The popular Hungarian news portal Pesti Srácok is calling on its readers to join a demonstration scheduled for Friday, after the U.S. tech giant Google has shut down their Youtube new channel for the second time. Google, which owns the video streaming platform Youtube, offered multiple, contradictory explanations to their decision, although there is no indication that PsTV had violated any of the channel’s rules, or broken any laws.
“We never thought we would see this day again. We did not think we would ever need (to reuse) the signs that are now just a bad memory. The signs that we used to march in front of Google’s headquarters and demand what we deserve: freedom of expression. Now we are back again”, wrote the new channel on its Facebook page.
The continued by saying that “YouTube has deleted our channel PsTV, which was renamed PsTV after the demise of PestiTV, without giving any reason. Since the deletion without warning, we have received three different reasons, all contradicting the previous one.
We are well aware of what is at stake. We are well aware of the reason for the cancellation. We are saying what the globalists fear most: the truth.
The journalists have called on their viewers and readers to “take to the streets! We have to show that there are many of us, and stand up for our rights, guaranteed by Hungary’s constitution. We must show that an oversized tech company cannot override the laws of our country.
Apart from having our voice taken away, you have also been deprived of your right to information. Today we are being erased for speaking the truth, but tomorrow you will be,
continues their statement. The editors of the Pesti Srácok news portal have then announced that they will organize a demonstration in front of Come Google’s Dara on Friday, 31 March at 5:00 pm.
The Pesti Srácok new portal founded in 2013, counts as somewhat of a right-wing, conservative rabble-rousers in the Hungarian media landscape. They are not shy in expressing their pro-government sympathies in often unorthodox ways, but are doing so in an entertaining, humorous manner. This is the second time though that Youtube shuts down their channel, originally named PestiTV, renamed after the relaunch as PsTV. This is in line with numerous other complaints against the American media giant alleging a concerted and systematic censorship of right-wing, conservative opinions.
