It’s 9th November 1938. Broken glass is covering the streets of Europe. But it’s not about the broken glass. This is the beginning of one of the largest genocides in human history.
It’s not about the broken glass. But what is 9th November about? As part of this year’s International Day Against Fascism campaign, UNITED is asking mayors, MPs, MEPs and other public figures to join a special online action to show their support for the campaign and their own personal stand against fascism and antisemitism.
Are you a politician or other public figure? Or do you know someone fitting this description who would like to take part? Join the campaign by following the simple steps bellow.
How it works:
Joining the campaign is easy – just follow the following steps:
- Have a look at our gallery of posters, and choose one that represents what the Day Against Fascism and Antisemitism means to you. Or, if you have your own idea, you can use our blank design to come up with your own poster.
- Take a picture of yourself with the poster. You can do this either by printing it out, or by taking a picture of yourself with the poster on your computer screen or tablet.
- Send a copy of the picture to firstname.lastname@example.org With (optional) a quote expressing your personal support for the campaign.
- Tweet your picture with the hashtag #dayagainstfascism and let UNITED know by tweeting @UNITEDnetwork
