Fighting Censorship, and the Future of my 18+ Videos

I’ve written recently about the action YouTube have taken against me, for a Donbass video from 2014, showing the effects of war, and Ukrainian shelling of civilian areas:

For the next 12 days of my ban from YouTube, there will be more articles here on the Truth Speaker. And, once I’m back uploading video reportage to my YouTube channel, things will be a bit different.

– There will be no further 18+ content on my YouTube channel.

Such 18+ content as there is, I’ll put here on the Truth Speaker, in the correct context as to when it was, and what it was.

On the Truth Speaker, my own site, I’m able to bring you reportage with no censor. And to make sure that it still reaches the audience it needs to, I’ll flag it up with a link on YouTube.

And of course, there’s always your help in liking, sharing, retweeting and more. Together, we’ll beat censorship, and get the truth out!

YouTube and my 18+ 2-Week ‘Technical Break’

Sorry to say I won’t be able to bring you any video reportage for the next 2 weeks. YouTube have penalised me twice in two weeks – for old videos from the Donbass war.

The videos were indeed 18+ but that’s war, sadly, and they’d been on my channel for a long time, marked as 18+. So, why now?
 
Well, I don’t know, but if I get one more strike against my channel, YouTube will terminate my account, deleting the near 5000 videos there. And, it’s YouTube, they do that.
 
I’ve also got a 2 week ban from posting video material. Of course, I could post it elsewhere, but it never has the same impact, good reportage gets lost. Better to focus all attention, energy, on doing even better reportage after the return!
 
I’ve now removed all 18+ material from my YouTube account, so there should be no further problems after this 2-week period, the first of its kind in near 4 years.
 
As for the 18+ videos, I’ve saved them all, and will think what best to do with them.
