Angela Denio and Josh Sykes Speak Out on Facebook Censorship

The following video is an interview with Angela Denio and Josh Sykes of the National Committee to Free Ricardo Palmera regarding Facebook censorship. Along with Tom Burke they were the administrators for the Facebook group, which on June 30th was deleted by Facebook. Several days later all three of them had their personal accounts disabled as well.

This is a story I have been following since it broke, and I will keep readers updated as more information comes out and things develop. Check out the The Marxist-Leninist forcoverage as well. You can also join the Facebook protest group here.

    i got kicked off of face book… “disabled” as they call it.

    here are the 2 responses i got from the 2 facebook email addresses i wrote to, who supposedly respond to folks who are “disabled” .

    the first response was about the group i was one of a few admins to. and this is their warning to me (which i never saw till yesterday) was sent april 7th.


    The group “Solidarity with Comrade Ahmed Saadat” has been removed because it violated our Terms of Use. Among other things, groups that are hateful, threatening or obscene are not allowed. We also take down groups that attack an individual or group, or advertise a product or service. Continued misuse of Facebook’s features could result in your account being disabled. If you have any questions or concerns, you can visit our FAQ page at

    The Facebook Team

    but 3 weeks ago my facebook acct was “disabled” and they said this to me (mind u ,,,before i saw the above warning… which i just saw yesterday)

    Hi Maryloo,

    Your account has been disabled because you were an admin of a group that has
    been removed for violating Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
    Groups that include drug use, nudity, or other graphic or sexually suggestive
    content are not allowed, nor are groups that condone violence or that attack an
    individual or group of people. Upon review, we will not be able to reactivate
    your account for any reason. This decision is final.

    Thanks for your understanding,

    User Operations


    but then i got an email from the 2nd facebook email address i wrote to and all “liam ” had to say was…..

    Hi Maryloo,

    After reviewing your situation, we have determined that you violated our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. One of Facebook’s main priorities is the comfort and safety of our users. We do not allow credible threats to harm others, support for violent organizations, or exceedingly graphic content. Your violation of Facebook’s standards has resulted in the permanent loss of your account. We will not be able to reactivate your account for any reason. This decision is final.

    “credible threats!?” geez! .. it looks like they read the war on terror propaganda big time and take it to heart… with the language they use in this accusation. instead of commies under the beds they are going on a trip about jihadi’s/ terrorists/ anti-zionists..etc. . under the bed…lol ! what a bunch of paranoid freaks!

    this is the response i sent to “liam”…: :

    hi liam

    thanks for your quick reply.

    i am very confused about these violations you say i did.
    can you please explain to me why you said “credible threats to harm others” . what do you mean by that?
    what is the proof and evidence of this claim i did this?

    what support of violent organizations are you claiming i did? again i didn’t see any evidence or proof.
    i don’t understand why you guys said that with out explaining what you mean. or what violent organizations it is claimed that i support.

    also you said “exceedingly graphic content”. what is that all about? what graphic content are you talking about? why didn’t you explain what content was graphic?

    this is why i am confused by your email saying only accusations with out evidence. it would be great if you could explain what you mean. because it is not clear at all to me why you you say these 3 things.

    thanks – maryloo


    so this is why i got cut off according to these jerks.
