Wikipedia Responds to Block by Turkey

Earlier today (29 April 2017) Turkish authorities blocked access to Wikipedia inside the country. [1]

We believe that all people deserve access to independent high quality information in the language of their choosing and in a format they can use. We have for some time been working to develop offline access to our content and it is at times such as this that the importance of this work becomes obvious.

While we are happy to respond to concerns about our content by involved parties, those with a conflict of interest do not determine content. The final arbitrator in such decisions is generally community consensus. We, the Wikimedia movement, oppose censorship and the suppression of freedom of information. We also strongly oppose terrorism.
