WordPress.com Banned

BoloBhi Poster

64k websites stand blocked in #Pakistan. YouTube for over 2 years. #WordPress today. Will you sit by and let the government empower #PTA to block? National security, religion, sensitivities used as excuses to censor Internet. Now Article 19 being used by the government. Everyone who is affected by the #Wordpress ban, whether directly or indirectly needs to write to PTA & MOITT. They need to hear you on this. See our original stay order against #IMCEW & #PTA http://bolobhi.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Order-1.-15-12-14.pdf & modified due to MOITT’s insistence that ‘terrorist’ websites need to be blocked: http://bolobhi.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Order-3.-20-01-15.pdf … #Pakistan

WordPress.com is now banned in Pakistan.
Yay, more censorship in the name of religion and dubious “national interests”. That’s exactly what this country needs.
