I can not imagine that they really can block it. When I lived in Iran,
lots of pages were blocked. Most people I knew had *Psiphone* on the
computer and also on their USB-sticks. Nice little programme, faster
than Thor, and channels you around nearly all blocks. Still slows down
the net somewhat. I think only the Chinese are good enough to make even
this hard to handle. I use it also nowadays, when US-sites tell me that
I cannot view this or that from my location. Psiphone allows me to
choose the country from which I present myself. (But you cannot edit
wikipedia from a proxy programme like this)

Is Wikipedia still accessible via VPN from Turkey?
If accessible, then how about the effort spent in pushing a response to the
government, which might not let them change their mind, nor stop them from
blocking sometime later, instead, focus on encouraging the use of VPNs more?
VPNs are no longer the "terminal" things. Just a button click, and you're
browsing from the US or UK.
If the government bans *all* internet access, then fine. But ban only
Wikipedia? Unless VPNs don't work in Turkey too.
