Video: The ruling class is censoring the Internet

23 November 2017 — WSWS

Today social media, mobile devices, and global, high-speed networks link the working class like never before and provide a platform for sharing information across national boundaries.

For this reason, corporations like Google are censoring the WSWS, cutting our search traffic by 74 percent to block internet users from accessing socialist and left-wing views.

But we are fighting back. Despite the blacklisting, over 90,000 people accessed a recent WSWS article “Why aren’t trains evacuating people from the path of Hurricane Irma?” making it the most-read WSWS article of all time. Tens of thousands of Amazon workers have accessed the International Amazon Workers Voice, allowing the Socialist Equality Party to develop opposition to censorship, war, and inequality in this key section of the international working class.
