SouthFront is now being censored by 4 largest mainstream social media platforms: YouTube, Facebook, Twitter… and even Instagram
As of September 23, Instagram has started blocking all links to SouthFront’s website (southfront.org) including those in your private messages. When a user tries to share or send a link to southfront.org, Instagram shows an error and does not allow to send a message with a link.
The sad irony of the situation is that SouthFront does not even have an active account in Instagram. Therefore, this ban mostly affects Instagram’s own users. Their ability to receive and even discuss independent news and analyses are now limited.
No advance notification or real explanation has been provided by the service (as always).
The ban in Instagram became the most recent step in the unprecedented censorship and pressure campaign against SouthFront:
On September 5, Twitter suspended SouthFront’s official account with over 28,000 followers claiming that SouthFront somehow violated Twitter Rules.
On August 21, Google unilaterally disabled SouthFront’s official Google AdSense account claiming that it “was found to be non-compliant with the AdSense program policies”. Funds collected on the account for the previous 1.5 months were in fact stolen.
Earlier, Facebook and YouTube (Google) took extensive steps to censor SouthFront work and prevent the sharing of SouthFront content on their platforms. (The long story of SouthFront censorship on YouTube and Facebook can be found here: 1 – Facebook, 2 – YouTube)
SouthFront work was also noticed on the highest level by the US State Department, which released a detailed report accusing SouthFront of being a “pillar” of Russia’s disinformation and propaganda, and de-facto asking millions of dollars to fight against us.
The Euro-Atlantic establishment and global corporations are so scared by SouthFront work that they seem to be ready to fight our team at any cost, violating laws and own terms of service.
They apparently do not understand or do not want to understand that their own actions (lies, double-faced policies and distortion of facts) set the basis for SouthFront’s power and influence. The current situation concerns people around the world and inspires them to get an independent point of view.
Despite the increased pressure campaign, SouthFront Team is not going to surrender and will continue its against the mainstream censorship and propaganda until our last breath.
