If your network design forces all HTTP(S) traffic to go through your
squid proxy on tjener, you can allow/block access based on heaps of
things (IP range, MAC adresses, target URLs, ...).
You could also add something like squidguard or dansguardian for better

However, this needs constant watch+work, as people tend to find new ways
/ websites every day to circumvent such filters.

Another approach is to modify your DNS to serve wrong results for
certain URLs, but that would only stop non-tech-sawy people from
reaching their goals.
