Chinese pensioners returned to the streets of Wuhan to protest changes to their medical benefits, highlighting the challenge confronting President Xi Jinping’s government following historic anti-lockdown demonstrations in November.
Photos and video taken in Wuhan on Wednesday showed a large group of people gathered under an overpass singing and chanting, while rows of police stood nearby. One video showed the crowd jostling with officers, and another shows police forcibly leading people onto buses.
