Chinese citizens have risen up in protest against Xi Jinping’s zero covid policies and authoritarian lockdown measures. As the rest of the world moves further away from covid, China’s tightening of restrictions has pushed many citizens over the edge. Footage from the streets of China has been breaking through the firewall and flooding social media platforms, giving the West an unprecedented view on truly unprecedented protests against Xi Jinping and the Communist Party.
