Gemma O'Doherty - "I am now censored for the crime of Journalism"
Supporters of Irish Journalist Gemma O'Doherty gathered outside Google HQ in Dublin yesterday calling for the reinstatement of Ms O'Doherty's Youtube Account . 
 
Ms O'Doherty said she lost 4 years of work on Tuesday after she was permanently banned from Google's video platform youtube over alleged breaches of its rules around hate speech . 
 
Ms O'Doherty was a frequent user of the Video Platform where she held live interviews with other Journalists and political commentators from around Ireland and the world and had a substantial following of 26k + subscribers at the time of her ban
 
Speaking to her supporters outside Google HQ in Dublin , O'Doherty said she is still waiting for an explanation from Google as to why she was banned from its platform . 
 

I am still waiting for an explanation as to why this outrageous attack on my work has happened . They haven't given me an explanation because there is no explanation .
 
 As a Journalist , I have been exposing child sexual abuse at the highest levels of this country and in america , and they know that  . My only crime was to protect innocent children and to stand up against corruption . I am now censored for the crime of Journalism .
 
I have asked Google today , give me one shred of evidence , something that I have said that you can shut down my channel , but they have not been able to come back with even one example of hate speech . How do we judge what hate speech is . Nothing that has ever come out of my mouth has been hateful .  All that I have ever done is to speak out against the corruption that is endemic in this state and that is my only crime
 
 


Meanwhile , Irish Musician Jim Corr has taken to Twitter to lend his support to Ms O'Doherty , calling for an end to censorship of patriot and conservative voices .

gemma can hold her head high , she has done so much good work exposing corruption in Ireland
#
I've watched most of gemma's videos and I cant find one single thing thats hateful . Hate speech is simply speech that governments hate because it goes against their own views .
#
never really thought of it that way , I suppose if you hate someones speech because you disagree then you could call it hate speech because u hate it disagreeing with you
