Eventbrite, the ticket-selling company, sent Riley Gaines a notification stating that she has been prohibited from promoting her University of California, Davis speech scheduled for November 3. The email was received by the institute from Eventbrite, stating that their listing does not comply with the rules.

“Hello, we wanted to talk about your event called “Protecting Women’s Sports with Riley Gaines,” the email began. Due to Gaines’ failure to adhere to Eventbrite‘s stipulated rules and guidelines, their event cannot be included on the listing.

In an effort to promote inclusiveness, they enforce rules that prevent any forms of discrimination, harassment, disrespect, threats, violence, or targeting of specific individuals or groups based on their race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, immigration status, gender identity, sexual orientation, military experience, age, or disability.

As a result, Gaines’s event is no longer accessible to the general public. Gaines’ Eventbrite account may be suspended or permanently closed if they frequently or significantly violate the rules.

According to Eventbrite’s management, it is expected that women should be open to using the same changing rooms as men who claim to be women. On the website, it is not allowed for groups to endorse conventional women’s sports or voice unfavorable views on transgender issues.

Eventbrite deleted the “Let Women Speak Austin” webpage

The webpage for “Let Women Speak Austin” was deleted by the company in the month of July. The objective of this event was to protect certain areas, such as women’s bathrooms, which are exclusively allocated for female use.

Eventbrite declared that publishing that listing contradicts their policy of advocating “discriminatory content“. Nevertheless, Eventbrite allows the promotion of rallies supporting Hamas’s ideas, without being classified as hateful.

“Stop the Genocide Free Palestine” is an event taking place on November 1st at The LGBT Community Center in New York City, which individuals using Eventbrite can participate in. The event scheduled for October 7 is explained in a summary on Eventbrite.

Palestinian militants achieved a successful breakthrough in Israel’s Gaza blockade on the morning of October 7th. Israel has embarked on a major confrontation with the inhabitants of Gaza. People in Gaza have been deprived of food, water, and electricity by them. Furthermore, whole families have been killed due to their airstrikes in the vicinity.

Following 75 years of employing violence, the Israeli state is now carrying out this assault on Gaza. The focus of this conversation will be on understanding the historical context leading to the present situation, examining the present developments, and fostering international solidarity in advocating for the freedom of Palestinians.
