International Day against Racism


#EU MEPs against racism!

Today, on the International Day Against Racism, we face great challenges. One of them is found on a virtual level and permeates the world in a dangerous way: Hate on the net. The anonymisation of one's identity that is possible on the Internet provides an opportunity for racist statements, some of which are filled with boundless hatred. We must stand up to these dynamics! We must recognise the power of language and use language in a positive way for coexistence instead of hate!

As a Member of the European Parliament, receiving racist and hateful comments has become a reality. You can listen to some examples in the video.
