Minitrue: This Time of Highest Sensitivity

Minitrue: This Time of Highest Sensitivity

The following censorship instructions, issued to the media by government authorities, have been leaked and distributed online. The name of the issuing body has been omitted to protect the source.

All websites are asked to strengthen on-duty work during this time of highest sensitivity. Closely observe reporting discipline. Ensure that a responsible editor is always present.


We stress once again the responsibility of websites to check content. Strictly delete information about redressing and commemorating June 4th (including so-called sideways expressions). Anyone found to be violating discipline during this inspection will be severely punished.


Take care to find and delete the Tencent Entertainment article “Amnesiacs, With What Can We Save You?”

注意查删《腾讯娱乐:失忆症患者 拿什么拯救你》。

About 23 hours ago, Tencent Entertainment posted an article titled “6/4 Thematic Projection: Amnesiacs, With What Can We Save You!” (6·4主题放映:失忆症患者,拿什么拯救你!). The article reviews the use of amnesia as a dramatic device in seven films. It has been deleted from Tencent, but can still be read on [Chinese].

First published June 3 on CDT Chinese.

CDT collects directives from a variety of sources and checks them against official Chinese media reports to confirm their implementation.

Since directives are sometimes communicated orally to journalists and editors, who then leak them online, the wording published here may not be exact. The date given may indicate when the directive was leaked, rather than when it was issued. CDT does its utmost to verify dates and wording, but also takes precautions to protect the source.
