Express IT – Limitations of freedom of expression and hate speech 3

Ask the participants to go back to their teams and to create a Facebook event, protesting against something simple – for instance, against all the people that smell bad and use public transport, or against those who are driving their car to work instead of taking public transport, etc. They should describe the event as provocative as possible, and add some hate speech posts in the event discus- sions.

The idea behind the game is for them to observe how easy one can use hate speech, even when the topics of discussion do not touch upon people/groups’ attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Each team presents the Facebook event and the provocative posts were created.
