News coming in of #protests in #China against #XiJingping . Anger over #zeroCOVID, harsh lockdowns, #Henan bank crisis & more culminating into tensions 3 days before #PartyCongress. Unlike #XiCoup news, protests intel appears legit. However, I'm unsure if "protest" is right word
Images coming out mostly show non-group action; rogue disgruntled citizens taking banners up appears more likely. This image, from what I confirmed used image search, is from Beijing's 3rd Ring Road in Haidian. People appear to be going about their day normally. Image
The slogan is reactionary & most images circulated are of this one banner in Haidian, Beijing only. However, it will be investigated thoroughly so close to Congress, & police patrol can be expected to be amped up even more (which anyway has been high in the city in prep for NPC)
