Chinese protesters, mourning lives lost in a fire in the Xinjiang capital Urumqi and rallying against the strict COVID-19 lockdowns that contributed to that tragedy, gathered on Shanghai's Urumqi Road to make their point.  Police in response removed the street sign, but authorities still face symbolic blank sheets of paper held aloft by demonstrators across the country to voice opposition to anti-virus lockdowns, censorship and restrictions on free speech.
