The youth of France and Macedonia with joint message against acts of hatred

The Helsinki Committee for Human Rights of the Republic of Macedonia (MHC), in cooperation with the Institute for Peace and Human Rights from Caen, Lower Normandy Region, French Republic, today presented joint video message against acts of hatred, which was recorded by young people from France and Macedonia. This message against acts of hatred was produced during the holding of the 34th Human Rights Youth School, which was focused on ethnic-and-religious-based acts of hatred. This school was part of the pilot-cooperation with the Lower Normandy Region, which is expected to continue and grow in the future. The project was supported by the Decentralized cooperation programme between the Region Lower Normandy and the Republic of Macedonia.
