Yes, I have been banned again, this time for seven days. In addition, Facebook are now investigating my account and I was required to provide government-issued ID to verify that I am indeed a human.
The reason I was banned this time was for sharing the Daily Mail coverage on this. Daily Mail, who have also shared this article on their Facebook page, have not been banned. Nor have the ABC who shared a similar article on their Facebook page.
To recap, my first two bans were for sharing my keynote address, published by New Matilda. I was banned straight up the first time because due to previously posting the clip for 8MMM last year, Facebook have deemed me a repeat offender. I have additionally had another admin account on my Facebook page banned because it shared New Matilda coverage which was still deemed unacceptable despite the header image being pixelated.
I am therefore deliberately being targeted. By both Facebook, and by malicious people on a campaign to disable my page.
Facebook, at their end, have done nothing. I have sent numerous reports which have gone completely unacknowledged. I have sent emails which have hit dead ends. I have tried, through their systems to seek resolution. They have not acknowledged a single thing. Nor have they made any indication that they will address their systems to stop this happening. They have issued a response to New Matilda today which states as such. They are more than willing to not only allow ceremony to be censored, but also to allow a long time user to be targeted in such a way. At this stage, due to Facebook's complete lack of accessibility for recourse and review, my hands are completely tied.
I gave a speech in good faith on International Women's Day, a day Facebook saw fit to acknowledge with a tacky little welcome image. My only crime has been to share that keynote when it has become available. Through their actions, they have additionally, as well as demeaned culture and women, demeaned my words and turned them into something they are not. My words, while an empowering rallying cry, were never meant to be used in this way. I resent the fact that Facebook, through their lack of cultural knowledge and respect for women, have turned them into this. They fail to provide a safe place for Aboriginal people and for women. Indeed, through the selective applying of their "community standards", they continually allow it to be an unsafe space.
At this stage, this is all I have to say.
EDIT: The petition is here
Update: 16/03/16 - I have posted a statement on Facebook regarding a change in the situation as of last night. I have republished that statement here. Additionally, the Facebook link to the Daily Mail page no longer exists. I can only assume this means they have also had this link removed. This really is not the answer, Facebook.
