“Breaking barriers and fostering inclusivity, our Ministry is set to delve into the TikTok realm this Thursday, addressing the need to lift restrictions on content about Palestine, amplifying voices and promoting a more nuanced understanding of this critical global issue.”
Dear TikTok Team,
We hope this message finds you well. As representatives of the Ministry, we would like to extend an invitation for a meeting with your team on Thursday to discuss the recent concerns regarding the restriction of content related to Palestine on your platform.
It has come to our attention that there have been instances where content pertaining to Palestine has been restricted or removed from TikTok. Given the significance and sensitivity of this topic, it is crucial to ensure that users are able to freely express their opinions and share information within the boundaries of your platform’s policies.
We understand the challenges of moderating content, particularly when it comes to balancing freedom of expression and avoiding the spread of misinformation or hate speech. However, it is of utmost importance that platforms like TikTok create an inclusive environment where diverse perspectives can be shared and discussed.
During the meeting, we would appreciate the opportunity to discuss the specific measures in place to handle content related to Palestine. We would also like to explore potential ways to improve the handling of such content, ensuring that it aligns with internationally recognized principles of free speech and respects the right of users to express their thoughts.
We believe that by working together, we can find a balanced approach that upholds the values of openness, diversity, and respect for human rights. We look forward to a fruitful discussion on Thursday and hope to find common ground to address this issue effectively.
Please confirm your availability for the meeting and provide us with the preferred time and method of communication. We value your partnership in creating a safer and more inclusive digital space.
