Xi Jinping has lost the track of the developments domestically, as the usual policy of public suppression and information localisation have been pressured with the increasing resentment among the Chinese people for worsening conditions. Now the Lithuanian Ambassador to China has revealed that Chinese students (at least in Beijing) are no longer being allowed to attend embassy events and only select ones, with prior clearances and that too only with accompanying supervisors.
Sorry, who has to lift the curtain? Chinese students (at least in Beijing) are no longer allowed to attend embassy events, only select ones, with prior clearances, only with accompanying supervisors… https://t.co/iHvXF6IFv4

China is so scared that it is even baring its citizens to have any sort of conversation with the people of other countries by curbing their movement in and around embassies. The Chinese people are already angry at multiple bad steps which have cascaded into a situation where they are somehow silent on the government’s anti-people activities. And understanding this, Xi Jinping in his paranoia is trying to shut the last point of interaction between its people and the world by barring students from entering foreign embassies.
Chinese public reaction concerning Japan and warning signs for Xi Jinping
China under Xi Jinping has been going all guns blazing against any and every country with which it has even the minutest of reservations, and since the pandemic, it has succeeded in increasing its enemies. Even countries that earlier believed that working alongside China would be a walk in the park, are now finding it intimidating, as CCP continues its aggressive foreign policy.
One country that has openly stood its ground to challenge these policies and create a countervailing force to it is Japan. However, with tensions rising, the Chinese citizens are getting concerned. Going ahead, bad relations with Japan are making the Chinese citizens start to disown CCP as well as its policies with discontent soaring at an all-time high.

Chinese citizens have earlier expressed concerns that the Communist Party, which marked the 100th anniversary of its founding, has ruined the image of the nation and hindered personal relationships with the Japanese people. “China is not equal to the Communist Party,” said Zhang Yong, a 45-year-old architect. “I hope more Japanese will visit China and know more about what we are now, after travel restrictions in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic ease.”
Chinese students hunted and espionage abroad too
The fact that Australia is no longer willing to entertain even an ounce of interference from China is an open book, and it is willing to go to any lengths to make sure that the influence of Chinese Communist Party members and sympathisers are dealt with. According to an investigation, Chinese pro-democracy students in Australia face intimidation and fear of repercussions if they speak out on controversial matters vis a vis China and its Chinese Communist Party. Human Rights Watch discovered that such pupils in Australia felt watched, forcing them to self-censor in class.

While the Chinese embassy in Canberra strongly rejected the report on Wednesday, calling it “biased” and said that the Human Rights Watch had “decayed into a political tool for the West” and the group was “always biased on China”, the Australian government said it found the report “deeply concerning”. Following a worsening in relations between the two countries, there has been increased worry over China’s influence on local campuses in recent years and the report has only confirmed that.
While China is trying to increase its influence and spread an agenda-driven narrative to fulfil its objectives. China has very clear objectives, while it wants to spread misinformation and brainwash the international community, it also wants to keep its population politically indoctrinated and hence the increasing isolation.
