Over half a million views of vlogs against hate speech on YouTube. Hundreds of comments and reactions! Humanity in Action Poland’s campaign last year with three famous YouTubers caused quite a stir.
On May 15th 2019, we inaugurated a spectacular continuation of our initiative in cooperation with LifeTube. Together with Rafał Gębura, a YouTuber and creator of 7 Meters Under, the leading channel on social issues, we released a unique video, which shows the havoc that hate speech wreaks in society, from the perspective of two people: a Muslim woman and a gay man.
This vlog, as Rafał emphasizes, “is an appeal for respect, tolerance and courage. Courage to react. Because giving license to hate speech makes us all become responsible for it. And violence generates violence.” But to change something – you need a huge response. Within the first two days the trailer itself had over 100,000 views! Watch it and think about it. What can you do?
