I just signed a petition asking YouTube to re-instate my YouTube Channel "Durianriders" which was deleted recently.

For 5 years, I've uploaded near 950 videos to YouTube. Recently my YouTube channel has been terminated along with near 950 videos, which I've worked very hard on for the last 5 years. I do not have backup of all my videos either.

My YouTube channel is a hub for my videos and subscribers who come to learn about Health, Cycling, Running, Weight loss & Sport. And my passion is to make video tutorials for people who have basic beginner questions on these topics.
Most of my video tutorials are very helpful, instructional videos many people around the world rely on to help themselves increase their own personal health & fitness. I know, perhaps some of my videos are biased toward the drug free vegan lifestyle but those are my personal opinions and I should have right to “free speech”.

I know YouTube is one of the most open communities in the world that promote freedom of speech/fairness, and I am calling on you to do the right thing.

We, me and my fans who watch the videos, are frustrated by the termination of my YouTube account without any explanation.
It's frustrating as a YouTube Partner that drives almost 2 million views on YouTube monthly with nearly 42,000 subscribers, to be all lost in one day. It's a loss for both me and YouTube.

This petition isn't just about me, but for everyone who's YouTube account was terminated without a response and had all of their videos removed with no option to save them to their computer.

I have used YouTube Partner support forms already and have not gotten any responses for 8 days.

YouTube, I still have my last "hope" in you.

Let's start by giving Durianriders YouTube channel back to the people and my fans who need it the most.

Best, Harley Johnstone aka Durianrider

      It makes no sense at all.

      His efforts are valuable to the raw food community and those looking into it.
