It is now launched. The anti-discrimination platform, announced in December by Emmanuel Macron, was put online on Friday, February 12. It can be consulted at this address: antidiscriminations.fr. The platform, managed by the services of the Defender of Rights, makes it possible to report cases of discrimination by internet and by telephone, to 3928.

“It is intended for people who are victims of discrimination or for witnesses. The idea is to support people, to listen to them, to answer their questions, to be able to guide them, to give a first legal qualification”, explains on franceinfo Claire Hédon, Defender of rights.

“Today, when you have a skin color that is not white, you are much more controlled (…) You are identified as a problem factor and it is unbearable”, declared the President of the Republic in a context marked by the Michel Zecler affair, this black music producer beaten by the police. “The only way to move is to do what we have been able to do on other forms of violence: set up a common platform so that people can denounce in a very simple, unique and national way.”

If the President of the Republic had mentioned the color of skin and police interventions, the platform is not confined to the problems of abusive police checks or racist discrimination. “All forms of discrimination may be the subject of a report”, had indicated the ministry at the beginning of February, that it is about employment, housing or daily life, and whatever the victims.
