"Yesterday U.S. Secretary of State Mike #Pompeo attempted to trigger the 'snapback' of UN sanctions against #Iran. He failed.

The snapback option is part of the Dispute Resolution Mechanism that is laid out in article 36 and 37 of the nuclear deal with Iran. The UN Security Council adopted the deal in its resolution 2231. When the U.S. move was first announced we explained in detail why the it would fail and summarized:

So. GitHub started blocking access for Iranian users.


So much for free speech, free software and freedom in general. There is a support page on GitHub itself.

What never ceases to amaze me is how readily organizations do it. I mean sure, GitHub is US based and now they are under Microsoft too so they can't ignore their government regulations even if they are idiotic and destructive. Of course you can't expect them not to comply but compliance can be different. You can do it reluctantly, a bare minimum just to get it done and with the least possible negative impact. Like "let's block connections from Iran and be done with it".

Or you can do it eagerly and to the best of your ability to maximize the impact. Like GitHub not just blocking current Iranian users but everyone who ever had any activity from Iran in the past, locking repositories without warning and refuse to let owners download backups so they can migrate.

In Nazi Germany most people also just followed orders. But some of them went further and developed gas chambers.

P.S. And obviously there is no better way to make a nation less anti-american than targeting their free software developers.
