On August 31st major international announcements, and access to new tools in the fight against online antisemitism, will be released in Melbourne.
Sick of the growing antisemitism in social media? Have you spent hours reporting it, only to have Facebook reject your reports? It's time to change the game.
You've been busy tackling rising antisemitism over the past month.
We've been tackling the problem too:
- July 22nd we warn about rising antisemitism on social media
- July 26th we showed the types of antisemitism rising on social media in Australia
- August 3rd we told a packed public meeting how to engage in combating antisemitism and stay safe
- August 4th our briefing forced Facebook to reverse a decision keep a page directly calling for killing
- August 8th we released a free guide to reporting pages, posts, comments, and images on Facebook
- August 11th we explained in The Australian how the rising in antisemitism in social media was no accident, but was rather part of a Hamas war strategy.
- On August 14th we tell it how it is, on the front lines of the war against rising online antisemitism
- August 19th we release a video detailing what we do to put a stop to online hate
It hasn't been enough. The tide has kept rising. It's time for change.
On August 31st at 4pm the Online Hate Prevention Institute will be running a major event, empowering the community and releasing a new tool that will make social media companies publicly accountable. To be a part of this, you need to be there.
Those who attend will receive a free guide not only to reporting antisemitism, but also looking at when and how to respond to it. You'll also get access to "Fight Against Hate" OHPI's advanced social media reporting and monitoring system. Reports lodged in this system will be monitored and the results will be announced by the Government of Israel in front of world leaders as part of the Global Forum to Combat Antisemitism in May 2015.
The social media landscape is changing. Ignoring antisemitism is no longer acceptable. Join us, and be a part of that change. It's happening here. It's happening now. It's happening.
