Youtube banned once again in Turkey

Turkey has once again banned access to the video portal Youtube. Access to the website Youtube was blocked in Turkey after a court oder on Thursday. Turkish users seem to receive a message explaining the ban of Youtube. The reason for the third ban are once again videos that make fun of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey.

The first two bans have been lifted pretty fast after the videos had been removed by Youtube, it is unclear as of now which videos have been the reason for the ban. It would be nice if you could make a screenshot of the notice that you receive when visiting Youtube if you are accessing the Internet from Turkey.

My suggestion would be to try accessing Youtube by IP (http://208.65.153.253/) instead. If that is not working try a working proxy, this should work as always.

      Thinker, they are not in the EU and I guess that the politicians and the people have different opinions if they should join.. But who is going to ask the people, eh..

      Thats rubbish guys, i want turkey to become EU member they are a great people and there secular society is an asset to all modern day muslim countries (infact there army is very anti-islam. can you blame em)? It is a thriving modern country, unfortunately, this rule is hurting there accession. I know they will get rid of this law inorder to reach EU criteria to join.
