Meta. Stop Blocking Ukraine.
December 11, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
We call on Meta to reconsider its policy on freedom of expression. We also call on the US government to pay more attention to human rights violations committed on the Internet. Therefore, we call for participation in the demonstration #MetaStopBlockingUkraine.
Information warfare is a new front that humanity faces for the first time.
Ukrainian users oppose disinformation and fight for their right to existence, independence, and truth.
However, the pages of active Ukrainian users on Instagram and Facebook reporting about the war are increasingly blocked, and posts and profiles are deleted.
Thus, it is becoming increasingly difficult for Ukrainians to make public the war crimes that the Russian army commits on Ukrainian territory on a daily basis.
Information about human rights violations and armed aggression should not be restricted or censored unless it is disinformation.
Although it is important to avoid propaganda, no private company, even in the field of technology, can restrict the dissemination of information by blocking it. Corporate policies must be reviewed and brought into line with democratic goals.
