YouTube capitulates (again)

5 01 2021

YouTube has caved in again, falling on its face before dictators, and geoblocked Rap Against Dictatorship’s “Reform/ปฏิรูป.” The rap was released in support of the “campaign to reform the royal institution…”. We assume Khaosod means the monarchy.

When we checked, the YouTube version had been viewed 9.8 million times since 13 November.

It was only a week ago that the regime was griping and threatening social media providers, and YouTube has accommodated its campaign to limit freedom of expression.

As we currently understand it, “Reform/ปฏิรูป” remains available using a VPN, at Vimeo, and at Spotify.

Their earlier protest rap is, hopefully, not blocked.
