Communist China Attempts To Hide Yet Another Mass Protest Against Its Authoritarian Rule - The Federalist
Unrelated to the Hong Kong protests, citizens in Yangluo, China, are now protesting against horrific environmental conditions and government negligence.
While the rest of the world watches in awe at the sight of millions of Hong Kongers protesting against an extradition bill and demanding greater political freedom, a different protest erupted in Wuhan, in the heartland of mainland China.
Wuhan, the capital city of Hubei province, is the seventh-largest city in China, with 10 million residents. Sitting on the bank of Yangtze River, it has long served as an important harbor, a commercial and industrial center in central China. Wuhan is known for its hot weather, hot food, and hot-tempered (but talented) people.
