'Say No to Hate, Yes to Dialogue"
No Hate Speech Movement
, the campaign of young people for human rights online, is part of the project Young People Combating Hate Speech Online, which is running between 2012 and 2014. The project stands for equality, dignity, human rights and diversity. It is a project against hate speech, racism and discrimination in their online expression. The working methods are awareness raising, advocacy, and it also seeks for creative solutions. It is a project for action and intervention.
