KOMPAS.com - Protesters angry at China's strict lockdowns on Sunday, Nov. 27, called for President Xi Jinping to quit, in a sign of widening public frustration at the country's zero-Covid policy.

Demonstrators in the commercial capital, Shanghai, could be heard chanting, "Xi Jinping! Step down! CCP (Chinese Communist Party)! Step down!"

"I'm here because I love my country, but I don't love my government... I want to be able to go out freely, but I can't. Our Covid-19 policy is a game and is not based on science or reality," said one protester, Shaun Xiao.
