Martin Sellner is the head of this organization (IBÖ) described by the Austrian intelligence services as " agents of the modern far right ". Twitter had unplugged its account last week for violating hate content rules. The 31-year-old activist's Facebook and Instagram accounts were suspended in 2018.

" Google / YouTube confirm that Martin Sellner’s channels have been removed in accordance with our hate speech policies ," Google said in a statement to AFP. The extreme right-wing activists of the identity movement promote on social networks, and through punching actions, racist theses affirming the supremacy of the " white " populations over other human groups.

All social networks, especially Facebook, face unprecedented pressure to crack down on racist or hateful publications on their platforms. A massive boycott of advertising targeting Facebook has led hundreds of international brands to suspend their purchases of social media advertising to 1.73 billion daily users.
