Massive amounts of information are being labeled and scrubbed from the internet. We aim to capture this content, repost, and make it available to all so that the people can decide what information they want access to, not an algorithm.
We subscribed to over 400 channels on YouTube, the #2 search engine on the web. Two years later more than 300 have been forcefully taken down. The owners of these channels received little warning and were shut down.
Google has been the #1 search engine for years now. The results of your search are now being pre-determined by algorithms. Google is now a gatekeeper and tells you what you have access to. This is not freedom. It is censorship.
Stop Slavery, End Censorship
If you say something is a hoax, even if you are a doctor, you are being silenced.

If you are promoting hysteria, then you can speak?
"The Chinese doctor who was punished after raising the alarm about the coronavirus has died of the disease. Li Wenliang contracted the virus while working at a hospital in the city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak. Conflicting reports on Li's condition began circulating online on Thursday. Two announcements about Li's death by Chinese state media were later deleted, causing confusion and anger." - DW News
"Chen Qiushi is a citizen journalist who had been reporting on the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan. He went missing on February 6 amid rumours that the Chinese government is silencing whistleblowers."

Dr. Robert Epstein's testimony before the Senate concerning Google's search manipulation and its impact on elections.
How did this not make the news?
Constitutionally, tech companies can't be forced to be completely neutral in their results. However, we can all agree that censorship and search biases fundamentally alter the way society receives and processes information.
We are the producers and consumers of information. We have a responsibility to demand an internet where any and all information can be exchanged openly.
Lastly...We Must Acknowledge:
Not all information exchanged will be good or even rational.
Some of it may be hateful. Some of it may be vile. Some if it will be offensive.
However, we need to be allowed to determine that for ourselves, not through some multibillion-dollar omnipotent algorithm.
We are doing everything we can to fight censorship...We are doing everything we can to fight slavery... Will you help us?
