Edit #4: Iran is geobanned too see here Imagine!
Bravo deviantart, bravo, I applaud you
:clap:
Please share this, every bit of support counts. I am probably getting my account perma banned after this journal, but I am voicing this discrimination and I want as many people to see it as possible. 
I know people will have various opinions about this. Voice them as you please, but politics shouldn't meddle with art. This isn't fair. This isn't right. You can't deny me service because some politician says so.
Edit: feb 17th: There's a change.org petition now too

Si vis Pacem
As of March 1st 2018, I can officially say we won. Deviantart is accessible again. I've held back on posting anything until I made sure we have officially won and here it is:

I am beyond grateful for everyone who fought with me, for every single comment, for every friend and stranger who chose to take a stand and join their voices to mine. None of this would have happened if it wasn't for you. Yes, you, you've helped make a difference in the world. That difference ensured that people who have to survive through bad situations day in and day out can still come here for a safe haven away from the grim realities outside. Politics should never restrict art, people should not be discriminated against for whatever reason. 
Our actions didn't stop at Syria, no, they also extended to help Iran, and Crimea which all had been geobanned earlier for the same claims. You've changed the world for over 100 million people. Yes, I know that not
