Letters From The Facebook Jail writes:
On April 16, 1963 Dr. Martin Luther King wrote his Letter from Birmingham Jail, also known as the Letter from Birmingham City Jail and The Negro Is Your Brother. The letter defends the strategy of nonviolent resistance to racism.
This Community, founded 55-years later on April 16, 2018, is dedicated to the strategy of nonviolent resistance to censorship by social media. These Letters From The Facebook Jail will tell the stories that others will not tell.
As George Orwell wrote in his book 1984, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.“
Our mission is to contest the uncontested absurdities. We Call BS!
This new Facebook page was created as more and more users of Facebook began to realize that they were being blocked from posting on friends pages and even from commenting. The inspiration for Letters From The Facebook Jail came from the incident at YouTube.
It now appears that the incident at YouTube was caused in part by Google blocking the account of Nasim Najafi Aghdam. Nasim entered the headquarters of YouTube. She then began shooting at staff before taking her own life.
Censorship can have deadly consequences.
