Sensitive Words: We Want to Eat!

As of April 11, the following search terms are blocked on Weibo (not including the “search for user” function):

Wansheng, Qijiang, we want to eat
万盛,綦江,我们要吃饭

On the afternoon of April 10, several thousand students and denizens of Chongqing’s Wansheng district marched to protest the merger of Wansheng and Qijiang districts. They held banners reading “Give us back our Wansheng” and “We want to eat.” Riot police threw tear bombs to suppress the demonstration.

Note: All Chinese-language words are tested using simplified characters. The same terms in traditional characters occasionally return different results.

CDT Chinese runs a project that crowd-sources filtered keywords on Sina Weibo search. CDT independently tests the keywords before posting them, but some searches later become accessible again. We welcome readers to contribute to this project so that we can include the most up-to-date information.
