Hello, I will write today about a workshop we had about hate speech, it was held both in Pultusk and in Warsaw, and I was taking actively part in the one of Warsaw that was in English but I was aswell a participant in the Polish one which took part in Pultusk as a listener.

So the workshop was lead by two girls, Aleksandra and Anna, aka Ola and Ania, they are two Polish girls who work in Warsaw and are spreading the fight against hate speech around the habitants of different Polish cities.

At the beginning of the workshop we started with some ice breaking games, to know each other and our names, we put as well pappers with our names in our chest, but before that they explained the rules of the meeting, like no interruptions and respect for the participants of the meeting

The first part was the introduction about what the workcamp was going about and telling us what was the parts of the meetings as well as the breaks we were going to do and how it was going to be directed.

Then we start with the first step, what is for use "Hate Speech", they give numbers to the participants to make groups and then a small time to discuss between the groups what is hate speech for them, so they started to discuss and share definitions between themselves until they agreed on one definition, and after that, they merge those small groups into two a bit bigger groups to make them discuss their own definitions again and have a clear one to show to the rest of the people, it was nice talk and everyone got their conclusions, after that they told us the definition according to the European Commision.

after that we were talking about our thoughs on the topic and then we had a coffee break.

Then we started again and we analized different situations that can happen in the daily life and they wanted us to tell our opinion about it, so we were talking and discusing again, the good thing is the wide variety of opinions.

then we had some kind of simulation where you get into the role of a different person, such as a bling man, old woman, etc. and they ask you questions and you have to advance if you could do it or stay if you couldn't, it makes us to be in the feet of someone else life, still the interpretations were different according to the positivism of the person, so from the same role can be different results.

In the end we had a summary and we talked about everything, was a good meeting and I hope they can continue with it in different places.

See you soon!
