Zoom Video Communications Inc. said it reactivated the account of a U.S.-based group of Chinese pro-democracy activists, after earlier closing the account “to comply with local laws.”

The San Jose, California-based company suspended the group’s user credentials after it hosted a recent gathering to commemorate the 1989 protests and massacre at Tiananmen Square, a seminal event for advocates of democracy in China. Zoom’s decision to close the account was reported earlier by Axios.
