This press conference will cover the highlights of Equality Labs' new report Facebook India: Towards the Tipping Point of Violence. The report features data and analysis from a four-month research project monitoring caste, religious, and gendered hate speech in Facebook India. One of the critical findings of this report is that Facebook India has failed to provide a safe platform for caste, religious, and gender minorities and the press, with a disturbing volume of hate speech, disinformation, and calls to violence against them allowed to remain on the platform. The press conference will break down some of the report's findings as well as provide an opportunity for journalists to ask questions for more insight into the challenges of Facebook's largest market.
