(Hrvatski) Sutra je Međunarodni dan za eliminaciju rasne diskriminacije

Sutra, 21. ožujka obilježava se Međunarodni dan za eliminaciju rasne diskriminacije. Rasna i etnička diskriminacija ozbiljne su prepreke u ostvarivanju temeljnih ljudskih prava.

Na današnji dan 1960.godine, prilikom mirnog prosvjeda protiv rasističkih zakona i aparthejda, policija u Južnoafričkoj Republici je ubila 69 osoba. Iako je od tog događaja Južna Afrika odbacila aparthejd, on je potpuno ukinut tek 1994., dolaskom Nelsona Mandele na vlast. Međunarodna zajednica donijela je Međunarodnu konvenciju o ukidanju svih oblika rasne diskriminacije, no, diskriminacija po ovoj osnovi i dalje je prisutna i najbrojnija među pritužbama koje građani za diskriminaciju upućuju pučkoj pravobraniteljici.

Centar za mir Osijek sjećanje na ovaj dan obilježit će u sklopu kampanje protiv govora mržnje na internetu, posebno govora usmjerenog protiv migranata, izbjeglica i tražitelja azila. Uvažavanje različitosti, tolerancija i pluralizam vrijednosti su za koje se Centar za mir- Osijek zalaže i zalagat će se u svojoj budućnosti. Poštujmo pravo na različitost i nikad ne umanjujmo vrijednost drugih!

Ovim putem vas pozivamo da podržite kampanju, te podijelite naš vizual na svojim društvenim mrežama. Budite glasnici pozitivnih poruka protiv govora mržnje na internetu!

Također, pozitivnu poruku možete objaviti i na našoj interaktivnoj platformi projekta: https://www.positivemessengers.net/hr/

INTEGRA

The project INTEGRA seeks to improve the process of long-term integration of TCN in 5 EU states (BG, CR, CZ, IT, SK), through city-to-city knowledge and experience sharing. The project will promote deeper mutual understanding between migrant communities and the host society, against the rising political discourse of securitization, which paints migrants and refugees as a major security threat in Europe. The project partners will identify current and future challenges to integration and will develop concrete actions to tackle local integration problems. Main outputs of the project INTGRA include the establishment of local and cross-border networks, methodologies and tools that can be used by local level stakeholders to involve TCN in civic initiatives. City audits, including policy assessment and mapping exercises will be carried out, to identify bottlenecks and opportunities for TCN integration (particular emphasis will be placed on urban security and cultural/social participation). City integration agendas with future scenarios for each city will be developed, through citizens’ integration labs. On the basis of the agendas, awareness and advocacy activities will be carried out in each country. Over 80 representatives of local governments will take part in project activities; more than 160 migrants will be involved in community consultations and decision-making, and over 4200 persons will be reached with project information materials and online resources. An advocacy and awareness raising conference in Brussels will gather national, regional and EU level experts and public officials on migration and integration.

Training session “Legal implications of hate speech with special emphasis on online hate speech”

Training on hate speech organized by Centre for Peace, Nonviolence and Human Rights – Osijek was held on 6 and 7 November 2017. Target groups of the trainings were representatives of civil society organisations, media and students.

Participants were provided with thorough analysis of international and national legal framework on hate speech which was presented by expert on hate speech and Associate Professor at the Chair of Criminal law of the Faculty of Law in Zagreb, Ms Maja Munivrana Vajda. Participants were able to learn about recommendations, conventions and covenants which cover the area of hate speech directed towards vulnerable groups, as well as national laws which cover this topic, particularly the Croatian Criminal code. They were also provided with judgments of European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and Croatian courts regarding hate speech cases.

Topic of second part of the training was media literacy. It was held by Ms Tena Dundovic, LLM. Statistics on hate crimes were shown and short overview of the current situation on hate speech in Croatia was presented. Participants were acquainted with possibilities on how to report inappropriate content, especially with the tools available online. Afterwards, internal rules of Facebook and YouTube and how to report hate speech content on these sites was shown to them. Lastly, participants were told about the Code of conduct on countering illegal speech online signed between European Commission and four major IT companies, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft.

In part of the non-formal and informal learning of the training, on the first day participants were searching through Terms and conditions of various websites regarding hate speech, filled in a questionnaire and discussed their results. On the second day participants played mini-trial concerning real case about the free speech which came before the European Court of Human Rights. Three groups played a role of different actors – judges of the Court, national government and a journalist who was punished by national court for producing a programme containing racist views.
