Google drops Dragonfly

Google’s Project Dragonfly was a search engine designed for the Chinese market that would comply with Beijing’s notoriously repressive censorship regime. By restricting or completely blocking searches for “human rights”, “democracy”, “Dalai Lama” and “Tibet”, Dragonfly would help China rewrite history and conceal its human rights abuses.
Update 20/06/2019: Following Google's annual shareholder meeting, the company confirmed there are "no plans to offer a search engine in China". We will keep watch of future developments, but for now this is a win for the campaign. After 10 months of global protests, online conferences, thousands of letters to Google and international press coverage, Google drops Project Dragonfly.
