Advocacy Group to Protest BlizzCon Convention

An advocacy group is calling for sponsors to drop out of a video game developer’s annual convention in Anaheim.

Fight for the Future, a non-profit advocating for digital rights, is protesting Blizzard Entertainment’s BlizzCon event after the company banned an esports player for voicing support of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

The BlizzCon convention, where Blizzard unveils upcoming game titles, is set for Nov. 1 and 2 in Anaheim. Protesters are expected to be at the event.
