Protests in Guangzhou as China’s government warns it will crack down

China’s ruling Communist Party has warned it will “resolutely crack down on infiltration and sabotage activities by hostile forces,” in an effort to prevent more protests against the government’s harsh Covid lockdowns.

However, unrest broke out again today in Guangzhou – as lockdown restrictions began to be eased in some parts of the southern city.

It comes as the death was announced of former President Jiang Zemin, who lead China in the years after the Tiananmen Square protests.
