The hashtag # I want freedom of speech # on Weibo is now gone. It had drawn 1.8 million views as of 5 a.m.

Even the phrase itself has been censored.

Not allowed to speak.
Not allowed to die.
Now allowed to be angry.
Not allowed to desire.

Are we allowed to at least remember? pic.twitter.com/bSQtpBKSOU
