Campaign with #NoHateEP2014

ILGA-Europe and ENAR (European Network Against Racism) have joined forces in campaign initiatives between LGBTI and anti-racist organisations ahead of the European election 2014.

The 2014 European Parliament elections are taking place in a context marked by the crisis and the rise of extremist parties in different parts of the European Union. Exclusion and intolerance represent a real threat for the human rights of many European citizens, in particular members of ethnic, religious and/or sexual minorities.

On 19 March, the main European political parties are joining ILGA-Europe and ENAR (European Network Against Racism) to launch together an Appeal for an election campaign free from discrimination and intolerance to combat this threat and reassert the EU’s democratic and inclusive values.

Together with their member organisations, ILGA-Europe and ENAR will monitor parties’ adherence to their pledge. The form is to monitor incidences of hate speech in the context of the EU election campaign. It will provide evidence of discriminatory or intolerant speech.

ILGA-Europe and ENAR invite their members, as well as members of the public, to describe any incident in breach of this pledge. Incidents must be reported objectively, and will be verified by ILGA-Europe, ENAR, and/or their members. ILGA-Europe, ENAR and their membership will call public attention to these incidents, and call for a genuinely respectful campaign.
