Facebook blocked access to Kisan Ekta Morcha, a page created to support farmers, as protests against new Government laws continue in India. 
 
The pages were blocked on Facebook and Instagram after a live broadcast and restored around three hours later. 
 
When users tried to access the page on Facebook, a message appeared which read:
 
The page was unpublished because 'Kisan Ekta Morcha' goes against our Community Standards on spam. 
 
 
 
On Instagram, admins were not being allowed to share new posts.
 
After reactivating the page, media reports quoted a Facebook spokesperson: "We've restored Kisan Ekta Morcha's FB page and regret the inconvenience caused."
