Since the violent riots that shook the Capitol on January 6, the ultra-conservative platform Parler has been at the heart of the storm. Very popular with supporters of Donald Trump, and known for its almost total lack of moderation, the social network has been banned from Google and Apple’s online stores for inciting violence, and non-compliance with the terms of use of the platforms of download. A little later, Amazon completed the business, by depriving Talking of servers. Today, the return of the social network still seems complicated, despite the posting of a new message signed by CEO John Matze from the URL of the site.

Although suspended until further notice, it looks like Parler still has things to say. Just before it goes offline, ProPublica has indeed archived and published more than 500 videos published on the social network directly since the riots of January 6. Published, for the most part, by Americans who took part in the Capitol demonstrations, the latter offer a thorough and unfiltered timeline of events. A few days earlier, the Patr10tic site had also unveiled a similar project, by offering an interactive map of the riots. In an explanatory article published on its site, ProPublica explains that it received all of the videos in question (nearly 2,500 in total) from an anonymous source that downloaded part of the social network’s archives before it was taken offline. . The site then sorted it out, selecting the 500 of the most relevant clips to retrace the events of the day in images.
