YouTube Delete Vinny Eastwood's #1 Ranked News Channel For Publishing Video About John Keys Past?
YouTube Delete Vinny Eastwood's #1 Ranked News Channel For Publishing Video About Prime Minister John Key's Past?
The recent John Key video (original link) caused quite a stir among the New Zealand political circuit and was in the running to be one of my most highly viewed videos ever with over 6000 views in just 6 days,
It seemed strangely biblical that on the 7th day my YouTube channel was put to rest.
It appears as though many were unhappy with the video and reported it to YouTube,
This alone was seemingly enough to have my entire account with 3.5 million hits, 16,000 subscribers and 3000 videos deleted permanently without warning!
This is extremely unfair & has caused me a lot of stress because my videos comprise my life's work of public service, it feels like waking up to find one of my kidneys is missing.
I alone created New Zealand's largest online archive of protests & public meetings in history, including thousands of interviews with international guests,
In many cases The Vinny Eastwood Show is the first and sometimes only public platform that many Kiwi activists have ever appeared on, comprising the most diverse range of topics & information to rival any news provider in the country or the world for that matter.
The in depth, humorous and empathetic interview style I have is specifically to make guests feel comfortable,
As they are often persecuted, set up, demonized, tortured, kidnapped, incarcerated, sued or abused for revealing damaging information about corruption, or mind blowing testimony that flies in the face of the common scientific, political & psychological assumptions on which we base our lives.
I provided many of these people the encouragement to open up & tell their story for the first time,
In some cases gave them the strength to continue their activism when on the verge of giving up,
Or live on instead of committing suicide.
I've inspired & often assisted people across the globe to start their own YouTube channels and radio shows so that they may help amplify the voices of those within their communities without me doing it for them.
My loyal audience has supported me the whole time with words of encouragement, food, equipment and donations, without which I would not have been able to do anything of this value for my nation or its people.
You don't have to agree with/believe everything myself or my guests say (I certainly don't) but please support me and the work I do anyway, one day you might be the one in need of a sympathetic ear when no one else believes you, one day you might be the one in need of a public platform that allows you the necessary time to tell your full story the way you want to tell it.
If you've ever been interviewed by me, had your public meeting or speeches published on my channel, or simply enjoyed one of my videos or radio broadcasts before, I need your help!
SHARE this blog and help me convince youtube (very respectfully) to reinstate my channel (be sure to include www.youtube.com/mrnewsguerillamedia) and reassure them I'm not a spammer, scammer or low quality video maker.
A petition can be signed here
If you are a radio host, activist, YouTuber, blogger, journalist or know any with contacts at Google or YouTube that might help, any assistance you can provide to help get the word out about my situation would be appreciated, interviews, supportive articles, videos & comments also help massively to help raise awareness and advocate on my behalf for reinstatement by YouTube. Contact Vinny
I love my wife, I love my country and I love the idea of freedom, fairness and justice for all,
The price I've paid to honor and serve that which I love & believe has been high,
But it's a price I'm willing to pay and I bet I'm not the only one.
Thank you, Vinny Eastwood
PS A big thanks to YouTube & all the hard working folks there for giving myself and other alternative media film makers and radio hosts so many years of great service with your unique and valuable platform.
I hope this positive relationship with you continues for many years to come.
Just to answer a few FAQ's
1 the reason for my channel being deleted was unspecified, spam, gaming, misleading content,
2 the video that was flagged and caused it all was about John Key's past
3 I have all my videos backed up on external hard drives, but would take about 6 months to upload 3000 videos again.
4 YouTube alternatives aren't really alternatives if they don't have the same reach or upload bandwidth and unlimited free upload capacity
5 I have a backup channel http://www.youtube.com/eastwoodvincent and many have mistakenly seen this one and thought that my channel has been restored.
6 This is my deleted youtube channel address http://www.youtube.com/mrnewsguerillamedia
7 If you want to help it be restored then please email this address and politely ask YouTube to restore my channel and why.

Please re-instate Vinny's Youtube account. He has worked tirelessly to provide a platform for those who the mainstream media ignore. He also produces investigative pieces, like the one that is allegedly the reason for his entire channel being removed without notice. It is rather telling to the many of us who view/listen to Vinny's material, that an entire catalog of damaging revelations has been removed from the public eye for no given reason. Just put it back. Thanks.
6/9/2014 06:34:04 am
Unfair treatment to pull down 7 years of work, and why? This is not China or the Middle East. Censorship of political content is unjustified!
6/9/2014 06:44:38 am
I'm gutted this has happened to you Vinny!!!!!
6/9/2014 06:53:13 am
Yeah its absolutely ridiculous... they are trying to stop the Planet Key song saying its "advertising"... advertising what?? It doesn't mention any other political party... it has no product endorsement... so its what advertising National?? OK yeah its advertising the truth... and we cant have that eh Vinnie...
6/9/2014 07:03:27 am
I'm behind you mate.. You had me a no body on your show and listened.. And you tell people the truth and they can't handle it.. I like that a lot.. Youtube told me my court evidence that I had shot myself was somehow copyrighted by some unknown entity and one or two other videos are still flagged.. So give it too them.
6/9/2014 07:14:07 am
Shutting down Vinnie Eastwoods account is an excessive draconian effort to suppress dissent and shows how democracy in New Zealand is a sham! I think we should stop using you tube as there are other viable and free alternatives such as Vimeo, Dailymotion, ZippCast and Metacafe. Do the right thing and allow freedom of speech or sink without trace as the world awakens to the truth!
6/9/2014 07:15:19 am
its sad that transparency isn't a option...this just proves key has lots to hide...don't let them stop the truth from getting through...you do a great job vinny...sad to see youtube has removed your channel...youtube should put it back up
6/9/2014 07:15:46 am
Censorship of this sort is not only undermining the people's right to access what is in 'the public interest' for them under the International Bill of rights it could also be a sign that You tube is no longer a medium millions can trust!
6/9/2014 07:26:51 am
If NZ is a democratic country you should prove it by reinstating all of Vinny Edwards work on utube we are not China or are we??
6/9/2014 09:07:53 am
My predictive said Edwards should be reinstate Vinny Eastwoods videos as it seems undemocratic to delete them
6/9/2014 07:35:23 am
I am extremely concerned about the fact that this Blogger/YouTube member has had his ENTIRE YouTube account removed for voicing his opinion about a political leader. I could have understood this rather drastic approach had he been inciting violence or encouraging people to break the law, but I watched the entire thing before it was removed and at NO TIME did he do any of this. There was no nudity either. So can someone from #YouTube please come back to us and let us all know why his entire account was removed? Last time I looked we lived in a democracy and not a dictatorship?!
6/9/2014 07:35:49 am
I am utterly shocked, this is media suppression before our very eyes, two weeks out from an election.
6/9/2014 02:07:06 pm
Yep Cinny Monn this is happening to Vinny as we Speak. He is there for the Voiceless, the Oppressed and the Hopeless Cases who have been trodden on time and time again. This is an OUTRAGE.
6/9/2014 07:54:34 am
This is highest rated radio show in New Zealand and you're going to shut it down for political reasons? That makes it very clear to see what is going on.
6/9/2014 08:13:26 am
Well obviously this can only but prove what a wicked, wicked man Vinny Eastwood is.. for so many people of all ages to be entertained and informed truthfully in layman's terms is what Kiwi-style is all about..with elections coming up.. A lot of people are sick of the lies and want good old Kiwi style again.. honesty...integrity.. and who better to put it it to everyone.. Vinny Eastwood.... He has thousands of fans... please restore Vinny Eastwood.
6/9/2014 08:25:42 am
To censor is to silence our Freedom to SPEAK. What a sad state of affairs that YouTube has succumb to the political agenda of dictatorship :/
Tried to email YouTube but got bounced back so here ya go,
7/9/2014 12:21:55 am
So This Is What Happens When You Email YT Asking To Give Vinny His Channel Back...NOT SURPPRISED..
6/9/2014 09:42:04 am
Vinny is a true friend, he has been there for me in some of my darkest hours. I would trust him with my life. Everyone should know that he would stick up for you if you were in the situation he is now in with his channel being deleted. If you have ever enjoyed so much as 5 minutes of his show, you owe it to him to take 5 minutes of your time to write Youtube over this. Vinny is selfless and completely devoted heart and soul to the betterment of humanity. His channel being removed is a complete travesty and an outrage. Show your support of this most awesome warrior because he does the same for all of us all day, every day.
6/9/2014 10:44:05 am
Tyranny is in place, only unity of mankind can make sure that freedom has a chance! Therefore we need to support Vinny Eastwood as he is a courageous man fighting for the truth which sets us free!
6/9/2014 11:04:36 am
Friends at Youtube, please consider these comments by fans of Vinnie Eastwood who watch his videos on Youtube. Whatever the violation may have been, Vinny was not given a reasonable change to redeeem himself. Please give him a chance to correct any violations which may be present.
6/9/2014 11:23:31 am
Vinnie Eastwood has worked hard and long to inform New Zealanders AND the World about topics that are never discussed without bias on mainstream media outlets. PLEASE be honourable and reinstate his youtube channel as soon as possible. Thank you!
6/9/2014 11:27:03 am
6/9/2014 11:27:20 am
Bring back my favourite NZ News Channel. This is outrageous to take down the entire Youtube Channel for political reasons.
6/9/2014 11:40:46 am
You Tube,shutting down Vinny's channel is no good for anybody. Not for him,not for the viewers,and certainly not for YOU. Banning free speech is the last thing we need these days,He's not a scammer,just a brilliant,passionate young man who is doing what he thinks is the right thing to do...allowing his guests to transmit the world their knoledge,which can't be done by MSM. Please,rethink your desicion!! Greetings from Argentina... Mariana.
6/9/2014 12:12:37 pm
This is absolutely crazy!! What a gross overreaction - what happened to freedom of speech?! We need independent media to keep the rest of the media accountable. Vinny does a great job and his channel and work should be reinstated now. Disgusting.
6/9/2014 12:21:30 pm
6/9/2014 02:04:56 pm
What is the matter with YOU TUBE. We would like Vinny Easetwoods YOU TUBE Channel reinstated. Whats wrong with you - YOU TUBE. Oh btw an Apology to Vinny and his Loyal Followers would also be Welcomed.
6/9/2014 02:35:33 pm
sorry to hear about your channel man, although i didnt agree with you all the time, you are friggin entertaining. I hope you had back ups, and maybe start a facebook page to embed your videos on.
6/9/2014 03:17:34 pm
Political Corruptness Rearing it's Ugly Head . Their Actions Just Validate The Truth . Money Talks , Power to the People Vinney ! Keep At Them Mate !
6/9/2014 03:22:20 pm
I signed the petition, and tweeted: https://twitter.com/hashtag/MRNEWSguerillamedia?src=hash
6/9/2014 03:24:48 pm
Please reinstate Vinny Eastwood's utube channel! If you don't like it then don't watch it! Many many people do enjoy Vinny's channel and we want the freedom to watch it, our freedom of choice!
6/9/2014 04:37:03 pm
I'm grateful for all the information I have received from you Vinnie, you are clearly a fearless warrior and a decent human being. Whether your vibrations/feelings are positive or negative, the universe supports you! This is how the law of attraction works, we attract what we feel, not what we think!
6/9/2014 04:56:56 pm
What? This is unbelievable! Bring back Vinny's channel!Youtube into politics? WTF? What terms & conditions did Vinny Eastwood break?
6/9/2014 10:31:49 pm
Vinny you're the man! Regardless of what happens you have brought a massive amount of attention to the scumbaggery that the scumbags of the world have done. I do hope you get your old channel back I miss the 2 hour interviews already. Even if you don't like you said in an interview once before (that I ironically viewed first thing the morning your channel was taken down on another channel) was just how fast the new content builds up after you've lost all your old stuff. I just wanted to show my support for the man who I've learned more from than any other man, ever. Good luck!
6/9/2014 11:28:48 pm
Ditto to all the above. Put back our videos please.
6/9/2014 11:35:08 pm
Utube The haves are trying to gag the havenots in our small country. Vinnie for years has been a voice for the us. Please re-enstate him.
6/9/2014 11:53:30 pm
Very disappointed...... BRING BACK Vinny Eastwood News Channel. I'm totally disgusted that YouTube would be scared, bullied or pressured into shutting down our beloved news channel. Someone must be very afraid of the truth. Those that have nothing to hide --- HIDE NOTHING. Apparently the truth is frightening to the cowards and they are only proving that what has been said is the truth! Bring back Vinny Eastwood so that he can finish his life work and help our world. Don't be a part of this censorship - I haven't wanted to visit YT since this happened because I know you've shut down Vinny and if you don't want the truth to be told then I wonder how many of the videos on YouTube have any value at all if your willing to censorship the one that did have value???
7/9/2014 12:10:13 am
Keys a scumbag..FACT.. But ALLLLL Vinny's Other Videos and Guests were amazing, full of great information and willing to share there knowledge.. That's what I miss..
7/9/2014 02:07:25 am
Why have you removed Vinny Eastwood's video's back on Youtube? Is this because you have been ordered to by the dirty Nats. This video is valued as a true source of what our supposed leader has been up to DIRTY POLITICS!!!!!
7/9/2014 02:12:04 am
The freedom I value is the freedom to speak our mind which Vinny Eastwood dose very well. For #Youtbe to stud down his accord like they have can mean one thing to me ... He is hitting the powers at be where they hurt the most and opening the eyes of the public to what is really going one in the world and the corruption in our system. @Youtube is making a name for its self as #Thugs closing down anything there political thug friends tell them to. Try @Vimeo.
7/9/2014 06:16:57 am
The media has shut Social Credit out of this election, as well as the Independent Coalition. I didn't realise that you tube was also so controlled. Once you start looking as if you might get some change going, someone somewhere will have something done about it.
7/9/2014 06:26:30 am
What happen to freedom of speach? That is so wrong! so now we have to worry about Youtube deleting our account because of one video? How corrupt!
7/9/2014 10:38:25 am
This is fairly typical of YouTube. Yours is not the first, nor will it be the last unjust censorship by YouTube, Vinnie. The upside is, you know you are striking a chord with TPB that they don't like, which means carry on what you're doing, your support is strong and growing stronger. Oh, and to YouTube, reinstate Vinnie's account, there is no justification for deleting it. Time to look for alternatives.
7/9/2014 11:55:25 am
speaking of outrage.... its amazing when real truth is spoken how quickly the hammer comes down! in wellington back around 2003 a wealthy donor published a free newspaper called "Outrage" and the first edition was handed out around parliament and down town with the second edition to be in all major magazine shops the next week.. the front page was all about 911 been an inside job. A few days later the website dissapeared, the ph number listed in the mag went dead and the second edition never made it to print.. it was swiftly and quickly totally shut down... never to be seen again and that was 10 years ago. ive also had my youtube videos tampered with.. my expose of the coca cola representative sent to nz to sell to the public aspartame on a paid for "news item" on tvnz was suppressed on youtube and search engines so that very few people have viewed it.. suppression and corruption is very alive and well and the control of tv media in nz by the nzcia is complete. they in fact use a cia controlled pr company to script the entire tv1 and tv3 news shows every day to steer public opinion and write our news to suit their agenda which is very pro Key who has always been one of their donkeys. John Key is CIA through and through. Period. thats how he got in and thats why the news execs not so subtley push him always. He has used the sas in nz to order the murder of nzers who know too much about him at least 3 times since been in the power seat.. he is way more dangerous than the vast majority can fathom. Youtube will not budge. its completely controlled and its a corporation so no one can be directly contacted to appeal to.. so id suggest switching to a more open video hosting company.. forget youtube they utterly suck!
7/9/2014 03:38:02 pm
Taking down Vinny's youtube channel is ludicrous. One of the key (so to speak) promotional tools at youtube's inception in 2005 was that it provided a forum to everyone who wanted to convey their message there. The upside to this situation is that Vinny's message obviously had value and truth behind it as had someone not been threatened by it, his channel would not have been deleted. Keep up the good work, Vinny!
7/9/2014 04:13:08 pm
Vinnie Eastwood has been providing a vital service to the public of New Zealand. There are many important political events that happen around the country that don't even get a mention on our main stream news. Vinnie's You Tube channel provides the public with a very necessary independant journalistic perspective. I value the stories that He presents and consider him to be fullfilling a very necessary role in offering a more truthfull story than the one that I tend to hear over the national television and radio airwaves. I am appalled to learn that his entire youtube channel www.youtube.com/mrnewsguerillamedia was completely shut down without any warning. This is criminal and I demand that this educational public service be reinstated immediately.
7/9/2014 07:38:54 pm
Vinny is a fear porn monger, so I am glad his crappy false videos got pulled. He does not have the highest rated radio show in NZ. He is a nobody who believes in imaginary chemtrails. What an idiot.
Vinny Eastwood is a Voice to be reckoned with!
8/9/2014 10:11:26 am
Vinny like all of us has the right named "FREEDOM OF SPEECH" under section 14 of the Bill of Rights Act 1990.
9/9/2014 07:04:38 am
Boo hoo...cry me a river....
9/9/2014 07:07:46 am
If you can't do the time...don't do the crime...
9/9/2014 07:21:17 am
He wasnt abusing the rights of anyone.. thats the whole point.. john keys criminal past deserves to be known by the public.. hes done criminal things and hes NOT doing any time for it, in fact he has gone to criminal lengths to cover up his dodgy past...
9/9/2014 09:11:36 pm
This is only the beginning of th censorship. I have been noticing that vids in my folders are being deleted by youtube for no reasons these days. Once they would have said it was copy right issues or whatever. Also they would allow you to see what it was they deleted but now the title goes as well.
9/9/2014 09:44:47 pm
Please bring back the Vinny Eastwood YouTube channel i'm gutted it's gone Vinny's is one the best channels on YouTube
12/9/2014 10:17:21 am
Youtube and google conspire with Jewish sayanim to diminish the morale of the people of the world using censorship because this reduces the public's ability to resist the take over of their cultural and political institution. This is called SEDITION. Vinny Eastwood is one of history's greatest talk show Truth advocates. But we the people are not permitted by the elite to hear him. email@example.com
14/9/2014 04:20:53 pm
Just sent this to Google's/Facebook feed back page
21/9/2014 12:50:08 am
Well done Vinny for all of your hard work. I signed the petition to get your account back. It sux that they have taken it down but on the bright side, you still reached a lot of people and you still continue to reach a lot of people. Thank you for being another open minded person and I think you are amazing for helping people speak their minds. Keep up the good work :) :) :)
Something is missing! Something is just not the same when I watch my subscription feed on YouTube. The Vinny Eastwood "Call Synth Line" is missing! As cheesy and dutch gabber techno as it sounds.. It's you, and I know that shortly after I will probably learn something new, or be inspired by you to do something new! I hope to re-subscribe from your channel ASAP.
21/9/2014 05:09:17 am
Have you looked into using Bitcoin for donations?
1/10/2014 12:39:38 pm
I am so very disappointed about Vinny Eastwood's youtube channel (mrnewsguerillamedia.com) being removed. I love his show and feel that his reporting on important issues is so much better than the main media, which I have not looked at for about 3 years now. This removal of his channel is really unfair, as he is so professional, and he has a brilliant sense of humour. Please, please give him his channel back. It is his job and his way of existence. Surely everyone deserves a second chance. I really miss his show. I would ask you to please reinstate his channel.
