In Defense of Uruknet!
Tonight’s post is about defending one of our colleages, comrades, friends, and allies. Tonight is about defending Uruknet whose blog is dedicated to providing information from the Middle East. For those of you who don’t know who Uruknet, please have a look at http://www.uruknet.info/. This blog is one of those that I personally consider one of the invaluable ones out there (a comprehensive list of those I read regularly will follow at a later date).
What has happened today will likely not come as a surprize to many of you. As it turns out Facebook deleted/deactivated/froze Uruknet’s account/profile. This falls into a greater trend of limiting/censuring/disabling peace/Palestine solidarity activists and this has to stop!
So here is what I thought we should do. Uruknet managed to set up a ‘group’ on Facebook. The url is
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Uruknet/142018729188512. If you have a Facebook account and feel so inclined, please go there and ‘like’ this page. If you have a blog, please do the same and also link (if possible, I still have to look into this) to this group.
We need numbers for this to work! Please help out with this…and in any other instance activists are censured for their very important work!
