Today Facebook took down the page of redfish for posts relating to anti-racist and anti-fascist content.
The posts flagged by Facebook were:

  • A January 27, 2021 post honoring victims of the Holocaust and marking the day when Auschwitz prisoners were liberated. The post depicted Nazi victims. Twitter Link
  • An April 28, 2021 post with a colorized picture of Benito Mussolini in military uniform. The post marked the day Mussolini was captured on April 28, 1945. Twitter Link
  • A January 20, 2021 post of a video showing racists in Las Vegas attacking young Latino men. Twitter Link

The Holocaust post was wrongly flagged for “nudity,” because the concentration camp prisoners were shirtless, while Facebook alleges the latter two posts post didn’t follow its Community Standards. We have tried repeatedly to reach someone at Facebook to seek clarification on why these posts were removed, without success.
