China Closes Down Blogs: All CN BLogs Locked Down


Blogcn & BlogDriver Shut Down:

"Two more blog service provider were shut down after blogbus.com. Now, all of the top three blogs stoped their services now. This is not astonishing at all. To be safe, I don't want to make any comment on this. It is the hard time for everyone involved in the China blogging world."

So reports Wangjianshuo over at his blog in Shanghai.

It appears the PRC government is having some major mental attack over the internet at the moment.

Might be because of the National People's Congress but that is over today. Could be about the good Doctor whose letter to the Politburo about coming clean on Tiananmen Square is doing the rounds of the blogs and chatrooms. Who knows? (Some screen captures showing the closedowns follow)

But another fine example of free speech in China.
