"Zero Covid" : the failure of China – Le dossier de L’Express

Never, since the Tiananmen Square movement in 1989, have so many Chinese challenged the communist regime so directly, some even daring to call for the resignation of President Xi Jinping. In dozens of cities and universities, angry citizens and students gathered this weekend in late November to shout their rejection of politics "zero covid" applied blindly and brutally by the Chinese authorities since the start of the Covid-19 epidemic, almost three years ago. A cry of revolt that turned into a political demand against an authoritarian power deaf to the suffering of a population whose daily life has become hell, tells us our correspondent in Beijing. A month after being triumphantly reappointed for a third term as head of the country, Xi Jinping faces his most serious political challenge since taking power in late 2012.
