China is blocking Wikipedia in every language

It’s coming ahead of the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen crackdown.

China has blocked Wikipedia to varying degrees over the years, but now that censorship appears to be farther-reaching. A recent Open Observatory of Network Interference report has shown that China started blocking Wikipedia in all languages sometime in April, not just the Chinese-language version as has been the case since 2015. The Wikimedia Foundation told AFP that it hadn’t received any notices regarding the block.
