Oliver Ressler // YouTube Channel online again

August 28, 2021

YouTube has ignored my request to put my YouTube Channel online again for more than 7 days. After two days in which several articles in newspapers and magazines were published, hundreds of statements of solidarity were written on social media and blogs, YouTube decided to put my YouTube Channel online again.

YouTube wrote me: “We’ve recently reviewed your YouTube account, and after taking another look, we can confirm that it is not in violation of our Terms of Service. We have lifted the suspension of your account, and it is once again active and operational.”

YouTube remains silent about the real reasons for taking down the channel. I want to thank everyone who was working hard in the background to make YouTube consider its position.

Below are a few texts.
