On September 19, 2013, the Facebook Fan Page of the artist Erik Ravelo, currently working as the creative director of Fabrica in Italy, was censored by Facebook, deleted, and taken off the popular social media website. Translated to English from Italian, Facebook communicated to Ravelo, “Your page has been removed because it infringes our conditions of use. Your page was labelled for harmful content." The Cuban artist, author of the former campaign of solidarity of the "Unhate Foundation," was previously censored by the social network for his new series of images titled, “The Untouchables." Published on the site on July 22, 2013, the series of images obtained 20553 "Likes" in a few days. The seven portraits, which depict the infringements of the rights of children, were considered extreme by Facebook the series was locked from distribution on the website. On August 30, 2013, Facebook removed the image of a priest and child, created by Ravelo to denounce the abuse of minors behind the religious walls. Facebook then forbid Ravelo from uploading any more images for seven days, before taking down his Fan Page in its entirety on September 19, 2013. While Ravelo has appealed the decision, if his appeal is not granted, his page will be deleted permanently. “This campaign promotes the rights of children, there is no reference to harm, I find no reason for censorship of this nature,” says Ravelo. Please add your name to the petition below and voice your support for Ravelo's Fan Page to be reinstated on Facebook and for his art to be seen by the millions who visit the networking site daily. Say no to censorship!

    This is amazing work, and taking it down is censorship. It is supposed to piss people off because this is happening around the world and this is every day life for some of these children.

    Don't understand why Facebook censored his page...What is more sacred than the innocence of a child? Doubt there was ill intention. It's a truth said out loud about child abuse through he world, usually committed by very proper people who Facebook would not even suspect and probably not even think about censoring.
