Members of European Parliament Share GPAHE/’NEVER AGAIN’ Letter with Tech Companies

On Monday, a group of 24 Members of the European Parliament sent a letter based off a statement originally drafted by Global Project Against Hate and Extremism and ‘NEVER AGAIN’ Association to the CEOs of Meta, Google, and Twitter, asking them to put humanity above profit.

The letter, signed by MEPs from various countries and political groups, asked the tech companies to deplatform Russian propaganda outlets including RT and Sputnik and key political figures who are spreading hate and disinformation. It also asked Google to derank unauthoritative content and disinformation in favor of legitimate sources.

“Tech companies have failed to act in any meaningful way,” said Wendy Via, co-founder and CEO of Global Project Against Hate and Extremism. “We are glad to see that MEPs have taken leadership on this issue, and hope that the tech companies listen to them.”

Read the letter.
