“Blogger Caitlin Johnstone recently reported that online payment service PayPal had begun blocking payments to independent media sites known for promoting anti-war messages, particularly with regard to the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

This activism has always been a financial loss to me…but I consider the sacrifice worth it.
It is a disgrace [and should be recognized as criminal] that we are defacto barred from using these resources, due to outside interference and naked bigotry.
