Throughout November 2020, the Online Hate Prevention Institute (OHPI) will be running a campaign that focusses on Countering Terrorism.

Over many years now, OHPI has: supplied intelligence to police and security agencies, removed terrorist material, and contributed to both the public policy of governments and the corporate policies of technology platforms.

The Online Hate Prevention Institute stands against violent extremism & terrorism expressed in any form, be it through: social media, discussion platforms and on commentary sections of online media.

Join us by taking action! You can help the campaign in a number of ways:

  • Share this article on social media and with people and organisations who would support this work
  • Support and share our fundraiser to further enhance the campaign
  • Report examples of online incitement to Terrorism to platforms hosting it (ie. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube)
  • Help us report the items we highlight in campaign articles
  • Anti-hate organisations, particularly those who work in the area of Countering Terrorism, are invited to become supporters of the campaign – we need your logo and an article from you that says who you are and your thoughts / experiences regarding online incitement to Terrorism.
  • Companies and foundations are invited to become sponsors, these funds along with donations will be used to take the campaign further.
