The headline is slightly deceiving. All "private internet access" isn't blocked, just a single VPN called Private Internet Access VPN.

It's one of the top two VPNs in China/HK. If they're coming for PIA, it means all the VPNs will be blocked soon or already are. In other words, full GFW lockdown for HK, removing one more of the last remaining freedoms that HK still had over the mainland.

I've emailed the mods.

Thanks! Updated from “Hong Kong Blocks Private Internet Access”.
