In the last few days many animal rights Myspace pages/accounts such as Speak Political, Love the Animals, Free the Caged, Atillas Battle and Animal Aid have been closed/cancelled without explanation. Interestingly, the SHAC and the SPEAK (groups usually in the firing line for repression) myspace pages have not been taken down.
Have any other political campaigns lost their Myspace pages recently or is this just against animal rights groups? The AR movement is usually the first in the firing line maybe because it is a small movement with not so many supporters in the press. If this is allowed to happen without objection then no doubt other activist pages will be next.
I know many in the progressive movements are against using myspace and other corporate networking sites but they are an excellent tool for spreading information, networking and promoting events.
Please, politely contact Myspace and ask them why they are now barring political groups from participating. http://www.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=misc.contact
