From September 2015 to July 2016, Get the Trolls Out! countered antisemitic speech in Europe through creative education, inclusive journalism, satire, and fact-based messages. How did we do it? Our media monitoring has been the basis of response actions taken by all of the wonderful partners in this project, such as cartoons, complaints, articles, videos, radio shows and theatre performances. We debunked false myths, ridiculed antisemites, exposed their lies, and showed the harm of hate speech.
Press release 7 July 2016 – CEJI – A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe is delighted to announce it has received a substantial amount from the European Commission Directorate General Justice - Fundamental rights and Union citizenship.These funds will support the new project “Facing all the Facts”. Built on the success of the European project “Facing Facts!
Wishing you peace and prosperity.
We at CEJI welcome the decision of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) to adopt a working definition of antisemitism, passed unanimously by its 31 member states, of which 24 are European Union countries. The working definition as adopted recognises the reality of contemporary antisemitism and should serve as a guide for policy-makers and practitioners.
