Barbados Free Press (BFP) today announced that WordPress.com removed one of BFP’s published stories as a result of an official complaint from the Barbados Association of Non-Governmental Organisations.

WordPress.com is the blogging software and hosting destination utilized by Barbados Free Press. Barbados Free Press wishes to express how much we admire the dedication of WordPress.com to freedom of speech. WordPress has enabled ordinary people in Barbados to fight for true democracy, integrity, transparency and accountability in our society without being unduly exposed to the threats, arsons, harassment and job loss that has been experienced in our country by citizens who disagree with the established political elites.

The removal action by WordPress.com is being reviewed by BFP editors.

Barbados Free Press will make a further announcement in the coming days.
