There are people who intentionally or unintentionally do hate speech. We do have many people who are against hate speech like those who suffer from it and those who seek justice. We need global online platform where those who want to fight against hate speech to join in global online team. In one part citizens will report all form of hate speech in this platform, then information will be verified by member and action should be taken by investigating cause and it could be as simple as sending warning to offenders to submit complain in local or EU court. There is also need to reform punishment.
