The Foundation for Development and Culture, with the support of the media and the non-governmental organization «Masarat» in Iraq, announced indicators of countering the "hate speech" against representatives of national minorities (Yezidis) over the past five years (from 2017-2022).
The cartoons published by «Masarat» in its own report on countering hate speech are directly proportional to the escalation of hate speech, the percentage of which reached the highest level in 2021. As for the level of public immunity and its opposition to hate speech on an ongoing basis, the Foundation revealed that the percentage of supporters of hate speech was the highest in 2018, but it was equal to the percentage of those who rejected it in 2020-2022, respectively, which is considered a positive indicator reflecting the high level of awareness of the population in the face of hate speech.
The «Masarat» organization mentions in its report the danger of "hate speech" and its negative impact on society, the percentage of which reached the highest level in 2018, when observers were only trained to detect hate speech. In 2019-2020, there was a decline due to mass protests and restrictions of Covid 2019, but the indicators went up again in 2022. Training seminars began to be held, in which such target groups as clergymen and instructors participated. The production of videos to raise awareness about hate speech against the Yezidi minority and how to counter it has begun to increase.
As for the percentage of changes in the speeches of hate speech propagandists aimed at anti-hate speech programs, such as training seminars and workshops, the overall change increased to 59%, which is an important indicator of the need for direct action on hate speech, 22% were unable to change the target group, and 19% achieved a partial change.
«Masarat» confirmed that its work on monitoring and analyzing hate speech during the above-mentioned period showed the importance of adopting a law criminalizing hate speech.
