Hate Speech Protested at Iceland’s Radio Saga

The Social Democrat Alliance youth organization is planning the event #OccupySaga today between 9 am and 12 noon, encouraging people to call the radio station Útvarp Saga and protest hate speech among the radio station’s hosts.

“Hate speech is alive and well at Útvarp Saga. Hosts allow it to fester and in many cases practice it themselves. Let’s send Útvarp Saga a clear message about hate speech not being tolerated in our society … and support minority groups like LGBT people and immigrants who are regularly being targeted by the radio station,” the event’s Facebook page reads.

The radio station’s telephone number is (+354) 588-1994.
