China blocks access to searches about Tiananmen Square
Today is the anniversary of the Chinese government’s 1989 crackdown on protesters in Tiananmen Square. Hundreds of people were shot by government troops. But type “Tiananmen Square” into a Chinese search engine and you’ll get benign descriptions of the landmark or photos of tourists. The Chinese government has blocked results that acknowledge that something happened on June 4.
