Reddit permanently suspended my account for linking to Will Van Spronsen's final words. Reddit stands with ICE and is complicit in upholding the fascist state

Submitted by BlackFlagged in Anarchism (edited )

My post was stickied by a mod on r/anarchism and was up for almost 24 hours. Reddit's admins then removed the post and permanently suspended me. The post was simply a link to Van Spronsen's last written words before he was murdered by cops for damaging ICE property:

Spread the word.

Looks like reddit is cracking down on any positive posts about Will.

is "Anti Evil Operations" their reason for deletion? I'm not familiar with reddit logs

Anti Evil Operations is a reddit admin account. It's not a regular admin because it's anonymous - you can't message it and it doesn't have a profile. It's the account they use to delete things like this - things where there's no possibility of appeal.

I got suspended once before but only for a few weeks. It was for celebrating the fact that Mussolini was killed. That was just a regular admin account though.

Damn, that post is where I first found out there was an audio manifesto at all.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is going to make more people migrate over here, it did for me.

  1. seems like an automated message would be rid of typos like "policyto."

  2. if a "suspension" is "permanent," isn't it actually a "ban," rather than a "suspension?"
