I need your help. Please write to YouTube. It’s not just for me. It’s about ALL of our rights to freedom of speech. As some of you will know I compose music and produce videos that speak truth to power on Brexit and our sleepwalk into fascism in Brexit Britain. I make no apology that some of them are “edgy”, reaching the parts that other people’s work do not. However, I do NOT use nudity, violence, drugs or pornography to make my point. As art reflects culture and our society slips deeper into sleaze, lies and cronyism, the means of my video production have followed this trend. It seems that I have upset the Conservative party and we believe that they set their bot farms on me recently. The result of this has been an outright ban of my material on YouTube. I use the site for my business activities as I don’t hide my day job from my activism. As a result I have lost some 15 years of work from the site with massive impact on my ability to continue working.
Please write to YouTube about the freedoms of speech issues that this raises (they only have a complaints channel so use that) and contact them on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and other social media channels. You will need this link to identify the channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCs79-V9-2F36d2hjti4-p0Q If not for me, for future generations who will lose their rights to speak about human wrongs. You can begin here with this Twitter thread. Please retweet the whole of it, add people who care and reply to the tweets. An algorithm caused this to happen and they need to see the other side of the story. At the moment, I am still talking to robots at YouTube and we must break through to a human being.
In case you are wondering about the “ITV Testicle”, here is the video “wot dun it”, with the testicle removed for Facebook:
Some good news. Here is the AC BC track that caused all the fuss. Download Whole Lotta Brexit to support our continuing work.
This is what I have already tried below. YouTube are extremely busy and so they use robots to make automated responses within minutes. It becomes clear that they don’t do any overall analysis of accounts during that time. We must reach a human being. My attack by Tory bot farms on YouTube is not just about the loss of a few satirical videos. All my business content over 15 years is there and this has effectively killed my business. Brexit really has broken my will to continue at this point.
Please help. In the words of The Manic Street Preachers:
