Instagram blocked in China in response to Hong Kong democracy protests

      The democracy-busting Chinese government in Beijing appears to have taken another step in stifling the sharing of information.

      Numerous reports, including this one from Reuters, state that Facebook's photo-sharing service known as Instagram is no longer available in China.

      It comes in the wake of a police crackdown on democracy protests in Hong Kong that sent more than two dozen people to hospital.

      The hashtag #OccupyCentral has been used to disseminate many photos of police repression over Twitter.

      Occupy Wall Street is watching this unfold and taking notes for the next round of Occupy across North America, and probably Europe and the UK -- Kaboom and then some.

      How much more of this until people realize that the PRC is a worse threat to freedom than Russia ever was?

      No more selfies of young women puckering their lips! This is grim news indeed.
