In response to a growing movement of online harassment against people in the games industry, and in particular against women in the industry, hundreds of developers, press and industry people have signed a statement condemning harassment.

Since the statement was posted online yesterday by Spaces of Play dev Andreas Zecher, it has already been signed by over 1700 people.

"We believe that everyone, no matter what gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or religion has the right to play games, criticize games and make games without getting harassed or threatened," it reads. "It is the diversity of our community that allows games to flourish."

The statement asks that anyone who sees hateful or harassing speech online should take a public stand against it.
