Anleitung zum GEGENREDEN: How to argue against hate speech

The European Training and Research Centre for Human Rights and Democracy – ETC Graz has been conducting trainings and workshops against hate speech for years. In this time we collected a considerable amount of simplifying slogans that have one thing in common: They deny some persons their fundamental rights.

On occasion of the 60th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR 1950) we took the chance to change our seminar rooms for the public space, presenting the campaign GANZ RECHT! / THAT'S RIGHT!: Juxtaposing 24 hate slogans with the respective articles of the ECHR we highlight the fact that human rights are not just the hobby of some freaks but a legal framework.

2010 has passed by, the poster and postcards are still "bestsellers" - therefore we decided to re-edit them - casting an eye on the up-coming election campaigns in Austria - in 2012. The campaign is additionally supported by the brochure Anleitung zum GEGENREDEN which contains questions, arguments and background information on the 24 issues as well as strategies against hate speech. 

Are you interested? Just pick it up at the ETC Graz, Elisabethstraße 50B, or we can send it to you by post (please refund the postage).
