Beijing: Protests have started in different corners of China against the strict COVID restrictions imposed in the country and some even demanded the resignation of leader Xi Jinping and other Communist leaders.

In Shanghai, people were seen shouting slogans such as “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down”. A female demonstrator told the BBC police officers were asked how they felt about the protests, and the answer was “the same as you”. But, she said, “they wear their uniforms so they’re doing their job.”

It’s interesting that I can see the comment below written by @lisko when using the Jerboa client, but it’s not visible in Lemmur. Is it just me?

I wonder how the bright people over at lemmy.ml and lemmygrad are attempting to explain this. Probably what hfkldjbuq wrote (“funded and led by the CIA”).

Imperialist west/US is totally taking part in that, either funding or leading in some way. Go and make your demands; but demanding the CPC down, that is demanding a liberal, US-like model, will just destroy China (that is all US wants). So these protesters are acting in bad-faith or were brainwashed and don’t have enough information.

Perhaps China should first stop manipulating US presidential elections.

(Gee, making vaguely believable claims without evidence is easy!)

If the US historically had not take part in such activities worldwide I would not have made that claim. Because the US have done so much imperialist activities that lead to war, military dictatorships, … it is only logical to assume US involvement.

And it is not the first time US tries to fuck up China specifically

Also of course some people in China will be legitimately angry with the regime (ever saw that nail houses thing?), but not assuming US involvement is naive.
