Black Triangle Website Back Online After Daily Mail Has It Shut Down

September 3, 2014

The Daily Mail was successful in shutting down the Black Triangle Campaign website by serving the disability campaign a ‘cease and desist’ letter from their lawyers.

Daily Mail Shuts Down BlackTriangle WebsiteThe Daily Mail ran a story about Nina Charbecks, claiming that she works four jobs/35 hours per week, and is £400 a month worse off than she would be if she received disability benefit. Online Bloggers found inconsistencies about this report and blogged about it.

After writing a blog on this issue, BlackTriangle received an email from their hosting company, Orange, informing them that their website is suspended until  “… any pages referring to Nina Charbecks the person. This is a breach of privacy laws displaying photos without permission. Your account is suspended until you make contact and change this.”

With the website suspended, Black Triangle simply could NOT gain access to their website to edit any of their website.  Since then, it has been made clear to BlackTriangle that Orange – their hosting company – has received a ‘cease and desist’ letter from the lawyers involved in this case.

This is an outrageous infringement of our rights to free speech. The Daily Mail has the money, the power and the platform yet, when they are challenged on the accuracy of their stories, they cowardly hide behind a legal system which favours the powerful.

Think about this for a second – the Daily Mail is using its financial muscle to silence ordinary folk who are only after the truth. If they can do this to BlackTriangle then who is next?

Black Triangle will never be silenced from telling the truth. Anyone who defames disabled people can expect us – it’s in our name” – Black Triangle Anti-Defamation Campaign in Defence of Disability Rights

Black Triangle’s website has now back online after Orange allowed access to the BlackTriangle webmaster to remove the offending article but this shows how low the right-winged press will go to continue their attacks on the disabled community in the UK.

    Papers claim to believe in freedom of speech yet they try and stop it about themselves

    Wait, hold up it wasnt the daily mail (never thought id be depending the paper) that did that, it was the woman in question (who in my opinion isnt telling us the truth here about things, something is very odd) who complained and brought legal action into it. So you need to be careful throwing accusations about a major newspaper, even one that is so hated. I think you need to edit this article to correct that misleading fact.

    Even if one bears in mind that the Daily Wail seems to have told their shysters to demand that the story is taken down, this does not seem to make sense.

    According to the wimps at the hosting company, Orange, the website was suspended until “… any pages referring to Nina Charbecks the person. This is a breach of privacy laws displaying photos without permission. Your account is suspended until you make contact and change this.”

    Exactly what the letter from the alleged lawyers stated seems unclear, but there is no such thing in English Law as “privacy laws” and there is certainly no requirement to obtain the permission of any person shewn in a photo before one publishes it. The Daily Wail may own the copyright of the photos, or the copyright may still be with the photographer, but that seems not to have been mentioned by the letter and was apparently not why the pips at Orange decided to squeak.

    Besides, wasn’t the Daily Wail upset when Max Mosley won his privacy case against News International? Didn’t they claim that the High Court was trying to bring in privacy laws against the will of Parliament and that it would infringe one’s Freedom of Expression?

    There’s a word for that – hypocrisy.

    There are no rights in Normdom; there are only privileges, and Normies (non-autistic individuals) earn most of them by ‘choosing to first ‘be born’ as Normal – and then live as (power-obsessed amoral predators) and continually war for dominance.

    In contrast, to be autistic puts one so far ‘into the hole’ regarding earning ‘the privilege of continued existence’ that one’s actual performance is of little real consequence. The burden of being autistic is so great that it’s impossible to truly be a part of the Volksgemeinschaft – one cannot be Gleichschaltung’d enough to suit one’s Normie masters.

    Note that the above statements are an attempt to explain the observable behaviors of the non-autistic majority culture; and while it seems impossibly dark and forbidding, it does seem to fit the reality of existence by describing the seeming thinking behind the behavior,
