Organise a simple local or online event with the help of UNITED posters, postcards and stickers to stop hate in your community.

Once you have thought of an activity, send it to 9november@unitedagainstracism.org to add to the map of activities!

We also call on European cities to take a stand against hate and hate speech online. We need a positive vision for Europe! To do this we ask you to approach your city government –especially the mayors of cities – and ask them for a statement for the campaign site and to take a simple, no cost, action in your city. See HOW at www.dayagainstfascism.eu/cities.

The serious situation with Golden Dawn in Greece demonstrates -once again- the need for action across Europe. Minorities are discriminated or even attacked whilst the majority remains silent.
Now is the time to take a common stand. We must Wipe Out Hate!

Don’t forget: Even small acts change the world!

Why campaign on 9 November?
The 9 November 1938, the ‘Kristallnacht’ pogrom, was the first step towards the extermination of the Jewish Europeans by the nazis. Today it is seen as the symbolic beginning of the Holocaust, the policy of the systematic murdering of millions of people. It reminds us that such terrible things did not start with deportations and concentration camps, but developed step by step.

UNITED
Since 1992 the UNITED network stimulates and coordinates the International Day Against Fascism and Antisemitism on and around 9 November to call for an end to hate. Every year many local campaign activities take place in over 45 European countries. By acting together on 1 common date we draw European-wide attention from the media, the general public, and also policy makers, on our common demand: Wipe Out Hate!

(1) campaign material can only be posted to European countries

This event is supported by the Council of Europe (European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe), European Commission (Youth in Action Programme of the European Commission), Open Society Foundations and Province Noord-Brabant.
