Facebook has censored Infoshop's Facebook page again, sanctioning one of our main admins for a month, and removing the page from public view. This is the second of our admins suspended for a month, after posting memes that were probably reported to Facebook by racists hostile to our project. Facebook has informed us that the page isn't even visible to our 28,000 followers. We can't post anything for two weeks anyway, since another admin was suspended for a month.
The posted graphic that got the page suspended again is shown here. It is a meme that has been posted to a variety of fan pages and personal profiles. It depicts a bunch of historical racist signs. Given that our project is anti-racist and prominently supports the Black Lives Matter movement, it has to be seen in that context.
Infoshop is not the only left-leaning page that has suffered from malicious Facebook censorship this year. Recently, other pages such as Red & Black Anarchists and Solarpunk Anarchists have experienced similar censorship. We understand that there are many other pages, but information is hard to gather given that Facebook is censoring communication channels.
