China’s White Paper Protests

After a building in Xinjiang was set on fire during the lockdown, DaBai refused to let fire fighters get close to the building. As a result, the building burned down killing everyone inside. By choosing to enforce quarantine measures over safety, the officials let those people die. This sparked the White Paper Riots across China.

Since the tragic event occurred in Wulumuqi, a memorial for those lost was held on Wulumuqi Road in Shanghai. The government’s response was to move the sign so that people couldn’t mourn. What followed was a peaceful protest over the next few days, where people held up a white piece of paper in protest.

The white paper had become a symbol of protest in China: anything they write on it will be censored. But we don’t need to write anything, you already know what it needs to say.

The protests happened across many cities, with people demanding the release of protestors, and that the CCP steps down.

The police response was to control the protestors movements, and arrest key members. They weren’t opposed to using violence on the peaceful protestors.

In some cities, factory workers still under “closed-loop production” (live and work in the factories) rioted and broke out of their temporary prisons.

The protests were eventually crushed, but the CCP could see the people had become too defiant. Within a week the compulsory testing stations started shutting down, and lock downs were ended completely.

As always, many videos were spread during these protests. I’ve created a playlist to gather some of these videos on my channel, which you can view here.
