Elimihate is not your average grassroots movement.
In addition to reporting online antisemitic hate speech, we seek to question who should be held accountable for the vilifying content in an era of digital convergence.
Elimihate started as a university assignment for Sydney University but the cause swiftly turned into something much larger than we had previously anticipated.
Established in 2013, Elimihate’s key focus lies in exploring the difficulties of holding social media platforms responsible for hate speech.
By monitoring Facebook’s complacent response to hate-speech reports, we have come to the conclusion that current legislation is inadequate, as social media sites exist in a legal grey area where traditional policies are no longer relevant or able to sufficiently regulate.
Elimihate calls on Facebook to improve its filtering methods, recognise Holocaust-denial as hate speech and increase its transparency by revealing an objective standard by which it distinguishes offensive from humorous content.
Elimihate welcomes all support and partnerships.
