The elderly in the megacity of Wuhan in central China launched another large-scale protest in a week against the Chinese communist regime’s cuts to health benefits in its recent medical insurance reform. Meanwhile, in the northeastern megacity of Dalian, a similar protest broke out. Elderly protesters call for international attention and support.
The protest in Wuhan on Feb. 15 has been suppressed by the regime with elderly citizens being beaten, arrested, and dispersed.
