Tell Facebook: Stop Silencing Palestine

Starting the first week of May, as Palestinian families and residents of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem started to peacefully protest against the imminent forced eviction from their homes, the Israeli police cracked down on those protests and attacked worshippers at the Al-Aqsa mosque toward the end of the holy month of Ramadan. As Palestinians and their supporters have taken to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to share images and posts about the violence with the world, some have noticed their content suddenly disappear, or had their posts flagged for breaches of the platforms’ terms of use. In some cases, their accounts have been suspended, and in others features such liking and commenting have been restricted.
