"A bunch of our sister accounts have been deleted by Facebook today: Goldsmith Fightback, Occupy Monaco, Bristol Uncut, North London Sol Fed and Open Birkbeck. Looks like FB is clamping down on political organising. If so, it's outrageous censorship. Danger we could disappear at any moment too, so make sure you're following us on Twitter. Screw you Zuckerberg!!"
