(not satire – it’s the UK today)

George Rolph is on Day 14 of a hunger strike protesting against the UK government’s appalling treatment of the disabled, the sick and the most vulnerable people in society.

This morning Facebook deactivated George Rolph’s page without warning – no reason was given.

Presumably the fact that someone in the UK is so appalled by the government’s persecution of the vulnerable and the poor that they’re willing to die to try to stop it, is far too uncomfortable for Facebook to contemplate.

But pretending it’s not happening won’t make it go away.
