Another one a night of riots yesterday (29/11) in China and specifically in the city of Guangzhou, with its 19 million inhabitants.
Anger in China over its zero-cases-of-coronavirus policy has overflowed. Citizens clashed with police officers who wore full-body white protective suits and held shields over their heads to avoid being hit by objects thrown at them, as footage circulating on social media shows. Another video shows them being arrested in handcuffs.
Western analysts see the protests as the biggest wave of civil disobedience since President Xi Jinping took power a decade ago.
