In this episode of the Perspective Prog. Based on ‘Protests in China’. Public protest is exceedingly rare in China. However over the last few weeks the country saw protests sparked by anger over the increasingly costly zero-Covid policy enforced by President Xi Jinping. As numbers swelled at demonstrations in multiple major cities, so too have the range of grievances voiced – with some even calling for greater democracy and freedom. Chinese authorities moved quickly to suppress demonstrations that erupted across the country over the weekend, deploying police forces at key protest sites and tightening online censorship. Meanwhile China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson on Monday deflected questions about the protests. So what is happening in China and how significant are these protests?
