China bans Wikipedia

Wikipedia – the world’s biggest online encyclopedia – has been banned in Mainland China.

According to the censorship research group, the Open Observatory of Network Interference, the encyclopedia has been barred since April.

The Wikimedia Foundation stated they had not received a notice about the platform being shut off in China.

During the 2013 interview, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales stated that the platform would never comply with the Chinese government’s requests to censor the information.

It is also reported that people in China cannot get access to Google, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, etc.
