Around 44,000 articles, reports, features, editorials and more, from alternative media, blogs and content original to Infoshop News.
Comprehensive coverage of major events and movements including the 1999 anti-WTO protests in Seattle, disaster relief efforts, Occupy Wall Street and the ongoing anti-war movements.

Facebook and Google Censor Infoshop

Over the past few months, Facebook has been suspending Infoshop volunteers over memes that they posted to our Facebook page. Two of our main admins have been suspended for a month, which means they can't even post updated to their own profiles or communicate with other Facebook users. This censorship by Facebook has been affecting other political and meme pages. Infoshop has been censored repeatedly for posting political satire memes. We also feel that this targeted harassment is due to our support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Infoshop News was also delisted from Google News, for more than a year. This has cut off much of our organic traffic from people who aren't regular readers of our site. Google News has cut off Infoshop several years ago. This is censorship, given that Google is used by most people as their default search engine.

Facebooks Censors, Shuts Down Infoshop Facebook Page *UPDATED*

This meme resulted in a month suspension.

**UPDATE July 25, 2016**

Facebook continues to ban and censor admins of various anarchist and left-wing political pages. One of the main moderators of the Infoshop FB page is on week two of a month ban. Another Infoshop admin just finished a week ban. During that week, we could not post to the Infoshop page or answer messages.

It has come to our attention that this problem has been growing across other anarchist pages. Last week, Red & Black Anarchists, which has 95,000 followers, saw it's admins banned and the page cannnot be accessed via Facebook. Social Anarchist News informed us today that their main volunteer has been sanctioned for a week by Facebook. Other pages have seen an increase in sanctions and suspensions of volunteer administrators.

Emails and messages to Facebook by admins of these pages are consistently unanswered.

New Infoshop Project: The Infoshop Zine Library

The Infoshop.org project will be creating a new Zine Library that will collect, preserve, promote and share zines and similar materials. This library will include an archive of the defunct Zinelibrary.info project. In the future, the Infoshop Zine Library will allow people to upload copies of their zines for online sharing.

This project will be a sister site to the Infoshop Library, an online archive of anarchist, activist and political content. The Infoshop Library has existed online, in one form or another, for the past 20 years.
