People in China are protesting across the country. What started as a fire in one building has led to a fire of protests.
The protests started when a fire broke out in a building where the citizens were trapped inside due to COVID policies in the country.
The fire in Urumqi, Xinjiang, the last screams of the residents who were burned to death, other residents could only stand by the window to watch, because everyone was locked at home.#TheGreatTranslationMovement pic.twitter.com/Fr1gyrpPsa

The building fire killed at least 10 people who could not make it out alive.
In case you wonder what caused the sudden anger in China, it was viral videos like this.

This started protests across China.
Rare nationwide protests have broken out in multiple cities in China. Many demonstrators expressed frustration over stringent Covid lockdowns, while others demanded freedom of speech and even the removal of China’s leader, Xi Jinping. https://t.co/dT6CQepqAD pic.twitter.com/fj7vSDcMQ5
