August 24, 2016 -- Facebook has deleted Infoshop's Facebook page and suspended several of our admins over a Black Lives Matter image that we've been using as our profile pic for months. This come on the heels of months of censorship of images and content that we've been posting to Facebook. Our volunteers have been subject to arbitrary suspensions of our Facebook accounts. Today, Facebook suspended one of our main admins for a month, the second one month ban in as many months. Another, less active volunteer who hasn't posted anything in two months, was suspended for 24 hours. Another volunteer admin is near the end of a one month ban.

Facebook suspended our page on Sunday, for unspecified reasons. Typically, Facebook will inform you about what graphic is the reason for a suspension, but on Sunday, no reason was given. Today, Facebook logged out all of our volunteers and informed us that the Black Lives Matter icon (the yellow and black one pictured here), is the reason why our page has been deleted.

For more details about Facebook's ongoing censorship of anarchist and left-leaning pages, check out our Focus on Facebook Censorship.

We also recieved news today that our comrades over at Red & Black Anarchists, which has almost 100,000 followers, is back after a one month suspension for posting the same kind of anti-racist, anti-misogynist memes that we post.

We urge our supporters and readers to spread the word about this ongoing harassment and censorship.

Please support us by visiting our websites often, which are indpendent of mega-corporations such as Facebook.

Thanks!
