It has indirectly spread to Hangzhou. I have been attending events sponsored by Hangzhou Green Drinks (HZGD), an organization in over 800 cities worldwide.
Email from HZGD:
"A quite disturbing issue for HZGD.
Finally, and this is the disturbing and strange event we were referring to above, some words about Hangzhou Expat's on-going disgraceful, anti-community activities.
Unfortunately, after trying to appease their erratic,unprofessional and inappropriate attempts to control what we write in our HZGD emails and put on our online documents for the past few months, as well as them trying to control at which venues we do or don't hold our events, Hangzhou Expat has started to delete our HZGD event notice posts as soon as they are posted all without any rational justification.
As you would likely know, Hangzhou Green Drinks is an independent, non-profit community group run by volunteers in their own free time. Our speakers are also community-minded volunteers and they receive no payments, nor do we pay fees to the venues that host our events. We are, we think, the epitomy of a community group.
The biased, mercenary and baseless actions of Hangzhou Expat's administrators outlined above show that they have no understanding of community-mindedness whatsoever.
Hence forth we will be ceasing to use Hangzhou Expat as a site for disseminating information about our events, and as a site for discussing green issues and connecting with like-minded people. Please see our other online sites for event details and updates, and to discuss green issues and make social/business connections.
We can only suggest you avoid Hangzhou Expat and their anti-community policies and try to use other Hangzhou Forum sites, information directories, classifieds and event listings.

I will stand behind and NOT SUPPORT any anti-community policy or movement moving across China.
