Mass protests broke out across Shanghai demanding an end to COVID lockdowns following outrage over an apartment building fire in Urumqi where ten people were killed after being locked inside.

The citizens who died in the fire were at the time under strict zero-COVID lockdown measures.

As The Daily Fetched reported earlier this week, Another 39,791 new cases of the COVID virus were reported, the most significant one-day increase on record, with a record 4,307 in Beijing alone.

The Epoch Times spoke with one of the protesters, who used the pseudonym Zhengyi Dong, who took to the streets on Sunday.

Dong said she saw some protesters holding blank pieces of paper, some got into scuffles with police, some were beaten, and some were thrown into police buses.

“I was very moved. The people have been suppressed for too long. It was not fear. I felt that my blood was boiling,” she said.

As The Epoch Times reported:

Dong said there were at least 100 police at the location, and they had blocked off the road and taken down the road sign.

Videos online show protesters chanting slogans such as “Down with the Chinese Communist Party” and “Remove Xi Jinping from office.”

Before Dong left the scene at around 8 pm, she saw at least three protesters arrested. Other protesters were shouting, “release them, release them,” but to no avail, she said.

There were other reports of protesters being arrested, with some being beaten, with one witness stating that he saw one female protestor being beaten by a dozen police, reported RFI.

According to the BBC, one of its reporters was arrested when interviewing protesters.

Dong said she used to trust the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and thought China would improve undeet their rule.

But she said the protest scene shocked her, saying, “the people’s police were actually taking down the road signs and beating the people!”

“This cannot solve the problem but exacerbate the issue. We will go to protest again,” Dong said.

Meanwhile, online footage showed hundreds of demonstrators confronting riot police in Urumqi, where many of the four million residents have been prevented from leaving their homes for as long as 100 days, the Daily Mail reported.

In another video, protesters can be heard chanting “take down the CCP.”
