This morning, BEE SECURE organised a press conference to promote Safer Internet Day (SID) 2017 in Luxembourg, one day in advance of the big day. We hope to generate a great deal of recognition of SID 2017 within the general public with the support of the national press and media.

Besides the publishing of the Annual Report 2016 and the launch of the First Aid Cybermobbing App (adapted from klicksafe.de), we announced our special SID action for tomorrow: a Twitter day with the Panda mascot, which is an important (and also cute) face of our campaign "SHARE RESPECT – Stop Online Hate Speech".
 
On SID, the Panda will visit public places as well as BEE SECURE partners and tweet about it all day long (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) – follow the hasthags #SID2017 and #bslux.
 
With this continuous presence in our social media channels during this day we intend to reach a large number of people and inspire them to "Be the change and unite for a better internet", encouraging people to participate and spread the message. To all people engaged in SID2017 we wish you good luck and success for all actions and events taking place tomorrow!

Cyberbullying (known as "cybermobbing" in Luxembourg) is not specifically mentioned as a criminal act in Luxembourgish law but, in most cases of cyberbullying, one or several laws of the criminal code will apply. Therefore, crimes committed in the context of cyberbullying are usually covered by law to some extent or other. The ability to file charges against a bully is generally already known by most people in the country, but the specifics about how to file a charge with the police and where to get personalised support on such issues are less known.
