However, the Chinese government has not acknowledged these protests and has not officially responded. News of these protests quickly spread across the country on Chinese social media despite extensive controls. This led to a fall in stock exchanges on Monday and oil prices fell. It also affects the world’s 2nd largest economy. To deal with the situation, Chinese authorities have begun removing photos and posts related to the protests online.
