European Action Day for Victims of Hate Crimes

Two years ago, Norway suffered the worst massacre since World War II. 77 people were murdered, most of them just because their political ideas as young members of Labour Party. The unnamable killer is a terrorist inspired by the ideology of racism, islamophobia and intolerance. Ideas shared by the right wing extremism willing to destroy Democracy and whip out values of equality, tolerance and diversity. They clearly intend to end up with the global Human Rights advances.
The July 22nd hatred motivated terrorist attack was not an isolate tragedy. Other hate crimes have shocked European society. German neo-Nazi murders scandal linked to intelligence services, racist crimes in Italy, harassment of Roma people in central Europe, attacks to Jews and Muslims, desecration of religious places, homophobic aggressions, attacks on individuals and organizations denying its diversity and similar attempts of massacres in Paris and Majorca  are some examples of this wave of hate and violence in Europe.
Europe is not very used to remembrance however memory is more important than ever in order to preserve the victim´s dignity. We need more commitment and determination against racism and related intolerance. Democratic courage is required for a better struggle against the imminent threat of poisoned extremist ideologies. Europe assumed values of equality, tolerance and diversity after the tragedy of Holocaust in order to shout “never again”, these principles are in danger and that means vulnerability for human beings.
An European Day for Victims of Hate Crimes is part of a comprehensive strategy to defeat ideologies that promote hatred and violence, and a way to preserve human dignity, democratic values, and Human Rights. The July 22nd attack was a turning point for the struggle against intolerance. The shared sorrow of Utoya and Oslo is a call for justice emerging from an irreparable loss of human lives. This is why ONGs are proposing to the European Parliament to set up this European Day for the Victims of Hate Crimes. Besides we encourage civil society, institutions and citizens to support this initiative.
The Council of Europe and the No Hate Speech Movement have stated the European Action Day for the Victims of Hate Crimes. We invite all the European citizens, civil society, organizations and institutions to support this initiative and to ask to the European Parliament and other public authorities to join the actions developed.
