Anti-Racist Journalism and the fight against Hate Speech

The AWARE campaign with the partnership of Multipurpose Municipal Centre of Nicosia successfully led an interactive workshop on ‘’anti-racist journalism and the fight against hate speech’’ at the Multipurpose Municipal Centre of Nicosia on Wednesday.

Journalists, one of whom was an asylum seeker, conveyed their experience in covering the stories of refugees and asylum seekers in Cyprus.

Journalists Costas Constantinou from ‘’Politis’’, Olga Constantinou and Maria Tsaggari – Alpha TV and the Iranian journalist Behzad Ahmadinia shared openly their professional experiences and discussed them with the young participants interested in anti-racist reporting.

Following the discussion, the young participants interviewed refugee and asylum seekers from Cameroon, Syria, Somalia and Palestine. They conducted investigative journalism around their living conditions, the difficulties they face in Cyprus, their dreams and aspirations in the society that welcomes them.

The workshop was accompanied by authentic Syrian food cooked by the family of one of the asylum seekers.
