SHANGHAI (AP) — Protesters pushed to the brink by China’s strict COVID measures in Shanghai called for the removal of the country’s all-powerful leader and clashed with police Sunday as crowds took to the streets in several cities in an astounding challenge to the government.
Police forcibly cleared the demonstrators in China’s financial capital who called for Xi Jinping’s resignation and the end of the Chinese Communist Party’s rule — but hours later people rallied again in the same spot, and social media reports indicated protests also spread to at least seven other cities, including the capital of Beijing, and dozens of university campuses.

Or they’re bored…
Who’s waking them up?
The CIA, MI6 and front groups for them like Falun Gong.
All the COVID restriction protests in the West demonized as extremists now our rulers think it’s OK for this to happen in China.
The people who oppressed us with COVID restrictions promote protest against them in China and we are supposed to drink the Kool Aid and cheer them on.
I’m taking a break it’s time for a nap.
I guess you’re not a fan of “China Uncensored” with Chris Chappell, then.
Xi is hugely popular. And he has been good for China. A bigger picture is far more accurate.
China is the next empire. We are on the end of ours. Lets hope it is not horrid.
There’s lots of support for dictatorships like Russia and China here on Freerepublic. Interesting.
They'll be getting woken up alright. Those protesters ahould have protested before all the cameras went up. Right now the DSB is connecting faces with addresses now for their late night visits.
Sure seems like a mighty long stretch from noting an article of possibility to support for communism doesn’t it?
Sounds like a product of public screwl edumacation in the last 20 years or more doesn’t it? Seriously flawed or absent logic.
I don’t worry about such stuff any objective analyst and I absorb a lot of info understands that Russia and China are on the “World Order” *hit List.
I don’t run the world or even think I do but I am entitled to analyze what’s going on and consider the deeper truth.
Kim Jong-un just rolled out his daughter around 12 years old they say for two public appearances in connection with this ICBM that reach anywhere in the USA.
My analysis is that Kim Jong-un may be using his daughter to ‘lure a predator’...
This is a lot of demoralization on FR over the demoralized Western World.
Flights going into China start at $3-4k from the US. Imagine what that is doing to the people that depend on tourism. You can find flights for less than $1k for most other Asian countries right now. A buddy of mine was planning a big trip to Asia over two weeks. Hes thinking of cancelling China and spending more time in the other countries.
Xi’s not gonna step down after getting 103% of the vote in the most recent election (2018?).
Lol… no way that’s happening. Xi is a Biden buddy. I would like to know what natural resources he has been shipping to globalists strong holds.
Just listened to report that an apartment that the people were locked in due to Covid restrictions burned and a dozen or so people were killed . This is what sparked the backlash.
Waking up? Maybe but doubtful. They are raised the total inverse of American values.
America = self, family, country.
China = country, family, self.
It’ll be interesting to see if Xi is destroyed by his covid policies or is strengthened by them. Hard to see something inbetween.
I read that too. To think, because of YOUR government, you can’t even get out of your home when it’s on fire.
The idea that they are unpopular and dictators is one sold by US media. Except for some truthful guys like Tucker Carlson.
The average Russian has far more freedom than the average American. Its dangerous to the uni party making millions laundering money in Ukraine for you to discover the truth.
US media, as usual, and in fact most western media works overtime to convince you of the lies behind every single war we have begun, and there are tons of them. We are a military empire and wars are profitable for us.
This used to be a great country but has been polluted and ruined by greed and excess lust for power.
We had Trump but we lost him.
Buckle up and pray we make it to the next First Turning.
This Fourth Turning is frightening.
Xi wants to stay as a perpetual dictator. He’s not going anywhere if the decision is his own. Xi would need to suffer one of those ‘most unfortunate Russian Style falls’ out of a waist level, strategically left open sky scraper window with no storm screen in it. That, or drink the ‘wong’ cup of tea.
