A Note To readers about Sudan Flogging video

You Tube has been taking down this video of a woman being flogged in Sudan. Just as quickly it has been put back up by users concerned about its contents. Although admittedly its contents are disturbing, it is important that the bravery of the person who filmed it and thereby provided a glimpse of the misogyny and brutality of Sudan not have such efforts negated by Yu Tube's misguided censorship. It is for that reason that I am puttingthe video up here, out of the reach of You Tube's censors
