Facebook Shuts Down Peoples Power Assembly Page – Act to Stop Censorship — Peoples Power Assembly

Facebook shuts down community, women’s groups and activists’ pages without cause Groups announce campaign to restore pages and to fight censorship On Friday, January 22, 2021, Facebook disabled the main pages of two major community organizations, Peoples Power Assembly and Women In Struggle / Mujeres En Lucha, and activists around the country who have played […]

Facebook Shuts Down Peoples Power Assembly Page – Act to Stop Censorship — Peoples Power Assembly

It also included PPA page editor Charlene Lady J. Jenkins, a founder of “What’s Up Baltimore,” whose Baltimore grassroots network was shut down as a result.

In addition, 16 individual activists’ profiles were disabled, which means that close to a dozen other progressive pages and groups were frozen when their administrators were disabled, including: the Baltimore Harriet Tubman Solidarity Center, ICE Out of Baltimore, Prisoners Solidarity Committee, Youth Against War & Racism, and Baltimore and Maryland Amazon Workers. 

Sharon Black stated: “Facebook’s disabling of pages and the accounts of major activists who have not violated community standards is meant to silence and censor our voices. The Peoples Power Assembly has played a significant role in the Baltimore Black Lives Matter protests in the summer and more recently opposing Trump’s effort to overturn the election.

On Dr. King Jr.’s birthday holiday, we held a car caravan to Jessup Correctional Institute and the Howard County Immigrant Detention Center to demand justice for prisoners and detainees.” 

Berta Joubert-Ceci, founder of the Women’s Fightback National Network/Red Nacional de Mujeres en Lucha and Women In Struggle, stated, “It is appalling — the cowardice of Facebook in silencing the voices of women and progressive people who struggle for justice and a better life for all.”  Joubert-Ceci is also an organizer of the International Peoples’ Tribunal on U.S. Colonial Crimes in Puerto Rico.  Her personal page used to connect with the Puerto Rican movement was deleted along with Women In Struggle.

Attorney Summerfield concluded, “We intend to fight this!  This includes waging a public campaign to demand that the pages of all activists and the groups they represent are reactivated.  We intend to use every avenue at our disposal,  including legal remedies, to stop the censorship of voices that are too often marginalized.”

Groups are urging people to contact Facebook at:

Twitter: @_Finkd (Mark Zuckerberg); @Facebook @guyro (VP Integrity @ Facebook)

Email: ZUCK@FB.com;  info@support.facebook.com and zuckerberg@fb.com.

Phone: 650-543-4800 or 650-308-7300

press@osbadmin.com

Tell Facebook:  Stop silencing the voices of community, workers, anti-racists, BIPOC, women’s, anti-war and socialist groups. Restore all the pages: Peoples Power Assembly, Women In Struggle / Mujeres En Lucha, and all of the activists impacted and the pages they administer. 

This includes: Sharon Black, Berta Joubert Ceci, Cheryl LaBash, Greg Butterfield, Maggie Vascassenno, Rasika Ruwanpathirana, Andre Powell, Elizabeth Toledo, Steven Ceci, Lallan Schoenstein, Charlene Lady J Jenkins, Alec Zomerfeld, Andrew Cancon, Miranda Etel, David Card, and Ian Andrew Schlakman

Más de una decena de colectivos llaman a salir a la calle con “una gran movilización” en decenas de ciudades y poblaciones de todo el Estado contra las propuestas del Pacto de Toledo y el “desarrollo que de las mismas pretende hacer el ministro de Seguridad Social, José Luis Escrivá”.

Por Kaos. Estado Español Publicado el 24 Ene, 2021

Colectivos de pensionistas de todo el Estado “ante la agresión que las recientes recomendaciones del Pacto de Toledo y la política de Escrivá suponen para el sistema público de pensiones” reiteran su “rechazo frontal a la sustitución complementaria del sistema público, por medio de los planes privados de empresa, vía convenios, con soporte de dinero público y apoyo gubernamental y a costa de los ingresos de la Seguridad Social” debilitando con ello “seriamente la caja única de las pensiones”.
