During the night of November 22 to 23, anger broke out among employees of the largest factory of iphones in the world, in Zhengzhou in China, confined for more than a month in their workplace. Amateur videos published on social networks make it possible to trace this manifestation of rare intensity for the country.

Dozens of images of angry Chinese workers began to emerge on social networks on the night of November 22 to 23, 2022. Filmed first at night, then by day, they testify to the anger of the employees locked up in their Factory due to “zero covid” policy in force in China.

Is China Really Using Ex-UK Military Pilots For Tactics Insights? Sure Seems Like it

  Is China Really Using Ex-UK Military Pilots For Tactics Insights? Sure Seems Like it The U.K. Ministry of Defense admits that dozens of its veteran military pilots are now assisting the Chinese with air combat training.A story published by The Times of London states that “at least 30” pilots who previously served with the U.K. Armed Forces have been recruited by China “to help Beijing develop its tactics and technological expertise.” The pilots involved are said to be mainly former fast-jet aircrew but also include helicopter pilots. All apparently began working for China from the end of 2019 onward and are said to be earning around £240,000 (roughly $270,000) a year.

This site, subcontractor of the Taiwanese company Foxconn, is the largest manufacturer of iphones in the world and employs more than 200,000 people. But since the appearance of several cases of COVID-19 in mid-October, the employees, who live in the dormitories on the site, have been confined to their workplace.

Images showing employees fleeing the site on foot, climbing flocks, suitcases in hand, had caused indignation on Chinese social networks.

For a few days, anger has been growing on the Zhengzhou site. This Sunday, November 20, images showing employees demonstrating on the site had started to circulate on social networks. But the images published on the morning of November 23 in China testify to a new degree of intensity.

Several videos originally published on Weibo and Douyin (Chinese equivalents of Twitter and Tiktok) testify to violent clashes between demonstrators and order of the order.

Images filmed from different angles show, for example, a host of demonstrators advancing towards a group of people dressed in white sanitary combination armed with riot shields and batons.

Several videos show the demonstrators picking up the projectiles on the ground to launch them towards the police, in particular pieces of destroyed white barrier which were located by the road.

Several injured are visible on videos. A demonstrator in orange and black jacket appears in particular on several videos, the blood in blood. Injuries inflicted by individuals in white combination - and therefore a priori by the police, as confirmed by another video where we can see him be beaten with baton.

The scene takes place on the site and near the Zhengzhou site, visible in "Street View" on Baidu Map.

For weeks, analysts and other reports have been speculating that the basic models of the iPhone 14 are shopkeepers compared to the new Pro versions.

on Weibo and Douyin, on the morning of November 23 (French time) We no longer found the images of these events - research via hashtags referring to events, in particular “Zhengzhou riots” give no results.

By typing the keywords “Zhengzhou” or “Foxconn” in Chinese, several publications, however, refer to events. Several of them wonder: "What happened to Zhengzhou?" Or asking other users to send them videos.

The trigger for manifestations is not yet clear. On the videos, we can hear some employees mentioning pay delays or even talking about the lack of food and their living condition. Same speech in a man who presents himself as an employee of Foxconn.

The site would be in need of staff after massive leaks of employees - several thousand according to Reuters, an element which would have participated in the deterioration of living conditions.

In an PRO PRESSION published this Wednesday, November 23, FOXCONN confirmed that there had been violence on the site, but denies having employed new people who contracted the coronavirus, as some demonstrators also denounced, as well as to have lagged behind in bonuses, which had been promised to convince them to remain despite the confinement. “The company will continue to contact employees and the government to prevent similar incidents from happening again,” concluded Foxconn.

The latest videos published on social networks seem to testify to a return to calm, even publications relayed in the early evening in China, November 23, show demonstrators that are still mobilized.

Slavery's ghost haunts cotton gin factory's transformation .
PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — There’s no painless way to explain the history of a massive brick structure being renovated into apartments in this central Alabama city — a factory that played a key role in the expansion of slavery before the Civil War. Dating back to the 1830s, the labor of enslaved Black people helped make it the world’s largest manufacturer of cotton gins, an innovation that boosted demand for many more enslaved people to pick cotton that could be quickly processed in much higher quantities than ever before, historians say.
