Democratic Europe Together we can build a more caring, more equal, greener society

11 March 2019

21 civil society organisations and unions today launched #ElectNoHate, a joint call for EU elections campaigning free from hate speech and divisive rhetoric, which legitimise hateful actions and pose a threat to human rights.

MEP candidates, politicians, the media and those in the public eye are asked not only to avoid engaging in, or amplifying, rhetoric that may incite discrimination, prejudice or hatred on any grounds, but also to actively counter it.

People across Europe face common problems – from inequality to discrimination, and unhealthy environments. These issues will not be solved by retreating into nationalism and division.

 

We can create more caring, democratic, equal, inclusive societies when we work together for the good of people and communities all over Europe.
