The international conference "STOP HATE SPEECH" will take place in Sofia on December 5 and 6. It is organised by Rabbi Menachem Margolin, President of the European Jewish Association, and Attorney General Ivan Geshev. 

Vice President Iliana Iotova and Justice Minister Krum Zarkov will address the participants. 

A discussion on the protection of human rights and respect for ethnicity and gender will take place during the two-day conference. The event will be attended  by chief prosecutors from EU member states and the region, and senior clerics of different faiths. 

"Social media have increased polarisation and intolerance by creating bubbles in which those who hate others can find common purpose," Margolin told BTA.
