System Fail #19: The Woke Mind Virus

Sub.Media returns with a new episode of System Fail, which looks at international news from an anarchist perspective.

As the news cycle focuses on an epic battle between those infected with the Woke Mind Virus and so-called defenders of free speech, another virus, virtually forgotten by western governments, has sparked tensions in China.

Mired by extreme lock-down measures coupled with food and medicine shortages, people in China have become increasingly frustrated with the country’s Zero-COVID policy.

In Zhengzhou workers reached their breaking point and occupied the massive Foxconn factory dubbed ‘iPhone city’. Days later in a predominantly-Uighur neighborhood in Urumqi, Xinjiang province, a fire broke out in a high-rise building, killing at least 10 people.

And in other news, in Elon Musk’s quest to rid Twitter of wokeness, he has laid off over half the staff, reinstated a number of banned right-wing accounts, and is purging anarchists and antifascists.
