Will the ‘Christchurch Call’ eliminate violent content online? | Inside Story SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rREdMMfZT4 : The worst attack in New Zealand’s history has sparked a global pledge to fight violent content online.
51 people were killed in March when a gunman opened fire at two mosques in the city of Christchurch.
The shooting was streamed live on Facebook, which was criticised for failing to stop the spread of the video.
Two months on, New Zealand is leading what’s being described as the “Christchurch Call” to combat hate speech and violent content on the internet.
Social media firms and 18 governments have signed on.
But the US is refusing to endorse it, saying the campaign threatens free speech.
So, will this campaign work?
