Neofascism: Turkey Blocks Access to Wikipedia

The government of Turkey has blocked access to Wikipedia after two Wikipedia entries described links between the Erdogan government Turkey and Islamist militant groups .

The ministry accused Wikipedia of running a “smear campaign” against the Turkey. saying some articles purported that Ankara was coordinating with militant groups.  A Turkish court on Friday rejected an appeal by the Wikimedia Foundation, which operates Wikipedia, against the blocking, saying that while freedom of speech was a fundamental right, it can be limited in cases where there is a “necessity for regulation”.
