Angry protests broke out in Tibetan against China’s stringent COVID measures
Lhasa city under lockdown began in early August as COVID numbers there and throughout China continued to rise. However, after more than 2 months, people still have to live under strict control because the COVID pandemic still cannot be eradicated.
According to RFA, on Oct.26, there was a protest that broke out in at least two locations in Lhasa due to angry people reaching their limit of endurance.
RFA’s composite video shows people gathering in large numbers against anti-epidemic staff in familiar white suits. Police were also at the scene to control the crowd.
The sources told RFA that the main reason for people’s protests was that they were prevented from going out to buy food and necessities. Up to now, there have been no major conflicts between the police and the public. However, if the pandemic control is not relaxed, some Tibetans have threatened to set themselves on fire.
