    The reporters in the video above are two Western guys who lived in China for ten years. They speak and understand Mandarin. They love the Chinese people and are amazed, given their familiarity with how law enforcement works over there, to see this bravery on the part of the people. They sort of expect the police to join in the protests.

    What seems to have set this off is a fire in a high-rise apartment complex where everyone was locked in because of "covid" and they burned to death. Word of the event spread on Chinese social media faster than the government censors could remove the posts. Who knows how this will end. Everyone is shouting for the CCP to "step down".

    Apparently they have also seen the World Cup Football and even though they tried to censor the crowd, the Chinese people are asking themselves why the rest of the world can gather like that when they are practically imprisoned.

    Protests In China

    Holy crap... is China blowing up? Let us hope so. The "we want freedom" bit... coming from Chinese? That's quite something.

    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

    Hundreds of demonstrators and police have clashed in Shanghai as protests over China’s severe COVID-19 restrictions continued into a third day and spread to several other cities.

    The latest demonstrations — unprecedented in mainland China since President Xi Jinping took power a decade ago — began after 10 people were killed in a fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far-western region of Xinjiang, that many of the protesters blame on protracted COVID-19 lockdowns.


    The deaths have become a lightning rod for frustrations over Beijing’s dogged commitment to zero-COVID and its combination of strict lockdowns, mass testing and tracking that continues to impede people’s lives three years after the first cases of the then-unknown virus were detected in the central city of Wuhan.
    “I’m here because I love my country, but I don’t love my government … I want to be able to go out freely, but I can’t. Our COVID-19 policy is a game and is not based on science or reality,” protester Shaun Xiao told the Reuters news agency in Shanghai, China’s largest city.
    Hundreds of people gathered on Sunday evening in the city, holding up blank sheets of paper as an expression of the censorship of protest, as police kept a heavy presence on Wulumuqi Road, named after Urumqi, and where a candlelight vigil on Saturday evolved into a protest.


    A Reuters witness saw police escorting people onto a bus which was later driven away through the crowd with a few dozen people on board. An accredited BBC reporter covering the protests was assaulted and detained for several hours, the United Kingdom’s public broadcaster said.
    “The BBC is extremely concerned about the treatment of our journalist Ed Lawrence, who was arrested and handcuffed while covering the protests in Shanghai,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
    “He was held for several hours before being released. During his arrest, he was beaten and kicked by the police.”

    ‘We want freedom’

    Protesters also took to the streets of Wuhan and Chengdu on Sunday, while students on numerous university campuses around China gathered to demonstrate over the weekend.
    In the early hours of Monday in Beijing, two groups of protesters totalling at least 1,000 people gathered along the Chinese capital’s Third Ring Road near the Liangma River, refusing to disperse.


    “We don’t want masks, we want freedom. We don’t want COVID tests, we want freedom,” one of the groups chanted earlier.
    Thursday’s fire in Urumqi was followed by crowds there taking to the city’s street on Friday evening, chanting “End the lockdown!” and pumping their fists in the air, according to unverified videos on social media.
    On Sunday, a large crowd gathered in the southwestern metropolis of Chengdu, according to videos on social media. There, they also held up blank sheets of paper and chanted: “We don’t want lifelong rulers. We don’t want emperors,” a reference to Xi, who has scrapped presidential term limits.


    In Wuhan, videos on social media showed hundreds of residents taking to the streets, smashing through metal barricades, overturning COVID testing tents and demanding an end to lockdowns.




    Other cities that have seen public dissent include Lanzhou in the northwest. Protesters said they were put under lockdown even though no one had tested positive.


    “People have been incredibly patient with lockdown measures but authorities must not abuse emergency policies,” Amnesty International’s Deputy Regional Director Hana Young said in a statement. “These unprecedented protests show that people are at the end of their tolerance for excessive Covid-19 restrictions.
    “The Chinese government must immediately review its Covid-19 policies to ensure that they are proportionate and time-bound. All quarantine measures that pose threats to personal safety and unnecessarily restrict freedom of movement must be suspended.”
    Pressure on party

    China has stuck with Xi’s zero-COVID policy even as much of the world has lifted most pandemic-related restrictions, but the emergence of more transmissible variants has blunted the effectiveness of the measures to stamp out the virus.
    While low by global standards, China’s case numbers have reached record highs for days, with more than 40,000 new cases reported by the authorities in their Monday update.
    Beijing has defended the policy as life-saving and necessary to prevent overwhelming the healthcare system, but has tweaked its approach after a prolonged lockdown in Shanghai earlier this year fuelled anger and frustration among the city’s 25 million residents.

    How do we know any of these stories are even real? The footage they are showing could be from a couple of years ago. It is very suspect that media outlets regardless of political ideology are all pushing the same anti China narrative. Who benefits from this?

    I know. The subject deserves sarcasm. That msn link above leads to coverage that deserves sarcasm.

    The outpouring has created new pressures on Mr. Xi only a month after he secured a third term as party head, sealing his status as China’s most dominant leader in decades. The broader source of ire is his “zero Covid” strategy, which seeks to eliminate infections with lockdowns, quarantines and mass testing. It has kept deaths from the coronavirus much lower than elsewhere, but also brought many Chinese cities to a near standstill, disrupted life and travel for hundreds of millions, and forced many small businesses to close.
    It cut corona deaths, did it? Not even "allegedly"? Whose word are you taking for that, dear Bill Gates Network, that you state it as undeniable fact? That's certainly not the way they treated the claim that welding doors shut kept people from evacuating a burning building.

    Many people suspected that a Covid lockdown had hampered rescue efforts or trapped victims inside their homes, and though officials denied that had happened, angry comments flooded social media and residents took to the streets in the city where the fire erupted.
    Just inexplicable that official denials didn't stop that foolishness. Yes, that's sarcasm too.

    Interestingly, the history and whitewashing of Tiananmen Square was an effective use of totalitarian censorship. I'd dare take a guess that most of the people actually protesting now are not old enough to remember, or to know what the eventual state reaction will be.

    The AirDrop feature is a vital tool for those in authoritarian countries, as the feature uses direct connections between phones rather than using any internet signal to communicate. On November 9, Apple released its new iOS. The update made it so that iPhones sold in mainland China can only receive messages from people for just 10 minutes before the function stops working.
