29,000 People Protested in China Between June 2022 and April 2023

At least 29,000 people have protested throughout China between June 2022 and April 2023.

According to the Freedom House China Dissent Monitor, 2,230 “dissent events” have led to thousands of people protesting in a variety of ways.

“78 percent were demonstrations and marches, 10 percent were sign protests, 4 percent involved obstruction and occupation, 3 percent were collective petitioning and 3 percent were labor strikes,” a report from the organization said.

The organization said protests are a “daily occurrence” in China.

The protests regard the country’s former “zero-Covid” policy, religious persecution, censorship, and unpaid wages.

Reporting from Breitbart:

The Monitor documented the highest number of acts of dissent in the heart of the nation — Hebei, Henan, Shandong, and Shaanxi provinces. It notably could not verify a single protest in the occupied regions of Tibet and East Turkistan, likely more indicative of how the Uyghur genocide in the latter and the ethnic cleansing projects against Tibetans have made it difficult, if not impossible, for residents to maintain contact with the outside world. It noted that it nonetheless documented dozens of protest acts among religious communities.
