The Lawfare Project has announced that they are considering filing a lawsuit against Google, Yahoo! and Twitter in Spain in an effort to pressure them into taking down anti-Semitic content from their websites.
According to a press release sent to the Journal, The Lawfare Project has already filed cease and desist letters to Google and Yahoo warning them that they will face legal action if they do not “take down anti-Semitic and defamatory content,” which includes “the proliferation of Holocaust denial websites.”
“Google, Yahoo, and Twitter are all hosting anti-Semitic websites and content on their platforms, which is a clear violation of Spanish law,” Lawfare Project Spanish counsel Ignacio Wenley Palacios said in the press release. “This cannot be allowed to continue. If they do not respond positively to the cease and desist letters sent last week, we will file lawsuits against them.”
