Facebook Ban: Dutch Political Party Scrambles to get House in Order #groenlinks #facebook

leave a comment »

As you may know I was banned from Facebook for a having a political poster as my profile page to protest against a Dutch political issue. I’m nothing like the New Yorker who is suing Facebook to get his account back, although a piece in Time magazine might be useful. 🙂

Due to the fact that this poster comes from the FB images of the Dutch political party GroenLinks they are now wondering what they are going to do, as @HuubBellemakers – who is partly responsible for the GroenLinks (election)campaigns, content strategy, online communities and social media policy – says:

mm, I need to take action because prudish Americans can't appreciate the best election poster ever. #grmbl

mm, I need to take action because prudish Americans can’t appreciate the best election poster ever. #grmbl

For Huub I’ll add my here: A nation that yields to tyrants’ might, losses more than life and property, they lose the light. (Een volk dat voor tirannen zwicht, zal meer dan lijf en goed verliezen, dan dooft het licht.)

I’m glad I can still use Twitter for Political Activism.
