APAV promotes the new campaign "Fight Hate with Respect". This campaign aims to raise awareness against hate speech and hate crime. This campaign features five of the most proeminent hip-hop artists of the Portuguese musical scene: Ace (ethnic and racial hate); M7 (hate against LGBTIQ+ people), Papillon (hate and religious intolerance), Estraca (hate agains migrants and refugees) and Malabá (general theme).
The campaign is inspired by the concept of Rap Battles - musical battles that have hatred as genesis and in which insults are exchanged, as in the relationship between those who hate and those who hate them. In this campaign, the fight is against hate and not against people. Here, the protagonists are brought face-to-face with the victims - and instead of shouting words of hatred, they shout words of respect.
This campaign was developed under the project Hate No More, a project co-financed by the European Union's Rights, Equality and Citizenship / Justice Program, with the national partnership of the Judiciary Police and the General Prosecutor's Office, as well as the associated partnership of the Commission for Citizenship and Gender Equality, and with European partner organizations - Faith Matters (United Kingdom), Solidarci (Italy), Swedish Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority (Sweden), Victim Support Austria (Austria) and Victim Support Malta (Malta).
