'Joining in one large movement to say no to intolerance'

Addressing today the 125th Session of the Committee of Ministers in Brussels, PACE President Anne Brasseur commented on the worrying increase of intolerance and hate speech.

“In January we launched a no-hate parliamentary alliance. I propose that the Council of Europe takes the initiative to ask all democratic political forces - despite their differences - and civil society, as well as religious leaders, to join in one large movement to say NO to hate and intolerance. Hate and intolerance are undermining our democracies”, she said.
