Online Tiananmen museum is blocked in Hong Kong as Internet curbs widen


There is growing censorship in Hong Kong, even though the city’s mini-constitution is supposed to protect free expression. In January, Hong Kong Broadband Network confirmed to local media that it blocked HKChronicles, an anti-government website that revealed officials’ personal data, at the request of the police. In June, police asked Wix, an Israeli web-hosting provider, to take down the 2021 Hong Kong Charter project, a site run by pro-democracy activists. Wix said it took down the site “by mistake” and restored access shortly after.
