YouTube is censoring SouthFront’s new 30-minute long video “Military And Political Trends Of 2020 That Will Shape 2021“. This video summarizes military and political trends around the world in 2020 and how they will shape the situation in 2021.
Less than 12 hours after the release, this video was placed behind an age restriction because it “may be inappropriate for some users”. The age-restriction clearly impacts a possible reach of the video because it does not allow people without YouTube accounts to watch it.
SouthFront immidiately appealed this age restriction. Our analytical video “Military And Political Trends Of 2020 That Will Shape 2021” includes no “graphic content”, does not violate YouTube’s Community Guidelines and was made solely for informational purposes.
The video violates no YouTube Community Guidelines, but despite this, a manual decision was made to age-restrict the video in order to limit its possible reach of the audience.
In 2020, SouthFront already became a target of multiple sophisticated attacks and the wide-scale censorship campaign. SouthFront’s accounts on all main mainstream platforms were blocked and sharing of links to southfront.org on Facebook and Instagram was banned. (MORE HERE)
The manual decision to censor SouthFront’s recent analytical video is the visual example of the ongoing censorship against independent media waged by global corporations. It indicates that sophisticated attacks aimed at censoring SouthFront or even damaging its website will continue and further.
