EU launches “Block the hatred. Share the love” campaign in Montenegro

Montenegro

The European Union and the Council of Europe have launched a “Block the hatred. Share the love” campaign in Montenegro. The campaign aims to combat forms of hate speech targeting specific communities and individuals in Montenegrin society. It also aims to inform and educate society, and especially young people, about the role that everyone has in the fight against hate speech.

 

The campaign will be rolled out online through dedicated social media channels and in the media, as well as through public events. These activities will involve prominent public figures, institutions and activists, promoting diversity and equality in Montenegro and in the region through personal storytelling, testimonies and exchange of good practices.

 

The No-Hate-Speech Ambassadors include tennis player Danka Kovinić; the high jump Olympic Champion Marija Vuković; Paralympic table tennis bronze medal winner Filip Radović; opera singer Tamara Radjenović; and actress Dubravka Drakić. They are joined by Young European Ambassadors Bojana Lalatović, Stefan Vukmanović, Emina Balota and Dado Dervanović who responded to the call of this campaign to engage actively with counter-narratives and behaviours.

 

The campaign is being implemented within the “Promotion of diversity and equality in Montenegro” initiative, which is a part of the joint European Union and Council of Europe “Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey 2019-2022” programme.
