Screams and whistles reverberate through the bars of buildings in this district of Shanghai. The residents went to the windows of their apartments to denounce the very strict confinement imposed on them by the authorities. The footage from this sequence was broadcast on Twitter on Saturday, April 9. The scene is unprecedented in China, where this type of protest is extremely rare. Censorship on Chinese social media generally prevents such expressions.

After several days of incarceration, local residents let their anger out, tired of the very strict health restrictions. The author of the video says: “In the beginning, some people shouted, then suddenly everyone started shouting. Because all these people do not know how long this confinement will last and why the measure was taken. If it takes a long time, there will be problems.”

Tension mounts, especially due to the lack of food. Demonstrations have been reported in some neighborhoods and residents have been annoyed. †I don’t care even if the Communist Party arrests me. Besides, where is communism? I no longer have the means to live. My shop is closedloses a man visibly exhausted.

Concerned about the challenge of their “Zero Covid” policy, local authorities announced Monday morning the division of the city into three sectors – restricted zone, control zone and prevention zone – suggesting some residents of Shanghai could regain their freedom of movement. It remains to be seen when the measure will apply on the ground.
