According to a report by “Bild”, YouTube has deleted videos from the #allesaufdentisch series. These are said to have violated “guidelines on medical misinformation”. The artist’s lawyer, on the other hand, speaks of a “new dimension of breaking the law”.
A report from image According to the video platform YouTube has deleted several videos of the critical artist campaign #allesaufdentisch. In the video series, artists discuss the corona crisis and the government’s corona policy with experts. The experts are people who, according to the artists, are neglected in the corona debates.
Of the image there is therefore an email confirming that YouTube has removed several videos from the series from the platform. According to YouTube, the offending videos are said to “violate our guidelines on medical misinformation”. Problematic are “claims about vaccinations against COVID-19 that contradict the unanimous expert opinion of local health authorities or the World Health Organization (WHO)”, such as the image quoted from the mail.
The deleted videos should include an interview on the topics of incidence and anxiety with the Leipzig mathematics professor Stephan Luckhaus and the neurobiologist Gerald Hüther, as the tabloid continues to report. A request from the newspaper, which specific statements had led to the deletion of the videos, went unanswered by YouTube.
The initiators of the videos, Volker Bruch and Jeana Paraschiva, are appalled:
“We try to get into conversation with people. That is democracy. Wiping out our voices is the sad opposite of that.”
You want to take legal action against YouTube, it continues. The artist’s lawyer, Joachim Steinhöfel, also spoke up in the newspaper. The 59-year-old spoke of a “new dimension in breaking the law through YouTube”. It would be “ice cold, legitimate voices silenced,” said Steinhöfel.
