China bans Tiananmen Square-related web search terms

Many Chinese born after the crackdown may not know that it ever happened

Chinese authorities have blocked internet access to search terms related to the 23rd anniversary of the 1989 crackdown against protesters at Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.

Terms such as “six four”, “23”, “candle” and “never forget”, typed in Chinese search engines, do not return any information about the event.

Discussions of the unrest of 4 June 1989 remain taboo in the country.

But some users managed to upload a few pictures on to Twitter-like Sina Weibo.

In 1989, troops shot dead hundreds of pro-democracy protesters gathered in central Beijing.

Opinion:

I guess that’s why there are only 3 hits against the Chinese flag on my counter… I was surprised there was 3.

I guess my blog is as good as banned.

Paranoia is a terrible affliction.
