Around 200 protesters chanted “Free China!” while lighting candles. “on Sunday, two blocks from the White House, in solidarity with protests in China that demanded an end to strict anti-virus measures and political change.

President Xi Jinping and the ruling Communist Party are being demanded to relinquish power by demonstrators at Freedom Plaza holding posters that read, “No Dictatorship, No Censorship.”

They had blank sheets of paper to show their resistance to the party’s ubiquitous censorship.

Others shouted, “Free China! ”

After at least ten individuals lost their lives in a fire in the northwest Chinese city of Urumqi on November 25, demonstrations broke out.

Authorities denied claims that anti-virus protection may have prevented firefighters or people from fleeing a building.

However, the catastrophe was a focal point for the public’s annoyance with curbs that kept millions of people inside their houses.

A Chinese student who would only offer her last name, Liu, out of fear of reprisals, said, “I did not care much about these public concerns before as it did not happen to me.”

Liu declared, “The COVID policy is extremely inappropriate.” “Now that I live in a nation with freedom of speech, I will work to safeguard my rights whenever possible.”

The protests included participation from Uighurs, Tibetans, and others from ethnic minorities that the Communist Party has targeted for monitoring and control.

A man who wished to remain anonymous remarked, “The brave young people inspired me in China.

“How can we remain seated after they rose?

He said, ” “At least I’ll let them know they weren’t alone,” I said.
