In China Wikipedia is blocked in all languages

157

The Wikimedia has confirmed that Wikipedia has been blocked in China of all language editions since April.

Internet censorship researchers discovered that Wikipedia had added thousands of other websites which actually can’t be accessed in China.

China had already previously banned the Chinese Language version of this site. Now the block has been expanded because they have blocked all the languages.

In the meanwhile, Wikimedia informed that it had not received “no notice” about this move.

The foundation said in a statement “In late April, the Wikimedia Foundation determined that Wikipedia was no longer accessible in China. After closely analysing our internal traffic reports, we can confirm that Wikipedia is currently blocked across all language versions.”

Moreover, in 2017 the site was also blocked in Turkey and then this year the site has been blocked periodically in Venezuela.
