Shanghai police violently restrain protestors fighting cruel lockdown

PPE-clad police in Shanghai this week pinned down and arrested residents who objected to their homes being turned into Covid quarantine centres.

The Chinese city with 26million inhabitants has now spent more than three weeks in the world's toughest lockdown in an attempt to eradicate the Omicron variant of coronavirus under the Communist regime's strict Zero Covid policy.

Chilling video shared by social media users before being taken down shows scuffles in the streets today as cops forcibly restrained those who resisted.
