Wikipedia
Chinese Wikipedia (zh.wikipedia.org, secure.wikimedia.org), other
language versions of Wikipedia (aside from certain articles) were
unblocked for a period of time in 2007. On 31 August 2007, all languages
of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia sites were once again blocked in
Mainland China.[46] They could reportedly be accessed through secure
connections.[47] On July 31, 2008, the BBC reported that the Chinese
Wikipedia had been unblocked that day in China; it had still been blocked
the previous day. This came within the context of foreign journalists
arriving in Beijing to report on the upcoming 2008 Summer Olympics.[48]
It is currently more accessible with repeated clicks on taboo matter
causing the user to be locked out. However, this page is
blocked.[citation needed]

Since late July 2009, all images on Wikimedia pages have been removed by
certain ISPs in China.[47]
