China has now blocked Wikipedia in all languages. While the Chinese language version has been blocked since 2015, the other languages were viewable until April of this year. China has restricted free usage of a number of sites over the years. Wikipedia was banned because it moved to https, so it had become practically impossible for China to monitor which individual pages were being viewed. Hence a blanket(full) ban was applied. However, the ban restricts access for non-Chinese people as well.
