No to Phobia: Response Regarding the Events of 8 November 2019
The civic platform No to Phobia responds to the events unfolded on 8 November 2019 regarding the premiere of the film "And Then We Danced". We believe that the measures taken by law-enforcement authorities were not sufficient to prevent the actions of violent groups and the threats emanating from them. The state authorities must take appropriate measures and take an unequivocal stance to fight hate crimes. It is also necessary to take measures to curb the increasing trend of the actions committed by violent groups, which are divisive and contribute to intolerance towards vulnerable groups.
