Banned on YouTube // "Born Free" by M.I.A.

This music video of the song "Born Free" by UK artist M.I.A. was reportedly banned from YouTube for its graphic content (there's your warning). It is a chilling portrayal of the abuses of war, genocide and the things we do in the name of "national security." The New York Daily News reported, "M.I.A. is no stranger to political activism, being the daughter of a Tamil revolutionary who sought the creation of an independent state in Sri Lanka."
