CCP Places Death Penalty For Crossing Border Into China With COVID-19.
In its newest COVID-19 control warning, China’s ruling communist party warned local authorities that anybody infected with COVID-19 who crossed the border into China would face the death sentence. On June 2, nine governmental agencies in Fangchenggang, Guangxi Province, China, published a combined official epidemic control notification on their Chinese social media profiles. The Dongxing Customs Anti-Smuggling Branch, the Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection, and the Public Security Bureau are among them. Anyone infected with COVID-19 or those who assist infected persons in crossing the border without authorization will be prosecuted with threatening public safety, which is punishable by death, penalties, and property confiscation, according to Article 6 of the notification.

Xinjiang Police Files Leaked Provides ‘Shocking’ Evidence of Mass Persecution.
According to Andrew Bremberg, the foundation’s president and a former US ambassador to the United Nations, a report released by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation presenting leaked documents from the files of the Xinjiang police offers “absolutely shocking” evidence of the chronic abuse and brutality inflicted on the Uyghur population in China’s far west region. The “Xinjiang Police Files,” as they’re known, are a “massive data dump that is unparalleled of its sort,” according to Bremberg, who claims the files contain the personal information of hundreds of thousands of detainees. Analysts believe that over 1 million Uyghurs and other ethnic Muslim minorities are being held in a network of concentration camps across the area by the Chinese state. The files contain “significant damning facts from within China’s detention camp system,” according to a May 23 news statement from the…Read More
Chinese Schools Are Shutting Down Amid Teacher Shortage. ‘Zero COVID’ Policy Is Weighing Chinese Society Down.
Michael is about to breach his contract and quit an international school in Shanghai after three years of teaching there, having been worn down by strict anti-coronavirus efforts. Following two years of practically sealed borders, onerous health inspections, and quarantine regulations, the 35-year-old’s final straw came in early April when China’s commercial center was shut down. “The economic benefits of working here no longer compensate for the lack of flexibility to come and go,” the science instructor added, declining to disclose his full name for privacy concerns. As the COVID-19 pandemic and new education policies transform the working climate in China, Michael is one of hundreds of international instructors fleeing. The scenario has prompted international schools to raise alarm bells, as China has opened up to foreign investment and talent over the last two decades. Some people’s lives are now…Read More
Hong Kong COVID-19 Contact Tracing App ‘LeaveHomeSafe’ Had Hidden Facial Recognition Technology Similar To Mainland China’s “Social Credit System”.
The Hong Kong government has acknowledged that their contact tracing smartphone app LeaveHomeSafe includes a facial recognition feature. The authorities, on the other hand, maintained that they were unaware of the function and had never utilized it. Since the implementation of LeaveHomeSafe, Hong Kong citizens have expressed worry. Many individuals are concerned that it will be used by the government to impose greater social controls or infringe on people’s privacy. To alleviate public worries, Wong Ho-wa, a Hong Kong data scientist and pro-democracy activist, believes the government should make the app’s source code available to the public. The contact tracing app pushed by Hong Kong’s government resembled mainland China’s “social credit system,” which uses artificial intelligence and facial recognition to conduct mass surveillance and assign points based on citizens’ behavior, according to Antony Leung, a senior media professional in Hong…Read More
China’s ‘Zero COVID’ Policy Under The Microscope By Ex-President Of Chinese Dept. Of Infectious Diseases.
On April 23, Miao Xiaohui, a well-known infectious disease expert in Shanghai, reiterated his call for the CCP to end the Zero-COVID policy, which he describes as “completely inconsistent with the basic law of infectious disease pandemics,” as soon as possible in order to reduce secondary disasters and deaths caused by excessive pandemic prevention.

He added that all neighborhoods in Shanghai have been shut for 23 to 27 days, which is “totally contradictory with the basic rules and intervention…Read More
Chinese Citizens Protest For Supplies And Rations Amid Zero COVID Lockdowns.
People’s frustrations are boiling over a month after Shanghai was placed under lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19. More than 20 million people in this massive city are without food, supplies, or freedom.
