On Thursday morning our Facebook page was arbitrarily “unpublished” by Facebook with no warning or explanation, apart from a standard message informing us that we had allegedly violated the company’s terms and conditions. The timing of such a move is concerning for several reasons. Firstly, there is the international context, in which Facebook appears to be targeting independent or leftwing sites in the wake of Russiagate. However, in terms of

Let me immediately begin that I have really no use for Alex Jones or for Inforwars. I do recognize the very important and positive role they played in the 9/11 Truth movement, but the rest of their agenda and ideology is really not my cup of tea, to put it very mildly. Their constant hysteria about Islam and China is particularly stupid and, worse, misleading (Israel, for some reason, totally

Press TV reports:A political commentator says YouTube deactivation of Press TV’s official page under pressure from the Israeli-American Anti-Defamation League (ADL) shows the video-sharing site is afraid of people’s awareness. “Press TV has become essentially the CNN of activists and persons who do not want to be fed a steady diet of execrable hasbara of CIA lies and half truths,” Randy Short, member of the Black Autonomy Network Community Organization,
According to the very official Rossiiskaia Gazeta quoting the Russian Minister of Communications the Kremlin is seriously considering shutting down YouTube. They could do that under a new law called “On the defense of children against information which can damage their health or development”. Furthermore, the Russian agency in charge of communications has already demanded that Internet service providers block the streaming of “Innocence of Muslims” on the grounds that
Slashdot reports: “Federal prosecutors in Virginia have shut down notorious file-sharing site Megaupload.com and charged the service’s founder with violating piracy laws. The Associated Press broke the story on Thursday, reporting that the indictment accuses Megaupload.com’s owner with costing copyright holders including record labels and movie studios more than $500 million in lost revenue.”* “Shortly after a federal raid today brought down the file sharing service Megaupload, hackers aligned with
Haaretz reports: Israel’s Internet intifada Online political activism has hitched its battlewagon to the stars of social networking, leading to warfare over Israel’s legitimacy on sites like Facebook and MySpace. By Benjamin L. Hartman The struggle for the Holy Land may be the world’s most ancient conflict. But in one respect, at least, the weapons and the battleground could not be more cutting-edge. This is the realm of the “virtual
First we had “Evil Joe” Lieberman with his “Internet kill switch” and now they are at it again, this time with a “Protect IP Act“. The thugs in Congress are always up to no good, usually some crafty way of making the rich richer, the poor poorer, to further reduce any civil liberty left and, last but not least, to do whatever the hell the Israel lobby demands from them.
It is my contention that spurious accusations of copyright infringement can be used to suppress videos that are not liked, in certain circles, and that YouTube’s reporting procedure favours the accuser over the accused, who is not even given the minimum amount of information necessary to be able to challenge any claim, let alone a false one.

Predictably, YouTube censors Alan Lawson’s video on the ‘Holocaust’, hate speech and ‘stupid’ Germans

There we go, Google uses it power to police the Internet on behalf of the US MAFIAA.
by Rachel Slajda for Business Insider Early this week, after hacker attacks on its site, Wikileaks moved its operation, including all those diplomatic cables, to the greener pastures of Amazon.com’s cloud servers. But today, it was down again and mid-afternoon we found out the reason: Amazon had axed Wikileaks from its servers. The announcement came from Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Lieberman said
