On May 13, France’s @AssembleeNat will vote on a proposed hate speech law that could harm both people’s right to freedom of expression and access to knowledge not just in France, but in diverse communities across Europe and the globe. #LoiAvia #CyberHaine (1/11) ⬇️ Despite its good intent, we are concerned that the proposal, the #LoiAvia, will require platforms to remove suspected hate speech within 24 hours of receiving a complaint. Such a short time for removal makes them the ultimate arbiters of what constitutes hate speech. (2/11)
