In their own words:
Spain – Founded in 1993, the Movement Against Intolerance is best described by its actions. After a series of violent attacks towards youth and migrants in Spain, the resurrection of racism and xenophobia was evident; there was a need for an organization to fight against the spread of intolerant attitudes. These ideas are still prevalent in Europe today with the rise of hate groups and beliefs that target minorities and prevent them from coexisting peacefully and democratically. Our current mission is fighting the hate speech that is moving from the streets to the internet and social media. Over the years, our organization has focused efforts in four main areas: Private prosecution, victim assistance, data collection, and awareness. Private prosecution is a fundamental part of our work, because it puts hate crimes on the agenda and in the spotlight. At the same time, this helps victims get the justice they deserve. Victim assistance gives legal and personal support to victims of hatred to help them overcome these extremely difficult situations. Data collection is the permanent research that MCI does to keep track of hate speech and intolerance. Through the RAXEN reports, they show the current reality of hate speech and intolerance and our team proposes solutions to change this in our society. MCI works with students in schools to raise awareness and inspire change in future generations to fight against intolerance and hate. MCI gives young people the skills needed to build a socially conscious and tolerant society as well as how to react peacefully against intolerance and hate speech. At MCI, we believe in the defense of personal dignity, Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms; nonviolence conflict resolutions; all intolerance forms eradication; rejection of totalitarian ideologies, and civic development of tolerance in a more participative democracy.
