Facebook BANS Elected Australian Senator


Today Facebook has unpublished Queensland-based Senator Fraser Anning’s official page for “not following Facebook Pages Terms”.

This is the first elected official to be banned by the social media giant.

Many in Australia are calling for their government to protect its citizen’s “basic human right” to freedom of speech. A rally has been planned outside Melbourne’s Facebook office on International Free Speech Day, the 6th of October, where the banned senator plans to address the crowd.



UPDATE from the Courier Mail, 8:30 am:

Senator Fraser Anning’s Facebook taken down

FACEBOOK has taken down Fraser Anning’s page, sparking outrage from the Katter’s Australian Party senator.

Senator Anning had posted a series of statements and videos on the page calling for a ban on Muslim migration to Australia

“Free speech is under attack and communication is being regulated by foreign companies with tendencies of political bias,” the Queensland senator wrote on Twitter on Friday.

“This is completely unacceptable and we will fight this.”

Facebook has an appeals process in regard to its “Pages Terms”. The company declined to comment on whether complaints triggered the page removal.

Facebook employs dedicated teams and technical systems to detect misuse of the social media platform, as well as “harmful conduct towards others, and situations where we may be able to help support or protect our community”.

The Truth Must be Told

Your contribution supports independent journalism

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.

Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.

Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
