Banners against Chinese President Xi Jinping could be seen across the Chinese capital of Beijing, before the crucial meeting of the Communist Party to be held on Sunday. In the Haidian district of Beijing, a banner put up on a bridge was burnt to show the people’s anger as well. The police rushed to the spot, removed the banner and made the people disperse. Now, police personnel have been deployed in large numbers there. People are not being allowed to leave their homes.
In the Communist Party’s meeting to be held on Sunday, it is being expected that Xi Jinping will be elected as the General Secretary, with which, he will seal his third term as the President of China. On the other hand, the banners all across the capital of the country read that the people of China wanted ‘freedom’, and even if there were no corona tests taking place, they wanted food to eat. Another banner appealed to the people to organize strikes at their workplaces. While one said that it was time to remove dictator and traitor Xi Jinping from office.
Such dramatic protests and public criticism of the Communist Government in China is unusual, but now, China’s ‘zero COVID policy’ has stirred anger among the people of the country.
