Recently, there have been many protests occurring in China, primarily due to blockade restrictions, ethnic assimilation, and a fire incident.
Protests against Beijing’s strict COVID-control measures erupted in Shanghai and Beijing this month, with demonstrators gathering for a candlelight vigil for victims allegedly killed in a fire caused by Xinjiang lockdowns.

They were shouting, “Communist Party, step down!” “Xi Jinping, step down!” and “Freedom.”
Shanghai police blocked the road and prepared to arrest people. They also threatened to accuse protesters of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble.” Protesters chanted for the police to “serve the people!”
Not only adults but also students were involved in the protests.
Specifically, students from Nanjing Media Academy, Shanghai Jiaotong University, and many other universities also mourned the victims in Urumqi. According to updates from netizens on November 27, the number of universities on the list has increased to 103.
