Women, Action and the Media launched a campaign to get Facebook to end hate speech against women on its website and urged users and advertisers to pull their support. The companies stopped their ads and FB said it would review its guidelines, update training for employees and increase accountability for those who post such matter.
The group of youths (Italian, immigrants and second generation) who created “Occhio ai media”, an observatory whose aim is monitoring and reporting racist and discriminatory press, wrote the book ¨Nella mia tendopoli nessuno è straniero¨. The book tells about the earthquake that took place in Emilia Romagna from the immigrants point of view: they lost their homes and lived side by side with italians inside the tents.
In a post on his blog, the italian politician Beppe Grillo lists a series of crimes committed by immigrants: again, politics try to spread fear and gain consensus by enforcing in the public opinion the prejudice that a migrant must be a criminal.
Searchlight was founded in 1964 as an occasional publication and press agency, and became a monthly magazine in 1975. From the outset it has been uniquely successful in gathering and analysing intelligence on the far right. The results of this work are used far beyond the pages of the magazine and our other publications.
Searchlight exposes the fascists and racists’ activities and alerts the antifascist community to our opponents’ intentions, plans and trends. We are the only publication regularly to investigate and analyse the far right’s ideological powerhouse, the New Right. Searchlight is the first port of call for activists, journalists, politicians and academics seeking information on organised racism in Britain.
