The Czech Republic just delivered a huge smackdown to Chinese censorship… by putting up placards geared towards Chinese tourists, warning about the evils of the Chinese Communist Party.
Most recently, the city of Prague has put up boards describing the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre.
The massacre erupted when hundreds of pro-democracy protesters took to the central square of Beijing to demand basic freedoms from the ruling Communist Party.
Instead of listening to protesters, the Chinese government sent in the military–who killed hundreds of protesters to restore order.
The incident attracted tremendous backlash across the world–but inside China, the incident has been heavily censored and many Chinese people are unaware of what actually transpired.
When Chinese tourists visit Prague, however, they’ll be confronted with the truth.
Prague is one of the most heavily visited cities in the world–and is a favorite of Chinese tourists.
The new signs come amid a growing anti-Chinese sentiment both in the Czech Republic and abroad over the coronavirus pandemic.
Most notably, Czechs are fuming over their purchase of 300,000 rapid-coronavirus tests from China, at a cost of nearly $2 million. 80 percent of those tests were found to be defective–showing both false-positive and false-negative results.
The lack of working tests has harmed Czech efforts to control coronavirus.
Overall, the Czech Republic has had 7,504 confirmed cases of coronavirus, along with 227 deaths.
