For more than two years a group of young people has been running the campaign, aimed at combatting (through legal means) websites that promote fascism, nazism, white power, etc., by making the internet service providers that host such websites aware of the phenomenon. The group organizes joint e-mail campaigns aimed at legally blocking the websites. In the last two-plus years, has succeeded in blocking more than 140 hate websites, and many more of them are under continual observation. The Cyberhate group’s work is legally grounded in Polish law, which criminalizes the promotion of hate (Art. 257 of the Criminal Code: ’Whoever publicly insults a group of people or particular person by reason of national, ethnic, racial or religious affiliation or by reason of nonreligiousness, or who for such reasons physically assaults another person, is subject to imprisonment for up to three years.") and in the provisions of the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.

The campaign’s partners include the Viridarium group, the Polish rock groups Hey and T-Love, and the internet service.
