New from GPAHE: Pride Month events victim to harassment and violence by anti-LGBTQ+ hate groups globally.

This week, GPAHE published an in-depth analysis of the harassment and violence directed at Pride Month events in the U.S. and globally, many instigated by white nationalists, like the Proud Boys, and other anti-LGBTQ+ far-right groups. We underscore the transnational nature of these events and highlight how these dangerous groups are using Pride month to network and recruit.

Freedom Over Fascism Podcast: Christian Nationalism, Violence, and the Right with Dr. Heidi Beirich, Co-Founder Global Project Against Hate and Extremism

GPAHE’s take: Listen to this recent episode of the Freedom Over Fascism podcast where Heidi explains the dangers of Christian Nationalism and how it has inspired Project 2025, the far-right plan to move the U.S. towards authoritarianism. Heidi’s insights shed light on the potential impacts of this plan and the urgent need for awareness and action. Learn more about Project 2025 in GPAHE’s easy to understand deep dive on the plan.

ABC News: UN launches global principles to combat online hate and demands big tech take action now.

“Take responsibility. Acknowledge the damage your products are inflicting on people and communities. You have the power to mitigate harm to people and societies around the world. You have the power to change business models that profit from disinformation and hate.” – UN Secretary-General António Guterres to the tech companies

GPAHE’s take: GPAHE has long been calling for the protections the U.N. Secretary General highlighted this week. In April, a coalition co-founded by GPAHE, the Global Alliance Against Digital Hate and Extremism, issued an open letter addressed to tech companies calling for the enforcement of their own community standards on political speech. Simultaneously, the esteemed Club de Madrid, made up of former democratic heads of state, issued a similar call. The incendiary rhetoric of political leaders can make political violence more likely, incite violence and give it direction, and increase fear in vulnerable communities.

The Guardian: Transparency watchdog investigated as Hungary tries to curb ‘foreign influence’

“A Hungarian transparency watchdog and independent media outlet say they have been targeted in an investigation designed to intimidate voices critical of the government of Hungary’s far-right prime minister, Viktor Orbán. On Tuesday, Transparency International Hungary, an NGO, and Átlátszó, one of the country’s best-known investigative outlets, said they had received formal notification that they were being investigated as organisations that, ‘using support from abroad, conduct activities aimed at influencing the will of the voters.”

GPAHE’s Take: The investigation into Hungary’s few independent institutions holding Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s government accountable is highly concerning and another step in extinguishing democratic voices in that country. GPAHE has highlighted the Orbán government’s authoritarian attacks on civil society and its rollback of rights generally for migrants, the LGBTQ+ community, and women, as well as its deep links to far-right American organizations such as the Heritage Foundation who wants to quash dissent in the U.S. just as in Hungary through its Project 2025 plan.
