Glimpses of anti-Chinese government protests during vigils for victims of a apartment building fire in Urumqi, China, amid China's zero-COVID' policy in Hong Kong, New York, Los Angeles, Toronto.

Xi Jinping's government reported that at least 10 people died in the fire, sparking public anger and protests against Covid lockdowns in several cities in China on Monday.

The vigils in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto also remembered those who have suffered and 'died of hunger during China Covid Zero'.
