The group’s founders say Facebook won’t say why it took ‘California schools to reopen’


Facebook went down, then restored a page run by parents who criticized school covid policies but did not explain its actions to the administrator of the page, “Reopen California Schools,” Jonathan Jatterson, founder of LOVEBYLIFE Business, told LOVEBYLIFE Business.

Acher Scherson said his page, which has more than 19,000 members, was removed on Wednesday without any prior notice. Several other Facebook groups with similar political motives have also been removed, he said. By Friday afternoon, the “reopening of California schools” had been restored.

“When I opened the (page) back-up, I thought there was a warning that there was a certain post that would drive it. No. There was nothing like, ‘Hey, this particular post violated community standards and we set it down.’ “So I don’t know what caused it or why.”

Acher Scherson speculated that the removal might have something to do with the Department of Justice New initiative To combat the increase in violence and intimidation directed at school administrators and other school officials. The policy came after parents attended nationwide meetings to speak out against the Covid-19 restrictions and critical race theory in the curriculum.

The page was shut down during a turbulent week for Facebook, which saw worldwide power cuts and a former employee claiming that Congress knew its products were harmful to users, especially teenage girls.

“I really don’t know why this happened,” said Acher Therson. “There is no indication in our warnings or warnings that we are violating any kind of policy or community standards. So, I am really here in the dark, left to mingle with all the events that happened in Washington this week.

Fox Business reached out to Facebook for comment but didn’t ask for the announcement before. The company said KOVR In a statement Friday: “These groups have been wrongly removed and restored.”

Acher Scherson predicted last week’s ordeal with Facebook would have big implications for future political activism and the reliance on the social media platform to organize.

“This leads to a bigger picture of what censorship and what’s in store,” said Acher Scherson. “What if (Facebook) started pulling out key people and blocking them? You know, it could completely change the pattern of political action.”
