On John Lennon's birthday October 9, 2016 we call on people throughout the world to call for an end to political censorship by Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.
Zuckerberg has even censored the photo of a world famous Vietnamese girl who had been napalmed by the US military in Vietnam. This was exposed and stopped when the Norway government and the largest newspaper Aftenposten exposed and attacked these policies by posting the picture on government and newspaper sites. This was replicated by thousands of outraged people in Norway and around the world.
Imagine during the Vietnam war the reaction by John Lennon if Zuckerberg had censored a photo of the war crimes of the US government. Today Zuckerberg is also openly colluding with the Israeli government to censor facebook posts which have been accused of war crimes and racism against Palestinians. He made a agreement to work with the Israeli government to censor criticism of Israel on Facebook. This is not new since they have been censoring and deleting thousands of pages and comments that they deem offensive or politically embarrassing to the Israeli government.
Next it could be against unions and labor who are organizing, hurman rights or environmental organizations fighting the destruction of our earth.
Throughout the world, Zuckerberg is also seeking to control the internet. In Brazil he told the government he would bring "free" internet to the Brazilians but only offered them Facebook as the internet and his company bought the domain http://www.internet.org although this is driven by the need for profit for his company. The same has happened in India where it was banned as an internet scam.
Zuckerberg also wants to privatize education and make money using his technology. He has purchased the entire primary public education system in Liberia and will be operating the schools in this country for the purpose of privatization and profit. He is also supporting the complete privatization of education in California and throughout the United States through charter schools that his is giving millions to. Is this the world we want and imagine for our future? A world controlled by Zuckerberg and other billionaires for profit?
We call for an international speak-out live to end the censorship and privatization of the internet. We invited people and organizations throughout the world that have been censored by Facebook to contact us and do a statement on video or in written form about the censorship.
We will read the statements live in front of the multi-million dollar mansion of Mark Zuckerberg in San Francisco to warn the world this is unacceptable and call for halt of this political censorship.

Mark Zuckerberg and his company Facebook sought to censor the historic photo of a girl being napalmed by the US during the Vietnam war. He is now working with the Israeli government to censor their crimes against Palestinians. Is there a pattern?
