Stand Up Against Right-Wing Violence

© Klaus Knuffmann

 

Alarmed by attacks against immigrants, the German weekly stern initiated the campaign, “Stand up against right-wing violence” (Mut gegen rechte Gewalt) in August 2000. This became an important platform for the Amadeu Antonio Foundation and its partners. 

The campaign’s goal is to raise the public's awareness of right-wing violence and raise money in support of projects against the extreme right. Stern has made the topic a focus of the magazine, publishing numerous articles about the dangers of right-wing extremism in Germany and successful ways to counter it.

1.63€ million were donated, helped by the support of German rock star, Udo Linderberg, and his group's, “Rock Against Right-Wing Violence”. The money went to more than 140 initiatives as of November 2011, overseen by the Amadeu Antonio Foundation and the stern magazine.

In connection to this effort, the Foundation and stern worked with software giant, SAP, to develop an online media portal called, “Stand Up Against Right-Wing Violence” (Mut-gegen-rechte-Gewalt.de). It launched in April 2003.
