Subject: [African Wikimedians] Turkish Government Blocked Access to
To: "Mailing list for African Wikimedians" <
Today, a court sitting in Ankara banned access to Wikipedia. The reason for
the ban is not clear but a statement credited to Turkey's communications
ministry said " Wikipedia was attempting to run a smear campaign against
Turkey ". Well, its seems the ban was imposed following a failed attempt by
the government to control Wikipedia's contents.
You may want to contribute to a proposed community's response to the ban. I
have provided a link to the draft below.
