by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:
“Unity4J,” of the biggest Twitter accounts aimed specifically at supporting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, has been suspended from Twitter without any explanation.
The nonpartisan account had over 10,000 followers and shared news and updates from both left and right wing sources.
Christy Dopf, one of the admins on the account, told The Gateway Pundit that they have not been given a reason for the suspension from Twitter. “We have only received correspondence that our appeal was received and open,” she said. “With over 10k followers, this creates a large gap on the communication Unity4J passed on about #FreeAssange events currently and information on how to be involved/support Julian, and breaking news on his situation.”
Christine Assange, mother of the WikiLeaks founder, has blasted Twitter for the ban.
My son journalist Julian Assange is multi-awarded AND brutally persecuted for exposing high level crimes & corruption
You suspended @Unity4J his global supporter account without reason
If its re-instated immediately we may assume it was a mistake

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters also posted a video condemning the censorship and Big Tech.

Waters took aim directly at Twitter, saying that they are now Big Brother.
“Twitter — you are Big Brother. Now we know it for sure. We always suspected it,” Waters demanded. “You are arm of the thought police. You are an arm of the forces of oppression. You wish to suppress freedom of speech, journalism, freedom of anything probably.”

The account was originally created to promote Unity4J online vigils which brought together supporters and friends of Assange from all over the political spectrum. The goal was to create unity among those who support him and share information on a weekly basis.
