t is absolutely pernicious how FB is using the Rohingya genocide to justify censorship & the sweeping deletion of accounts. When it deleted the accounts of Burmese generals (leaving Suu Kyi’s several walls intact), it was not to silence lies & hate mongering but to set the stage for censoring Rohingyas & other freedom struggles. It is important to know what the genocidaires are claiming & social media made that easily available. Now we have to hunt for such information. We have nothing to fear from freedom of speech, even for mass murderers & rapists like the Burmese generals. But mostly, we cannot let the powers-that-be trick us into supporting censorship on social media when the primary targets are those fighting war, occupation, & genocide. That isn’t a naive largesse toward the oppressors but protection for the oppressed.
