China unblocks Wikipedia

Posted on Monday, November 20 2006 @ 08:19:56 CET by

After being blocked for more than a year by the Chinese government, Wikipedia is now back accessible in China.
The main page of the Chinese-language version of Wikipedia (zh.wikipedia.org) could be displayed and searches for apolitical terms turned up results, but searches for subjects taboo to China's Communist leadership, such as "June 4", remained blocked.

June 4, 1989, was the date that China's military crushed a student-led movement for political change centred on Beijing's Tiananmen Square, killing hundreds and possibly thousands. The incident remains among the most sensitive subjects for the country's state-controlled media.
More info at Reuters.

Update: I put this news story in the queue last week and it looks like it's already outdated. The ban was only lifted for a very short term, on Friday the Wikipedia site wasn't accessible anymore in China.
