Chinese police “beat” citizens who gathered to protest against having their bank accounts frozen due to COVID-19 policies on Sunday, according to protesters.Protests centered on three banks serving primarily rural communities that have frozen millions of dollars in accounts since April. Roughly 1,000 protesters gathered to call for the release of their funds outside the Zhengzhou branch of the Chinese Central Bank, but they say they were met with violence.”I feel so aggrieved I can’t even explain it to you,” one protester, going only by the name Zhang, told Reuters.”They did not say they would beat us if we refused to leave. They just used the loudspeaker to say that we were breaking the law by petitioning. That’s ridiculous. It’s the banks that are breaking the law,” the demonstrator added.CHINA POSES ‘BIGGEST LONG-TERM THREAT TO ECONOMIC AND NATIONAL SECURITY,’ FBI DIRECTOR WRAY WARNS
