Burma in chains, part three! (second one)

The very sparkle this blog owes its own existance to, Stopnow100's "Burma in Chains" video is now three steps away from the start. In other words, we have the Part 3.

Once again, I must say.
Once again, and half a minute shorter...

Part 3 was first released on January 23rd-24th. It was definitely graphical in nature... Even gruesome, one would say. But it hit the point, no doubt: just a few hours later it had more than 10.000 views and a lot of interesting comments, from a lot of people never seen before.

And then, baby, everything went black...

The video has been removed by YouTube. The reason? Here's what Stopnow100 told us:

YouTube has deemed the content of the third video inappropriate. We do not know exactly what the reason is for this, but we are working on a modified version to then propose. Hopefully someone has downloaded it, and will then upload it on some other site. We will let you know.
We do not know exactly what the reason is for this...
I'm pretty sure there are formal justification for YouTube behaviour. YT Terms of Use give those guys pretty much "life or death" power on the videos they publish. But whatever the formal reason, you can find other videos offending the very same rule, which are not removed.

Oh, yes, YT guys would reply that if we flag those video too, they will aso be removed. But why would we?

I could go on for pages. Essence is, "the reason for this" is very simple:
to pay China a favor.

Now, the third part of the video has been edited. These are the words of the author:
unmadeinchina.org hosts the uncut version of this video, as they downloaded it before it was removed.
This is the version which has been edited so that it could be acceptable to YouTube policy
Following is the edited version on YouTube. Judge by yourself the cost of paying China a favor.
