These groups are essentially on the left or extreme left of the political spectrum and mobilize anti-globalization and alternative issues activists. In addition, they provide constant encouragement to activists to heighten awareness in the media and public opinion.

The Law and the Internet (France - Europe - International Conventions)

Furthermore, these countries are concerned with avoiding the trivialization of racist expression by directing criminal policy not just to the most serious cases, but also to the condemnation of ordinary racism by making convictions known, improving reporting and, above all, by developing a real media education policy for young people. In this short text, we will highlight some features of the penal provisions in the fight against racism and antisemitism on the internet.
