Facing the Chinese Communist Party’s draconian pandemic prevention measures, signs of rejection began appearing in Beijing. Among them, the slogan “Better die than have no freedom,” appeared in the streets for the first time since the “June 4, 1989” Tiananmen Square incident.

This is reminiscent of the 1989 pro-democracy movement. During that time, students protested with the slogan “Better die than have no freedom” that could be seen all over Tiananmen Square.
