Recently, Github has restricted people from Iran, Syria, and other regions from accessing their private repositories and the static website host Github Pages.

Free and ethical technology use denounces such crony nepotism oppressing individuals from practicing technological liberties and hacker culture. Please consider using as your new host for your projects. Sourcehut is 100% libre, composable, Javascript-free, and does not track you at all!

Is it related to the fact that GitHub is owned by Microsoft, an USA based company that must comply with their country laws, be they stupid as fuck ?


@Xipiryon @gnupropaganda
Probably, but then Github was a US company (San Francisco) prior to the Microsoft acquisition anyway.
