Call on Facebook to remove cyclist hate page

“Drivers for the registration of cyclists” Facebook page perpetuates hateful attitudes towards cyclists by:

1. Normalising dangerous passing of cyclists by motorists.

2. Banning cyclists from posting comments to present their side of a discussion.

3. Promoting the idea that it is okay to hate someone because of their choice of transport.

4. Encouraging the view that cyclists deserve to be injured.

As a result of the spread of these hateful attitudes, it is only a matter of time before people are seriously injured or killed as a direct result of this Facebook page.

The page is administered anonymously, contrary to Facebook’s Community Standards:
We allow humour, satire or social commentary related to these topics, and we believe that when people use their authentic identity, they are more responsible when they share this kind of commentary. For that reason, we ask that Page owners associate their name and Facebook Profile with any content that is insensitive, even if that content does not violate our policies. As always, we urge people to be conscious of their audience when sharing this type of content.

While Facebook already prohibits disrespectful behaviour based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender or gender identity, or serious disabilities or diseases, this prohibition should be extended to bullying of individuals based on their mode of transport.

We the undersigned request that Facebook remove this page immediately and permanently.
