YouTube for Turkey, at Least for Now



YouTube, and a growing number of other sites, have been blocked by the Turkish government in the past few months. Many feared growing censorship. A few days ago Turkish sites that are still up began a protest, and voluntarily banned themselves in solidarity. It worked! Today YouTube is finally back up.

Hi Kloe,

I am sorry to correct both The Guardian and you, however YouTube is still blocked in Turkey. I am in Turkey and I still can not get to YouTube directly, unless I use some internet tricks! ;-)
