Chinese dictator Xi Jinping (69) has shaken the regime with his strict corona policy: People across the country see not only the end of eternal lockdowns: “Down with the Communist Party, down with Xi Jinping!”
Now reigning is comforting – at least. The first corona testing sites were dismantled in Beijing on Friday, as you don’t need a negative result to go to a supermarket in the capital.
In the neighboring city of Tianjin and Shenzhen, the obligation to check on buses and trains has also been relaxed. Further easing should follow next week.
Dictator Xi hinted at the corona transition behind closed doors in Beijing on Thursday. In China, Omicron has significantly reversed the dangerous delta variant, he said in an interview with EU Council President Charles Michel, Reuters reported, citing eyewitnesses.
The regime fights the protests with the most modern methods
Xi seems to want to let some steam out of the cauldron by loosening up. Because it has been bubbling for a week China Like it hasn’t done in over ten years. Until a few days ago, it was hard to imagine that in a surveillance state with an undignified police apparatus, people would demand the resignation of a dictator and at the same time show their faces.
In fact, Xi Jinping is using the most modern methods against police violence and protests. Police use video facial recognition to make a list of participants and arrest some of them during demos.
Tech giant Apple, at the behest of the regime, has restricted the AirDrop function on its iPhones to make it more difficult to distribute videos and images from the protests. Mobile phone maker Huawei has reportedly even removed videos from its customers’ devices if they protest.
︎ AND: According to the “Wall Street Journal,” the Internet Commission on Tuesday issued new guidelines to companies — including ByteDance and Tencent Holdings. They are the Chinese owners of short video apps TikTok and Douyin.
The agency has reportedly been asked to focus more on content related to the protests — particularly demonstrations at universities and a high-rise fire in western Xinjiang that killed ten people.
