Facebook Spokesman on why Facebook Accounts taken Down on 29th April 2011

We don't know for certain, but this purge of online organising groups could be linked to the wider crackdown on protest by authorities in Britain.
It is unclear why the accounts have been affected. Facebook declined to issue a statement.
However a spokesman said: "The reason all of these profiles came down at once is simple. Facebook's security tools constantly work to maintain our real name culture by removing profiles that are 'fake' or don't belong to an individual person, but rather a campaign, an animal, or an organisation."
"The Met Police did not ask Facebook to take down this content."
The timing and the organisations affected by the the Facebook closures suggest another explanation which our readers will have no difficulty in guessing. Have you heard of the term plausible deniability it seems that Facebook employed it.

However check the Facebook Terms and Conditions has this might be come a new terrain in the battle for freedom on the internet if 29th April shutdown is anything to go by.
