We respect the constructive criticism, but we say a firm no to hate speech"- explains Eliza Wolszczak, specialist. Online communications.

Ambassadors of this venture are known people who repeatedly fell victim of hate speech - Paulina Młynarska, Bilguun Ariunbaatar, Dominika Gwit, Kamil Pawelski (Exclusive Tramp) and Maciej Dzięgielewski (Magic of Y). Together with Netia they will both stigmatize aggressive comments and behavior and also... apologize.

For the purposes of this project there was established as a special persona - Director of the Department. Hate Speech in Netia. His weekly adventures can be followed on FB profile Netia.
