The Ministry of Human Rights and Citizenship created this Friday (27) a group to combat hate speech in Brazil. The idea is to bring together scholars to analyze the problem and try to point out solutions for pacifying the country.
“Today we observe the growth of hate speech, groups mobilized by hate, neo-Nazi groups, groups oriented by fascism, groups that are oriented, therefore, by contempt for human life. This we cannot accept”, says the minister of the portfolio, Silvio Almeida.
Representatives of the Ministries of Justice, Education, Indigenous Peoples and Racial Equality will also participate in this debate.
Almeida made the announcement on January 27, as it is the International Day in Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust. For the minister, everyday violence, often promoted by state agents, such as hate speech, is an “echo of historical violence”.
On video, he recalls that Jews, gypsies, people with disabilities, homosexuals and communists were victims of the Nazi regime during World War II. By pointing to “the victims of the holocaust”, he says that he also remembers and welcomes “the victims of our time”.
