Hong Kong Shuts Down Dissident Websites After Mass Arrests – By John Hayward (Breitbart) / January 14 2021

Internet service provider Hong Kong Broadband Network (HKBN) confirmed Thursday that it blocked access to a pro-democracy news website called HKChronicles under orders from the city’s Beijing-controlled government.

The takedown was the first of its kind since China forced a draconian “national security law” on the island in a heavy-handed effort to crush the democracy movement.

“We have disabled the access to the website in compliance with the requirement issued under the National Security Law,” a spokesman for HKBN told the Hong Kong Free Press (HKFP) Thursday.

The spokesman said the takedown occurred Wednesday afternoon, but HKFP noted users began reporting problems with accessing HKChronicles a week ago.
