Zoom censors Chinese dissidents after Tiananmen Square video conference

Zoom just collaborated with the Chinese state to suppress information about the slaughter of freedom fighters in Beijing's Tiananmen Square 31 years ago.

According to Reuters,

Humanitarian China said the event they held on May 31 was hosted by a paid account and was joined by over 250 people worldwide via video-conferencing platform Zoom, while more than 4,000 streamed it on social media, many of whom were from China. The account was shut on June 7, they said in a statement.

“When a meeting is held across different countries, the participants within those countries are required to comply with their respective local laws,” Zoom said in an e-mailed statement.

The Internet should be liberating the Chinese people from censorship.

But these Internet collaborators with the Chinese state are helping to ensure that Chinese people never know what freedom is, or know who died in the pursuit of it.
