It's not that it highlights differences of opinions between activists,
it is that it is factually inaccurate. The description of the events
around Space for Change is misleading and often false, whatever the
intention of the author. I wouldn't oppose an article with a similar
position/tone being on the newswire, as long as it was based on fact.
This one however, I still think should be hidden.
