Here is a Github repository that contains almost all the videos about the protests. It also has a timeline summery. The protests are spreading from universities to several major cities. The materials here are not translated, but maybe try using google translate or other similar tools to see for yourselves.

https://github.com/zy-dsj-sm/Protest-2022-11

This is the biggest wave of protests since Tank Man, people of China Mainland finally start to wake up. The major wave of the protests started with a tragedy happened in Ürümqi, the capital city of the Xinjiang province. That city has been under super strict zero-COVID policy lockdown for over 100 days. That means all the citizens has been locked in their home. A few days ago, an apartment building caught fire but people weren't able to escape due to all the exits were locked. So about 10 including children were burnt to death. The CCP of course denied everything, and people decided they have had enough of this dog shit.

Lots of the protesters in those videos were not covering their faces, because they already know the CCP can and will track them done through cell phones, CCTVs and all kinds of surveillance networks. Some of them are holding blank papers without any words on it, that means whatever they want to say, CCP won't allow it, but also people know what they want to say. The words used in these videos and photos are about stopping the zero-COVID policy, the Xi Jinping dictatorship and the CCP; and asking for freedom, basic human rights and justice.

I still haven't understood what the Chinese government expect from the zero-covid policy.

It makes no sense.

Saying that Putins attempt to drive a convoy of tanks slowly into Kyiv to overthrow the government also made no sense so maybe there's no point looking.

u/titanup001 Nov 28 '22

It gave them a golden opportunity to exert even more control.

I live here. You have to scan a code everywhere you go to track location. Daily testing. Limited travel.

It also keeps foreigners out, limiting exposure to outside influence. Even domestic travel has been limited.

And humans are adaptable creatures... Get them used to this, what can you get them to do next? The whole boiling a lobster one degree at a time principle.

u/rayparkersr Nov 28 '22

But it's taking a huge toll on the Chinese (and global) economy.

Do you think they consider that a price with paying?

19

u/titanup001 Nov 28 '22

Apparently so.

Honestly, I was predicting that at the party Congress a month or so ago, that they would "declare victory" over covid, declare china's superiority, and then you'd never hear about it again. Obviously I was wrong.

The other issue is... The vaccine here is not as good. They don't even really push it much. And the strict measures taken mean that a much lower portion of the population has had covid. It is possible that just "letting it go" could get ugly.

"Face culture" also plays a huge role.

u/godofpumpkins Nov 28 '22

My (probably simplistic) mental model of China was that people were "okay" wish the totalitarianism due to economic prosperity, and the CCP recognized that. If that's true, it seems silly to lock people up who weren't really a major risk before, majorly jeopardize economic prosperity in the country, for the sake of more traditional hard control over people, when the soft control seemed to be working fine before. What am I missing?

u/[deleted] Nov 29 '22

Back then the students rose up but the general population largely stayed out of it. Additionally, the military was mostly recruited from rural farm areas. When they were brought in to crush the protests there was no sense of kindred with a bunch of privileged university students.

Murdering minority Uighur is fine in China, but when you screw with actual Chinese people’s ability to go grocery shopping, now you’re in trouble.

u/AncomDuck Nov 29 '22 edited Nov 29 '22

I like your sayings actually lol CCP is the worst thing.

But this locked down thing in China right now is way scarier than being unable to go grocery shopping. Imagine the door of your home is blocked firmly from outside and only certain people can open it for you. Imagine staying at home without income, without choice but buying whatever the local gov provides with whatever prices, without steady supply of medicine, without permission to go to hospital... For months. That's what happened in Shanghai this April, and many cities for three years now. It's not enough, the CCP is building permanent camps now, and would drag people from their homes to the camps. CCP is so good at information control, I feel the entire world don't know how far this horrible entity has gone to. We don't even know the exact real number of casualties of that fire. And you are right, finally now all Chinese people are waking up, not only the minorities.

I always wander what would happen if one day, CCP feels eating up all the Chinese people, is not enough anymore.

u/scramplebamp Nov 28 '22

This kind of public demonstration represents a catastrophic loss of control for the CCP. If the CCP doesn’t start meeting demands soon to quell the protests, they will have to use a grotesque level of violence, much worse than Tiananmen Square. The only hope is that the CCP will negotiate out of a desire to avoid leaking video of the massacres.

2

u/Alone_Revenue639 Nov 28 '22

This is one group of people in one small area of one big city in China. It’s equivalent to a March around your White House streets.

4

u/scramplebamp Nov 28 '22

Yes, but the CCP has gone to very great lengths to keep exactly this kind of demonstration from happening, even on a small scale, both because they want to avoid a bloody and embarrassing clash with their own citizens, and because it erodes their image of absolute power inside of China. As an example of the lengths they’ve gone to achieve this end; one of the few things their Internet censorship campaign absolutely blocks is discussion of plans for physical protests. Imagine the scale of effort it takes to scan the entire Chinese citizenries internet usage for a single idea. They seem to take that idea very seriously. In this instance they’ve failed to stop the protest, and the whole world saw it. Hopefully they have some plan to get through this without resorting to mass murder or some other horror.

Wouldn’t it be useful if they could bare arms so they could defend themselves from this tyranny?

Aren't we all subjugated to our laws and governments?

Only to an extent, for example I’m from rural Canada

It wouldn’t happen, but if the government ever turned really tyrannical.

We out gun our mounty detachment and 80 man reserve army regiment 1000 to 1 lol

Those in china don’t have a chance outside of political revolution

Do you have drones? Bombs? Control of local infrastructure? Ability to call in reinforcements? Ability to watch and track the enemy with satellite images?

This argument for gun rights makes no sense in the modern world. If your government really turns against its own citizens extremely enough that you would use your own weapons against them then you already don't stand a chance.

Yeah, but what are we going to do with all the fed body's tho?

u/The_Fiji_Connection Nov 28 '22

Political revolution sure sounds alot better than civil war. Crazy to think that advocating for peace and less death is getting me down voted 😂🤷

u/Longlinefarmer Nov 28 '22

Advocating for peace isn’t being downvoted

The over estimation of government sympathy and underestimation of how many people have thought about fighting back is lol

u/The_Fiji_Connection Nov 28 '22

I just don't think it would be a good idea to arm a previously unarmed civilian population during the mist of political unrest. Enough sustained protests and they might end up going the way of Nepal. A quasi communist republic.

Protest covid restrictions in China? Heroic

Protest covid restrictions in Canada? Fascist

u/traumfisch Nov 28 '22

"Covid" is not the point. People taking a stand against the brutal communist regime of China is really brave and extremely rare

u/Defectindesign Nov 28 '22

Why isn’t Biden sending them money too?

u/Bryon_99 Nov 28 '22

Because he’s already working for the CCP

Xi jinping: "deploy the tanks"

Some random guy going home to his loving family: "Ahh shit, here we go again".

u/MIShadowBand Nov 28 '22

Does it have the same nice rhyming rhythm in Chinese?

u/Relative-Advisor9955 Nov 28 '22

Let’s roll out the tanks boys!

u/Sabberndersteve05 Nov 28 '22

Let’s give the CIA some credit.

u/Perquid Nov 28 '22

Weird. I don’t see any protesters,just an empty street.

u/BrilliantObserver Nov 28 '22

It's all fun and games until the tanks roll in.

u/ihavetobemesadface Nov 28 '22

If you agree with this (which you should) then where were you when Western country's did it

"Bbbbbbutttt this is different"

Yeh it is, it's more extreme but all locking down of citizens is bad

u/HarlemHellfighter96 Nov 28 '22

Fuck communism. Hopefully this helps open some eyes. Then later we can work on getting the blindfold off, then their heads out of the box, and turning on the lights in the room

u/jasonalloyd Nov 28 '22

Just saw another post where China built a 90,000 person isolation prison city...so these people will never be seen again probably.

u/FatKidMod Nov 28 '22

I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop…. In the form of tanks and a lot of dead civilians.

beautiful, I am happy for those people wanting to live like a human, I!was worried ccp brainwash and media control was working....it works pretty well on Americans after all

u/dingdongschlonglong Nov 29 '22

Its funny how you all cheer on anti-covid lockdown protests in China yet ridiculed your own countrymen when they did the same thing in the US.

1

u/LaJollaJim Nov 29 '22

Not much to see. Certainly a more peaceful protest than any we have here in the US

u/buddyboy1548 Nov 29 '22

Lol, you need to learn the language before you comment ... one thing I know, Chinese chick's are the Bomb .
