On May 7, the Twitter account @remonwangxt posted a video showing a man being surrounded and suppressed by several policemen wearing protective clothing. The man’s entire body was tied with duct tape like an Egyptian mummy; the whole body was left with only the head that could move freely. In another video, the stairs of an apartment building are stuffed with coils of barbed wire, leaving no room for people to enter, leaving residents worried about what to do in the event of a fire.
Sound of Hope quoted people’s words in the video comments: “North Korea hasn’t even come to this extent”; “This is like intentional murder,” some even said bluntly, “such action is no different from the fascists from the past.”
Under such circumstances, some people who could not stand it began to protest. On the evening of May 7, there was a clash between the police and the people in Jinsheng Community, Zhuanqiao Town, Minhang District, Shanghai.
According to a video filmed by locals, residents of the Jinsheng residence in Shanghai demanded food supplies from the authorities. Local young people took the lead in scuffles with police.
Then, the police took a young man downstairs and beat him. His family members ran down to the rescue, so they clashed with the police; some locals saw this and ran over to help, so the police were forced to leave.
After a while, dozens of police officers came to the scene to continue their assault. Angry locals continued to protest.
