Vasco Gargalo: Censorship

Censorship | for the first time, I just had a humorous cartoon the “nuclear kamasutra”, censored by Facebook and another social network like instagram. I am not surprised at what has happened, because I have been following a number of criticisms of this social network, with some cases of colleagues by profession and most likely will continue to happen, it seems to me that we do XXI, where freedom of expression must be given to all of us, a right that we have, a right for those who draw, for those who write and especially for those who think. With this situation, can I reflect what kind of society we are becoming? We see on social networks, all kinds of freaks, bold photographs, photographs of other people’s misfortunes, sometimes when I’m around, I see amazing things that shock any human being, things I don’t want to see and much less should be allowed. A humorous drawing (cartoon) should never be censored, it serves to reflect and laugh about topical, this is the goal of a cartoon, make laugh!…. the facebook lords, could not laugh, but managed to remove the work of my page without My permission and without substantiating your reasons.

I will always continue to work in favour of freedom of expression and thought, that is my primary purpose.

I apologize for what happened, but as I explained earlier, there are things that have no explanation. This is one of them!
