China Dissent Monitor Issue 2: October-December 2022 DISSENT EVENTS: 1,080 WHAT IS THE CHINA DISSENT MONITOR? The China Dissent Monitor (CDM) collects and shares information about the frequency and diversity of dissent in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). [...] Of course, the most frequent slogan among the 73 protests in the late-November movement was to “end the lockdown,” reflecting the grievance that unified most events in this movement. [...] CDM data shows a notable dip in the frequency of dissent events during the period around the congress, as illustrated in the chart. [...] The central government made the list of top targets of dissent due to the wave of anti-lockdown protests in November, with students and urban residents aiming their discontent with zero-COVID policies or other political grievances at central authorities. [...] For example, after dozens of parents in Chengdu demonstrated in front of the private Elephant Art Institute on November 1 and 2 to protest the school’s owner absconding with tuition fees, the police found the owner and coordinated negotiations about restitution with the protesters.
