In today’s blog post, it’s all about the campaign #stopfundinghate !
I bet you’re wondering what the campaign is all about?
Well, Stop Funding Hate is a campaign which disagrees with discriminating newspaper articles and mediated hate speech published by the likes of tabloid newspapers The Mail Online, The Sun and The Daily Express. The campaign aims to “tackle the culture of hate, demonisation and division that is poisoning our political discourse.”
Stop Funding Hate stand for
“Freedom of speech and freedom of the press”
The campaign wants to persuade advertisers to stop supporting these tabloids and to support the anti-hate campaign.
The campaign also stands for,
“Freedom or choice, Impartiality, Inclusiveness, Consistency and Universality”.
#STOPFUNDINGHATE want to take on the divisive hate campaigns in which newspapers promote!
#STOPFUNDINGHATE urges advertisers to think about where they’re advertising. In a recent campaign strategy, the team behind Stop Funding Hate, created a YouTube video to urge the CO-Operation group to stop advertising with The Daily Express due to the prejudice and hate messages portrayed in their newspaper headlines and articles. Leading this campaign off to a start, Stop Funding Hate stuck with the Co-Op’s own hashtag #TheCoopWay.
So now you know all about it and why we’re so EAGER to get advertisers to stop supporting these hate messages through these tabloid newspapers, why don’t you join with me in the debate!
