    Big character protests of this nature not seen since 1989. Makes you wonder who did it and who is backing them. Especially given the timing.
    Why does he need backing? Seems he was all alone judging from his social media posts before his actions.

    I'm assuming this is more venting from frustrated citizens than real political dissent.. a lot of attn on his continuation naturally. Whether Xi continues or new guy isn't that big an issue for me, it would be different but same same to me regardless of who's in charge all these years. I wonder what the locals think..
