FEMYSO condemns the horrific terrorist mass shooting in Christchurch

Our deepest condolences to the people of New Zealand after the horrific terrorist mass shooting attacks on mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. We condemn such hatred and violence, and extend our support and most heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families.

This is a reflection on the increased and normalised Islamophobic and hate speech by a number of political parties and media outlets.

FEMYSO calls on the European institutions and all governments to condemn these atrocious attacks and to review their policies on hate speech and specifically speech which incites to violence against Muslims.

We at FEMYSO will continue our efforts on advocating against Islamophobia and all forms of hate speech, and push for more effective policies that reflects the seriousness of the matter.
