Facebook is fueling a wave of violence in India - the platform is flooded with posts inciting racist mobs to vandalize mosques and lynch people in the street.
But rather than cracking down on hateful lies and fake news, Facebook is suppressing an independent report that might expose the company's continuous deliberate mismanagement of this crisis.
Facebook execs know that if this report is released, they will face a blistering public backlash and be forced to crack down on hate speech and disinformation that is fueling real-life racist violence in India.
This is the moment to hold the company to account. With enough public outcry, we can force Facebook’s hand.
Sign on to tell Facebook to immediately release the full Human Rights report.
