SouthFront is now being censored by the 4 largest mainstream social media platforms: YouTube, Facebook, Twitter… and now even Instagram.
On September 23, Instagram 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 the message with a link to be sent.
The sad irony of the situation is that SouthFront does not even have an active Instagram account. Therefore, this ban primarily affects Instagram’s own users. Their ability to receive and even discuss independent news and analyses is now being limited.
No advance notification or real explanation has been provided by the service (as ever).
The ban on Instagram became just 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’s 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’s work and prevent the sharing of SouthFront content on their platforms.
SouthFront’s work was also noticed at 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’s work that they seem to be ready to fight our team at any cost, violating laws and their own terms of service while they are at it.
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 further inspires them to look for an independent point of view.
Despite the increased pressure of the campaign against us, the SouthFront Team is not going to surrender. We will continue to work against mainstream censorship and propaganda until our last breath.
