The Network Against Nazis is an online portal of the Amadeu Antonio Foundation that provides a platform for relating information, exchanging experiences, conducting discussions and encouraging action in conformity with the motto “words and deeds against far-right extremism”.

What are the Goals?

The objective of the project is to make available a wide spectrum of information on right-wing extremism in a form that is understandable to both laymen and experts, to provide supporting arguments and possibilities of actions for persons who are confronted with far-right propaganda or violence, for example, in schools, sports clubs or other clubs, and to provide a platform for discussion and support.
