Stop censoring OccupyDC's website

      Washington, DC

Facebook is listing all links to http://occupyDC.org as dangerous. This reflects a political opinion and is political censorship.

We want Facebook to be a neutral space for dialogue, but when they exert their influence by listing sites belonging to those of a particular political orientation as dangerous, they are practicing internet censorship.

Is Facebook censoring Occupy sites because the occupations oppose corporate power?

We demand that Facebook stop censoring OccupyDC.org and all other political websites that profess and practice nonviolence.

Despite repeated requests, Facebook's partner SURBL (http://www.surbl.org/) refuses to remove OccupyDC from their blacklist.

We ask Facebook to contact SURBL to have OccupyDC, and all other Occupy websites, removed from their blacklist.

      Facebook's greatest strength is it's ability to allow people to communicate with each other. Why limit its greatest asset?
