Event description
Join us in Parliament for National Hate Crime Awareness Week #CutItOut

About this Event

René Cassin and the Traveller Movement invite you the Houses of Parliament for the launch of our new campaign: ‘#CutItOut’ – part of National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

Gypsies, Roma and Travellers share a history of persecution with Jewish people. Targeted by the Nazis during the Holocaust, faced with open prejudice and official indifference, and now subjected to a rise in hate speech and online abuse.

Hate speech legitimises prejudice. Prejudice fuels hostility. Hostility can lead to violence. All too often that sequence begins with casual bigotry from the powerful – politicians and the media – at the expense of the powerless.

The Traveller Movement and René Cassin are launching this campaign to raise awareness of the harmful consequences of hateful rhetoric against minorities.

Speakers include:

- Kate Green MP: Co-Chair of APPG Gypsies Travellers and Roma

- Martin Gallagher: Irish Traveller activist and academic

- Rosanna Rafel-Rix, Community Security Trust

We hope to see you there.
