After Chinese court affirms Chinese lawyer and activist Xu Zhiyong [1]’s conviction of four-year sentence in prison for assembling a crowd to disrupt order in public places, New Citizens Movement website [2], of which Xu was one of the founders, disappeared from Baidu search results. 

This is not the first time that information relating to Xu Zhiyong has disappeared [3] from Baidu and other China-based web sites.
