Petition to The United States Congress

Stop Facebook from unreasonable mass blocking of Ukrainian users

Honorable Congressmen & Congresswomen of the 115th U.S. Congress,we're writing in the hopes that you will pay an attention to a problem related to an american company (Facebook, Inc.) and therefore to US national security.We're Ukrainian citizens and citizens of other countries who respect and support Ukraine. We know that the U.S. Congress is already worried about national security related problems caused by Facebook, Inc. (data leak to Russia, Russian intervention into US elections). Could you please also pay an attention for another Facebook and Russia related problem?On July 9-10, 2018 almost 300,000 of Ukrainian users left a feedback on FIFA's Facebook page. We left 1 (minimal allowed) star of 5 stas either with "Glory to Ukraine" only or with more detailed explanation. We did it because FIFA fined Croatian soccer team player over a video he published with "Glory to Ukraine" phrase said. This phrase is not less important for us than "In God We Trust" or "God Bless America" for US citizens. There is nothing bad in this phrase, it's just about giving a respect to our country. US representatives in Ukraine, presidents of other countries say "Glory to Ukraine" when they want to wish the best to our country and to let us know they are respect and support us.At the same times FIFA is publishing videos like this one on their official channel. With USSR symbolic, that is forbidden by laws in Ukraine and in other countries, including some EU countries. FIFA promotes soviet totalitarianism and nonexistent country on the official channel but doesn't allow a player to express respect to our country.This is the reason we, Ukrainians, become angry and left 1 star feedback for FIFA. This is our right to say "Glory to Ukraine" and there were no violations of Facebook rules in leaving 1 star feedback. Our family members, our friends left the feedback, thousand of Ukrainians did that. There were thousands and thousands of angry people, but this is why reviews functionality exists in internet - so people can say they are happy or angry with some goods, companies, non commercial organizations.But then we found that reviews section just disappeared from the page (it's not fair, but Facebook allows to do that if page owner is unhappy with feedback) and the people that left feedback got blocked by Facebook from leaving any new reviews. Actually we can't event review a cafe or restaurant. Same happened to many people that left feedback on the FIFA page. For some people Facebook blocked other functions as well: they can't for example Like a page. This is a really warning case of discrimination and censorship based on nationality and private opinion. The opinion that is not corresponding with the opinion of sponsored by Russia organizations (like FIFA), that is not corresponding with the opinion of Russian investors/partners of Facebook.And this is not first case of mass blocking of accounts of Ukrainians. Many of us got accounts blocked (temporary, up to one month, or even forever), because of posts and comments with an opinion that Russia doesn't like (Russian doesn't like we and our country exist at all). But this time it affected too many people in Ukraine and our right to respect and support our country has been violated.Sadly, Facebook doesn't show any desire to make sure all customers have equal rights. As we know, they have a new head of public policy (in Warsaw, Poland), who worked for Russian government in the past (Uliana Zinina) and who is responsible now for Facebook's public policy in Eastern Europe including Ukraine. We don't think that any Russia connected person can make sure customers in Ukraine or Poland have their rights respected, while Russia is invading Ukraine and planning future invasions to other countries, including EU/NATO countries.We all hope that you'll review this problem very carefully. US company is violating basic civil rights and helps an aggressor to censor public opinion. Today it's a problem for Ukrainians, tomorrow US citizens and national security will be affected.If you'll be interested we can provide more details about Facebook/Russia related problems that Ukrainian Facebook users are experiencing since Russian aggression in 2014.With all respect,Ukrainian citizens and people that respect and support Ukraine.God Bless America! Glory to Ukraine! Слава Україні!=========================================Підписуйте, поширюйте! Звернення до Конгресу США з приводу масово порушення американською компанією Facebook наших громадянських прав - масового блокування акаунтів українців за будь-яке висловлення проукраїнської позиції чи критику антиукраїнської діяльності людей, організацій чи цілих країн. Це стосується не лише останніх подій з FIFA, але і масового блокування акаунтів українських активістів, яке Фейсбук здійснює починаючи з 2014 року. А також того, як Фейсбук відреагував на всі попередні скарги - в грудні 2017 року на посаду Head of public policy Фейсбуку (офіс в Варшаві) призначено росіянку, яка в минулому (чи лише в минулому?) працювала в державних органах росії. Тепер вона відповідає за політику Фейсбуку щодо всіх країн Східної Європи, включно з Україною.В Конгресі США зараз дуже прискіпливо вивчають як Росія через Фейсбук отримала доступ до даних десятків мільйонів американців, втручалася у виборчий процес. Саме час заявити про те, як Фейсбук порушує наші права, позбавляє нас права висловлювати повагу до власної країни і навіть права негативно оцінювати тих, хто зневажає Україну.Слава Україні! Glory to Ukraine!Подія у Фейсбук для запрошення друзів до підписання звернення

Responsibilities Required From Social Media Regarding Military Romance Scamming

THE CAUSE: Military Romance Scammers are all over social media networks. These scammers use pictures, names and valor's of men and women who are actively serving in our military, retired  or are deceased. The scammers are aware how highly Americans think and feel for their military and they use this to pull at the heart strings of vulnerable men and women. Working with a retired Colonel from the United States Army whose pictures, name and child have been used in the scammers story, I have come to realize just what an epidemic this is. Unfortunately, many of the victims are afraid, ashamed, and embarrassed to come forward. Many just want to forget about the scam and move on with their lives. That is why I bring this petition to you. Due to the overwhelming numbers of fraudulent accounts throughout social media and the unidentified number of victims, we need to be the voice.  Social Media has a great amount of power, and with power comes an abundance of responsibility. THE BATTLE:  Because of the majority of military romance scammers residing in other countries, the United States has very little jurisdiction over these criminals, therefore we must work from where and what we know, and that is through the United States and our legislative system. We are looking to encourage social media sites to provide more public service announcements by way of television, movie theater ads, magazines, radio, etc. and provide additional man power to their fraudulent account tracking system as well as upgrading their security system to recognize these duplicated accounts that are recreated literally moments to hours after being deleted. Facial recognition does not solve all problems, especially when these scammers are using generic pictures (flowers, hearts etc.) on their profiles and cyber security is unable to recognize this discrepancy. OUR PROPOSAL: We are working hard to find a Champion to take on our proposal to amend the 230 Communications Decency Act of 1996 with the focus on identity theft. When this law was put into place 20 years ago there was little to no thought of the extreme type of crimes that could and or would be posted onto the social media platforms. This law gives social media a "get out of jail free" card, in other words, they are not held responsible for anything posted to their site by their own consumers. These sites are used as breeding grounds, and the social media companies are fully aware. We are not people who promote regulation, however it is very obvious, in previous news stories and with our own investigation, that self regulation is not the answer to consumer safety and security. We are proposing routine technology upgrades, additional staff to match growing population and ongoing up to date education. Items that are not successfully being done under self regulation. PERSONAL NOTE: I am a very proud daughter to a mother who served in our Navy, and brother and father who served in our Army. I also have multiple cousins, aunts and uncles who have served and the thought of our military being abused and disrespected is appalling! My mothers friend fell victim to a scammer using the pictures of the Colonel I am currently working with, thus being the reason I have become so involved. I, like many others, had no idea what an epidimic this has become and what little is being done. Social Media needs to take on more responsibility for this breeding ground than they already have, not just for the sake of the victims, but for the sake of our security, and Military whose job is to protect us. What security is social media providing them? Obviously, not the right kind. Scammers are the cancer to the social media world and it's time our companies and legislature took a stand and initiative to help prevent such illness within our military community and every day victims.

Petition to Natasha DeLima, Jack - Twitter CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, Pierre Tettart, Susan Wojcicki, Google, Rob Solomon, Jack Conte

YouTube, Google, Blogspot, GoFundMe, Patreon, Twitter, Facebook

Multiple Plaintiff Lawsuit  Lead Plaintiff Natasha & Wikipath Youtube is Stealing MILLIONS OF DOLLARS and millions from channel owners, in ways of stealing ad revenue.  When videos are monetized, they are running the ads, deleting the views and comments left on channels, and then demeaning channel success by subtracting thousands of views per channel, to steal the revenue. We have been robbed by so many thousand dollars.  They have tampered with accounts, closed accounts, deleted subscribers, views, entire channels.  They have Breached Their own Contract with Channel owners.  They changed user terms, lying about their advertisers, just to embezzle more revenue & stress out channel owners.  However in a contract, people have to be alerted to changes in terms & also agree w/ them.  When they are hidden to deceive, how can anyone agree?  Go Fund Me Has unlawfully closed my fundraiser, without provocation, notice, or any reason, it is connected to this petition, my videos, and retaliation for the truth.  Naturally, the connection is location, power, Democratic base, and too much influence on each other.  Also none of these sites like consequences for their illicit criminal actions, or discrimination, harassment, abuse, or anything in between Patreon is deleting comments, and they appear to be embezzling revenue and hiding actual channel "patrons".  They have been harassing me since I got on there and deleting private conversations between myself and patrons, and deleting comments completely and putting them into spam, making it look as though I am not responding to comments.  Now they are deleting them.  The only reason to tamper w/ comments is that they have something to hide = subscribers that I don't know are there.  This whole site is set up to embezzle and a video showing this is upcoming, it's also being turned in to the FBI  Twitter, has been closing accounts, locking people out, harassing them, and bullying  Deleting followers, deleting to make people appear to have worked less hard at building up an account it's so juvenile.  Twitter has harassed worldwide and suspended accounts during the election and discriminated against people opposing sharia law.  They violated free speech and have perpetuated ridiulous amounts of anger and stress across the globe. There are victims of a suspension and still is as of January 13, 2017.  Since Twitter has done this to many users of the twitter site, compensation for this bullying and harassment is on the website  Infliction of emotional distress, cyberbullying, harassment, and cyber crimes are all against the Constitution.  Twitter has to cease their bullying and adhere to USA laws.  One of the 13 signs of the left is that they try to break you down, and these sites, which should have no agenda, actually do. Twitter executives leaving - controversial policies & politics Twitter and Facebook & Youtube are committing federal crimes on their websites that are massive, & despite being under investigation they continue to escalate. Twitter Censoring, Shadowbanning and harassing twitter users When I rented private healing videos, at $2.99 = $4.99, several hundred times they were rented and I was paid for 5.  Youtube is going crazy.  Their number 1 channel,  is having millions of his views stolen and people unsubscribed that subscribe.  Youtube is messing with channels small and large, stealing the monitization and they have tampered with free speech. Youtube is deleting subscribers every day now, and totally messing with comments and views.  They are cut out up to 85%, that I can see in some cases.  August 11, 2017, they demonetized our videos, and Diamond & Silk lost 95% of their monetization.  So did Paul Watson & Myself.  On a 3 day break, where I uploaded videos & caught them at the crime of embezzlement, they refused to advance my videos on the other 3900 (90 new uploads from August 1-10) and in the time after July monetization, they cut it down by 2/3.  After this "handful of videos was said to be not suitable content, even though they were fine and monetized in July, YouTube did not increase or add monetization back, even after the videos were approved. YouTube has been sent correspondence and their answer was "we can't answer you now on monetization under the contract you have, since you have reported a lawsuit"  Until a lawsuit is filed and I am represented, they OWE me answers as a channel owner.  These "monetization" payments to us, should be right next to their desk on a saved link, ready to send to whoever needs them.   They have no 0 accountability until now, and the upcoming slew of multi million dollar lawsuits and Plaintiffs between all of us filing lawsuits is over 1/2 million people suing YouTube alone, ( and then add Facebook, Twitter and Google)  YouTube embezzlement live YouTube approved many of the videos of their "fake" campaign to demonetize, but they did not add revenue back into my 2/3 reduced monetization from July.     Math, logic, and numbers tell you if you earned so much in July, then added subscribers, 90 more videos and had more viewers, you would make MORE money than the month before.  But YouTube embezzlement team cut it down, causing the choice to either force a 3rd demonetization or pay up.   The lawsuit now has mounting Plaintiff's, we are protecting the names so that they don't end up in a river somewhere, in the mounting democratic body bag count that never ends.  But when it comes to this case, all Plaintiff's will be revealed and compensated under the law.  All of the injured parties that sign and have been harassed or injured by this petition are asking for criminal restutition, and compensation for the infliction of emotional distress.   These web sites instead, have the responsibilty to be non discriminatory, non abusive, and lawful.  If we do not hold them liable for what they have done, they will have ruined the safety of social media platforms at the expense of our lives, and the profit they take from advertisers on all sites.   Please sign this petition to end internet abuse.  This is the operation theory of the left & they try every single thing to bully and intimidate and demean people  Alinsky’s 13 Rules for the Left:1. Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have. 2. Never go outside the experience of your people. 3. Whenever possible, go outside of the experience of the enemy. 4. Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. 5. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. 6. A good tactic is one that your people enjoy. 7. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. 8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose. 9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. 10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. 11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside. 12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative. 13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Expected Outcome of this petition: Compensation from Twitter and Facebook for Infliction of Emotional Distress, bullying, and closing twitter accounts before and during the election, and then afterwards. Facebook for unlawfully deleting posts or accounts that were using free speech. Youtube - Comensation for harassment, bullying theft, stealing monitization for years, putting accurate channel counts on all of my channels, ceasing the theft of views and comments 100%, reimbursement for video rentals revenue that was stolen and for loss of those rentals and subsequent lost earnings because once you were stealing revenue, I had to end that income.  Interest on all monitization and triple damages under Massachusetts law for operating in bad faith.  Additional compensation for infliction of emotional distress, and for continuing into 2017, for freezing video counts and for forcing me to terminate monitization from daily harassment as Youtube tried to fight a virtual fight, while stealing from me.   We are seeking civiil damages for this abuse and endless cyber crimes, that continue to occur.  We informed the secret service of these crimes & they are even blocking our positive and supportive tweets to our new President from showing up on his feed. We are seeking compensation from all 4 websites, Google, Youtube Twitter and Facebook  We are presenting this petition to the websites in hopes that they choose to honor the terms of the Petition.  If they refuse, both criminal charges and a 5 billion dollar federal law suit will be filed.  Once the petition is presented, they have 60 days to accept it.
