Activists used to point out how searches about topics like Tiananmen Square protests on Google China resulted in only results from Chinese state-owned media. Very recently, Google China began redirecting to www.google.com. You can still connect to Google Japan, Google France etc. however. Why is China suddenly the only country we can't see Google's search engine for?"
