In early September, SouthFront’s YouTube channel became a target of another attack.
The project work was blocked when the project’s channel received two community guidelines strikes. With two community guidelines strikes, SouthFront was not able to upload new videos on YouTube.
This was a clear violation of the freedom of speech and an attempt to eliminate the independent media.
On September 8, 2017, SouthFront’s war report video “Syrian War Report – September 8, 2017: US-led Coalition Rescues ISIS Commanders From Deir Ezzor?” was removed because it allegedly violated “YouTube Community Guidelines”. The video included no graphic content, but was nevertheless flagged and deleted.
On September 6, 2017, SouthFront’s channel received another community guidelines strike when Youtube deleted our video “Foreign Policy Diary ‘War on Terror’ [remastered]”.
However, this video was already reviewed by YouTube in 2016!
On February 15, 2016, YouTube deleted the video and the project channel received a community guidelines strike. However, the strike was removed after SouthFront’s appeal. (You can find more about this HERE [strike added] and HERE [strike removed])
The video remained deleted and SouthFront did not attempt to re-upload it.
The video “Foreign Policy Diary ‘War on Terror’ [remastered]” was somehow restored by YouTube and deleted again because it allegedly violated “YouTube Community Guidelines”.
Thus, our channel received a new community guidelines strike.
SouthFront immediately appealed the both “Community Guidelines” strikes.
All SouthFront content is produced with informational purpose in mind and is aimed to provide an independent coverage of the threats of international terrorism as well as the geo-political, military and security issues of our time.
The only thing that SouthFront violated is the mainstream media’s exclusive right to provide informational coverage of world events.
SouthFront faces systematic ‘false flagging’ on YouTube from the project’s ill-wishers that seeks to oppress the freedom of speech on the platform.
Late on September 8, Youtube removed one of the two “Community Guidelines strikes” from SouthFront’s channel and restored our video “Syrian War Report – September 8, 2017: US-led Coalition Rescues ISIS Commanders From Deir Ezzor?” SouthFront became able again to upload new videos to our Youtube channel.
However, the Community Guidelines strike that was added to the channel on September 6 remained.
The remaining strike directly impacts SouthFront’s ability to provide exclusive content. We cannot more host live streams because our Youtube channel has a Community Guidelines strike.
Furthermore, a threat that SouthFront’s YouTube channel might be closed down or once again frozen (as a result of further ‘false flagging’) remains while the channel still has one Community Guidelines strike.
