your own social media network. Today at 18.00 (CET) the message Human Rights Online will reach hundreds of thousands of people on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr
