China vows crackdown on 'hostile forces' as public tests Xi

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

China's ruling Communist Party says it will resolutely crack down on infiltration and sabotage activities by hostile forces. The statement was released late Tuesday after the largest street demonstrations in decades were staged by citizens fed up with strict anti virus restrictions, while it didn't directly address the protests, the statement serves as a reminder of the party's determination to enforce its rule. There has been a massive show of force by the internal security services to deter a recurrence of protests that broke out over the weekend in Beijing and other cities, security forces had been conducting random ID checks and searching mobile phones for evidence of participation in demonstrations.
