Has the Censoring of Nigeria's Internet Only Just Begun?
"Monitoring by the Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI) in the runup to election day showed that while the sites related to the Biafra movement remained blocked, most tested websites and popular social media platforms WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger displayed no signs of network interference. Circumvention tools such as the TOR browser and the VPN Hotshield also tested normally." - Ayodeji Rotinwa, Top10 VPN

China Bans The Intercept and Other News Sites in “Censorship Black Friday”
"The Chinese government appears to have launched a major new internet crackdown, blocking the country’s citizens from accessing The Intercept’s website and those of at least seven other Western news organizations.

On Friday, people in China began reporting that they could not access the websites of The Intercept, The Guardian, the Washington Post, HuffPost, NBC News, the Christian Science Monitor, the Toronto Star, and Breitbart News.

It is unclear exactly when the censorship came into effect or the reasons for it. But Tuesday marked the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, and Chinese authorities have reportedly increased levels of online censorship to coincide with the event.

Charlie Smith, co-founder of GreatFire.org, an organization that monitors Chinese government internet censorship, said that the apparent crackdown on Western news sites represented a significant new development and described it as a “censorship Black Friday.”" - Ryan Gallagher, The Intercept

CPJ calls on Liberian authorities to ensure access to internet and social media services
"Starting this morning, social media services including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and WhatsApp were disrupted throughout Liberia, according to data from the internet advocacy group NetBlocks and local journalists who spoke with the Committee to Protect Journalists. NetBlocks also reported disruptions to the Associated Press website and Google's Gmail and News services on Liberia's leading wireless internet provider, Lonestar.

Users have had only intermittent access to the social networks amid large protests today in Monrovia, the capital, against alleged corruption in the administration of President George Weah, according to news reports.

It is not clear who is responsible for ordering the blocks. CPJ's calls and WhatsApp messages today to Liberian Minister of Information Lenn Eugene Nagbe went unanswered.

"President George Weah and his government must ensure that social media and internet are restored and that journalists have the ability to work," CPJ Program Director Carlos Martinez de la Serna said from New York. "The Liberian public's access to information should be prioritized, and this means maintaining an uncensored internet."" - Committee to Protect Journalists
