Dutch Internet Pacifism Meme gets me a Facebook Block #freedom #groenlinks

leave a comment »

I usually don’t use this blog as a political forum, and as of changing my FaceBook profile picture to a campaign poster of the Dutch Pacifist Socialist Party, (seen left) now known as GroenLinks I was banned from Facebook. This is an Internet meme started after the decision by the Dutch political party GroenLinks neglecting their pacifist roots and opting to side with a right government and send soldiers and police to Afganistan.

What’s funny is that I didn’t even upload the picture, I just tagged it and set it as my profile picture. I warned fellow party members, and they will mostly likely not take down their protest against the Dutch political party.

I wonder if Amnesty International will take up my plight, like they took up the plight of the app developers who get banned from the Apple app store.

Today is also International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition, take some time today to remember this horror and remember that these atrocities are still going on.
