France’s
government has presented a plan to better fight against racism and antisemitism,
focusing on social media and prevention in schools. 

 

Prime
minister Edouard Philippe said Monday France will push for a Europe-wide effort
to force internet giants to remove “heinous, racist and antisemitic” content.

 

Philippe
said “I’m upset that nowadays, it seems easier to remove a pirate video of a
soccer match than antisemitic comments” on social media.

 

He
said French law will be changed to force internet platforms to detect, signal
and remove illegal content. Philippe suggested substantial fines could be
applied.

 

In
schools, Philippe wants to create a team of experts to help teachers facing
difficult situations related to racism and antisemitism.
