Facebook bans UK far-right groups: Should social media decide what people get to say? (DEBATE)

Facebook has put a permanent ban on some of the UK’s biggest far-right groups – under a new category defined as ‘dangerous individuals and organisations’.

All the groups banned by Facebook have far-right or extreme views and have become infamous for promoting negative attitudes towards certain groups in society.

So far the biggest organisations banned haven’t given any reaction.

However, the Knights Templar, another group banned by Facebook for the same reason – has called it a move that would ‘make the Soviets blush’.

From Prison to Politics: Mexico’s Hot Land (Dispatch 4)

The former leader of a group of vigilantes in Mexico has just been released from prison, and is now eyeing a career in politics.

Hipólito Mora was imprisoned on murder charges following a December 2014 shootout in Michoacán between his and another vigilante group led by Luis Antonio Torres, a.k.a. “El Americano.” The clash resulted in 11 deaths — including Mora’s son.

VICE News met with Mora in Michoacán to find out what his political goals are following his release from prison, and whether the release of “El Americano” means another shootout can be expected.

How “The Viagras” Got Their Name: Mexico’s Hot Land (Dispatch 3)

Since the arrest of one of Mexico’s most wanted drug lords — Knights Templar leader Servando Gómez Martinez, a.k.a. La Tuta — authorities have continued to crack down on the drug gangs seeking to fill the power vacuum created by La Tuta’s arrest. One of these gangs is the Viagras.

VICE News exclusively obtained the first interview with Viagras leader Nicolás “El Gordo” Sierra since he went into hiding in December. Viagras members say they’re simply a vigilante group, but Mexican authorities have found them to be involved in drug trafficking. We asked Sierra about the group and its origins.
