All week, China has been rocked by protests against President Xi Jinping and the Communist Party’s extreme “zero-COVID” policies, which have forced many to stay at home for months, possibly leading to the deaths of 10 people trapped in an apartment building fire on Nov. 24.
I asked friends in China — using encrypted apps that the Chinese surveillance state has declared illegal — to tell me why they are protesting the lockdowns. Here are four responses, minus the personal details that might get them arrested.
1. “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!”
“I am a software engineer from Beijing. The “zero-COVID” policy that has gone on for three years has devastated the economy and the company I work for is on the verge of collapse. I and other employees are lucky to receive one-third of our normal salary. We are all struggling to pay our bills and just to get through daily life.

Xi: “Death it is!”
These brave Chinese deserve liberty far more than many of my neighbors in the blue part of Ohio.
Xi “That is acceptable”.

Using American slogans...smells like CIA.
Biden would say the same thing.
Say it louder so the American people can hear you. They seem to have forgotten.
Xi should know about government income tax revenue and know the causes of why it is down.
Xi should also know that the US has overcome Covid. If China has to pay dollars for Western vaccines, it is a good value. Dollars that aren’t used become nearly worthless over time.
China needs to move forward, and get past Covid and Covid fear.
China has moved forward previously by putting Western strengths to work in China.
It’s time to move China forward again Xi.
It is our “color revolution” without a doubt.
Too funny. Xi is way ahead of you. He has no interest, nor does Russia, of becoming a western lookalike to us.
There are well over 100,000 American expats living happily in China. Amazing.
Sad how liberty is dying in America and yet other people are still inspired by us.
It's bait. Fall for that line here and find yourself in solitary facing a J6 prosecution.
Meanwhile liberals in teh US are chanting, “Why do we need freedom? Give us free stuff!”
Gěi wǒ zìyóu huò gěi wǒ sǐwáng
As to the many Communists in China,
their total evil has been the delight of the devil all these years since Mao. Time for them to face some of their deserved punishment.
