NIRS interviews OHPI

February 11, 2014: National Indigenous Radio Service discusses OHPI’s work

A newsgrab of the interviews reports:

The Online Hate Prevention Institute says governments must intervene in eliminating racist content being posted to social media sites.

The comments, from Chief Executive Andre Oboler, come with the recent removal of an Aboriginal memes page from Facebook.

That followed the uproar in 2012 over Facebook’s repeated refusal to remove a similar page, before the company reversed its decision.

Dr. Oboler says governments must provide pressure for social media sites to hastily remove ‘hate’ content.
