European Day for Victims of Hate Crime

The activists and supporters of the Council of Europe’s No Hate Speech Movement initiated a petition towards the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in 2013 to establish a European Day for Victims of Hate Crime on 22 July, the day of the attacks on Oslo and Utøya in Norway. The purpose is to establish a European Day on 22 July as a means to give recognition to the problem of hate crime in Europe, to give voice to the victims and targets, to express solidarity and re-affirm commitment to monitor, to enforce the law and to educate and raise awareness so that such crimes are condemned and prevented. The initiative has received the support of the Support Group of the Victims of 22 July, the Norwegian Parliament and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.
