The image above of Syrian Dana Bakdounes was originally uploaded on October 21 as part of a photo campaign by the Facebook group "The Uprising of Women in the Arab World". On October 25, Facebook removed two photos of Bakdounes from the group's account after they were reported for violating the site's community standards.
Since fighting the initial removal of content, individual administrators of the Facebook group have been temporarily banned from the site, sparking concerns of censorship.
