Proteste in Cina. Cosa dicono i mercati (Reuters)

As anger over China’s strict zero COVID-19 policy intensifies, residents in some major cities took to the streets at the weekend, clashing with police over restrictions that have taken a heavy toll on the economy and people’s freedoms.

In rare scenes of open dissent, some have called for Chinese President Xi Jinping to step down.

Chinese stocks slumped on Monday as recent monetary easing measures failed to offset investor worries about the protests in the world’s second-largest economy, while the yuan weakened versus the dollar.
