What To Do If You Are A Victim Of Hate Crime – Europe

The German issue of Freedom Magazine lays out 12 suggested ways of remedying violations of Human Rights, from direct dialogue with the offender to petitions to the European Parliament to contacting the Media.

If you are being discriminated against as part of an overall policy of governmental discrimination against your religion, it is best to make these submissions in coordination with your Church, which may wish to complain on behalf of all its parishioners. Lawyer advice is essential if you wish to make an effective case. Legal aid is available in many European countries.
