pravda media's business account frozen

3 posts in this topic

along with soviet visuals, pravda media has been a new online store i have been following lately. recently, their FB account posted this news:

As of 1/19/2018, Pravda Media is in need of emergency funds. Our business bank account was frozen for selling merchandise and literature associated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. While we are waiting to see if this issue can be resolved and consult legal representation, we are in need of funds to keep Pravda Media operating.

while i haven't found any news stories on their current predicament just yet, they have set up a donorbox page to help with legal costs. still, i am at a loss as to why their business account has been frozen? has anyone else heard about this?

I have heard of them. In fact, my hometown of Milwaukee remains the only major US city to elect a Socialist mayor- a feat accomplished with three different Socialist administrations. Pravda Media promotes Socialist ideals and sells books, merchandise, and apparel affiliated with Socialist leaders and philosophers. I am not surprised that a group of Socialists would have their hands out to others for help; after all this is the main argument against their views. Yet, their views are popular here in Milwaukee and elsewhere. 

This development is kind of ironic considering the hidden capitalist bend of their socialist site (they accept major credit cards and have installment plans).
