Re: The removal of the group ！我 相 信 可 以 召 集 １００，０００個 厭 惡 民 建 聯 的 人！(referred to as ‘Group’ below)
The Group, consisting of more than 84,000 members, has been removed, without any prior notice nor warning, yesterday. I am, along with many of our members, appalled by such an arbitrary removal. One cannot but be left to wonder if Facebook has acted under undue political influence.
Contract aside, Your Company’s act of removal is a striking and outrageous example of the restriction of freedom of expression on the internet. Our Group is set up upon the cause of revealing to the people the named political party’s, DAB of Hong Kong S.A.R., hypocritical stance of political will. Our Group ‘！我 相 信 可 以 召 集１００，０００個 厭 惡 民 建 聯 的 人！’ (I believe I can find 100,000 people who despise DAB) has contained no content that infringes copyrights nor has it content that infringes the rights of other Members whatsoever.
DAB, being a heavily pro-Communist political party, is in no doubt not an advocate of freedom of speech, as shown by their recent refusal to attend LegCo meetings that led to cancellations and suspensions of such meetings so as to prevent other LegCo members from speaking by the right conferred and obligation imposed upon by the people.
I am utterly shocked that Facebook has decided to join the rank of the tyrannies and have become a guardian of the named political party in the non-democratic society of Hong Kong, which seems to be a remarkable contrast against and in light of the integrity shown by Google recently.
I, along with other members of the Group, demand an explanation as well as the restoration of the removed Group and all the content as soon as possible.
