WATCH: Chinese anti-lockdown protesters refuse to back down

Protests are continuing across China in defiance of the dictates of the authoritarian government as people gather to oppose the outcomes of a lockdown being enforced by the police and Army seeking to impose the zero Covid policy of the authorities.

Commentators say that anger has been stoked by the death of at least 10, and perhaps many more, people in a fire in a tower block in the city of Urumqi where residents were locked in because of the zero-covid policy.

Sky News reported that Amnesty International described the continuing protests as a move of “remarkable bravery”, and quoted demonstrators as saying Beijing’s COVID policy was a “game”, while others demanded “basic human rights”.
