"Every Free and/or Open Source Software based/located/maintained/served/related to the USA and its companions IS NOT a Free Software, since there’s no freedom of use, access and study, at-least for 80 Millions of individuals."

If you host any in the USA, please consider moving your code outside USA.

@praveen They are talking about projects and services run by some US corporations, not gnu.org. Useful for dramatic effect, if a little disingenuous.

Surely US law punishes Iranian people unfairly and unnecessarily. But like they've stated, that is not something free software projects or people can control directly.

They must also know what they can do: use free software (Tor, I2P,...) that is created for circumventing these barriers. Not ideal, but free software solutions do exist.

No, there is definitely things that Free Software projects can do, they can move their hosting outside US. Like @popolon mentioned about RISC-V foundation. No other country does world policing to the level of USA.
