Join our campaign if you have enough of hate speech.
We live in the era of the primacy of pragmatism and operative thinking. In result of such civilization changes, new technologies have been pushing humans more and more effectively out. The Internet has given the man unheard and almost unlimited possibilities for creating and sharing contents. Unfortunately, the Internet has also given rise to an unlimited use of hate speech. The wave of hate has mastered the Internet forums and social media. Hate speech hurts, insults and ridicules. The anonymous online space reveals the true scale and firepower of intolerance. Hate speech has become ubiquitous throughout the Web and applies to everyone and everything: Internet users, those with different orientation, social status or financial standing, owners and managers of companies and institutions, social activists or simply an ‘average Joe’. Our campaign, launched in July this year, is a response to hate speech propagation online. We demand respect for freedom and human dignity. The campaign was originated to raise awareness, change attitudes and mobilize people to work together to ensure respect for human rights, mainly on the Web. It also comes with the involvement of as many institutions and individuals as possible in the implementation of similar goals and values. The campaign started with the online presentation of the film entitled Two Men and a Mouth, made by the Baltic Gallery of Contemporary Art.
