Online anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial in Spain

Major internet content providers in Spain—including Google, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter—have permitted unlawful expressions of anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial to proliferate across their platforms.

The Lawfare Project is currently pursuing legal action to compel these providers to immediately remove the illicit content. If they do not comply, we will take all necessary steps available under Spanish law—including litigation—to impose legal consequences on content providers and halt the dissemination of such content.

In October 2018, a lawsuit facilitated by The Lawfare Project was filed against Google on behalf of a Spanish Jew. The suit alleges that the search engine failed to block virulently racist and defamatory material after a takedown notice was filed by The Lawfare Project’s Spanish counsel.
