Google, Facebook reject communism-related ads: The case of KNE Festival

It is more than obvious that multinational tech monopolies, such as Google and Facebook, aren’t friendly towards communist ideas. There have been plenty of cases where social media giant Facebook has blocked posts and pages that feature the sickle and hammer symbol or propagandize anti-imperialist policies.

According to an article published today in 902.gr portal, Google and Facebook have recently rejected advertisements promoting the Festival of the Communist Youth of Greece (KNE), in what seems to be another incident of anti-communist discrimination.

FESTA DO AVANTE and KNE-ODIGITIS FESTIVAL: Europe’s largest communist festivals to be held in September

The posters of this year's festivals in Portugal and Greece:
Festa do Avante! and the 46th KNE-Odigitis Festival.
Despite pressure and efforts by reactionary bourgeois political forces to postpone this year’s “Festa do Avante” due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Portuguese Communist Party (PCP) has decided to proceed to the organisation of the festival, ensuring that all the necessary health measures will be taken. 

In a statement, the PCP provide solid answers to its critics about the festival’s organisation. The governmental decree on summer festivals and similar activities stresses out that they can be carried out as long as they comply with the necessary health rules and obligations. “The attack on the party is just an expression of the reactionary forces’ long-standing objective: to question the exercise of political rights and more particularly the activity of the PCP and unions”, points out an article of the Party titled “Why we organize the Avante Festival”.
