China’s “White Paper” Revolution

Peter Stubley:

China has tried to stamp out public protests after students and angry residents rebelled against President Xi’s zero-Covid policy in the largest demonstration of unrest since the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.

Student demonstrators flooded the grounds of two universities in Beijing while crowds in Shanghai chanted “down with the Chinese Communist Party” and openly demanded Xi’s removal.

The authorities have now imposed tight security measures to suppress any further shows of dissent.
