Facebook has some robots to check the content of what you post on your fb-wall. Those robots seems to be biased since they have allowed Mayday Press to publish naked black women, but as soon as a white lady hit the our wall, it was removed. Here' the original post written on Facebook. See the previous blogs about this subject to judge for yourselves.




It seems that Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, did not attend his history classes in highschool. He is now banning people from fb for showing Nick Uts iconic photo of a naked girl burned by napalm. Because she is – surprise – naked.
So MZ sees it as his job to censor history from his media.

We at Mayday Press wonders where his limits is. Will he also ban this photograph of other victims from the same war?
These children were all affected by the American army using 'agent orange' during the Vietnam War. The horrors of this poison, dioxin, is not on show for the public. But are on display for visitors to the Peace Village Ward of Tu Do (Freedom) Obstetrics and Gynaecology Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City. Formerly known as Saigon.
It's not for the faint hearted to visit this ward. The kids living there are all suffering from the chemical mixed and sold by Monsanto, yes that's right, the company who manufactures the Round Up you used in your garden this morning. This happened back in the 1960's.

Today up to four million people are still living with the 'after shock' of this company's ruthless policy of supplying the weed killer.
It's now the fourth generation which are hit by the chemicals. USA has never acknowleged their responsibility for the death and horror they sprayed from planes and choppers during the war.

Mayday Press has hundreds of high quality pictures from Vietnam in our library.
