    Does ethnicity, racism and xenophobia rule Europe

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 12 Apr 2016, 12:26 pm

    Internews is a media company that tries very hard to get past these hangups and it's latest work is being done in The Balkans.

    Read on HERE

    Quote: "Internews strives to improve the publics access to information and helps foster the development of a responsive and independent media".

    Europe

    Since 1993, Internews has implemented innovative programs in Europe aimed at bringing conflicted societies together through various media projects. Currently, our work focuses on the Balkan states, where ethno-national politics continues to impede the free flow of information and foment prejudice and mistrust among people of varying backgrounds.

    From Reuters

    NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Desperately seeking new lives, migrants traveling to Europe often hear lies and rumors such as promises of an escort across a forbidden border or offers of steady work that can steer them in the wrong direction and even endanger their lives.




    I found this site during my usual surfing habits and thought that it might be doing a good job trying to inform and guide people in Europe

    What do you think of this publication ?

    The European states are just the same as us as they too have their bigots and racists.

    In fact, I think that the ex Soviet blocs are probably the most ethnically and racially extreme of all of the European countries.

    Sadly, I have to agree on that statement Zath', as I suspect that even although they are trying hard to sound like Western nations they are still suffering from the ethnic tribulations of breaking away from the Soviet bloc.

    Every country of the world is troubled by what comes from the extremists within but while they are still in the minority they will have little effect on main-stream opinions.

    Lol Zath - you started off well intentioned then your second sentence showed you as bad as the rest.

    If you want extremes look at Cambodia and Rwanda. Personally I dont have any beefs with the ruskies - at least you know where they stand

    It looks as if you know nothing about the genocide and terrorism perpetrated against minorities in the Balkan states Gandhi.

    Chechnya, can also be included in these states BTW.

    I think that it is safer to say that there is extremism and racism in just about every country; we just have to know about it to criticise it.

    THESE are the present and ex Soviet bloc states that we are talking about.
