After several months, @mobilizon is out!

It seems to be a very good fit in these times of protests when people need to self-organize to fight for their rights, away from large companies which can and have already censored them!

Have a look at the guided tour @Framasoft offers in their blog, it’s full of great ideas.

Congrats to them, I’m happy to support you financially, and it was well worth the wait 🎉

Google banned LBRY Android from the Playstore without warning and for contrived reasons.

This video details their exact communications, reasoning, and hypocrisy.

We believe we are being targeted due to big creators fleeing YouTube for LBRY.
