Chinese netizens rush to post censored video over lockdown issues | app

Chinese netizens rallied to outwit government censors over a video documenting weeks of lockdown in Shanghai, flooding social media feeds as frustration continued to mount over strict COVID zero rules.

The six-minute video titled ‘The Sound of April’ was released on Friday and was quickly censored as it went viral. Chinese Wechat users then downloaded the movie from different accounts and in various forms, including reverse and mirrored versions until late at night, as the newly uploaded clips were also deleted.
