In images reminiscent of Cersei Lannister’s Shame Parade ‘from the Game of Thrones TV series, a group of four residents in southern China were forced to humiliate themselves in public and marched last night (Monday) in front of a crowd on city streets accompanied by two columns of cops as collective punishment for allegedly violating Corona war authorities and the “zero patience” policy promoted by the Chinese communist regime.
While this move was banned in 2010, the local government reinstated the procedure for use in August and social networks were filled with photos and videos of participants in the Chinese “Shame March”. The four were also charged with smuggling immigrants from the nearby border with Vietnam, a border closed due to restrictions following the plague. The local newspaper The Joanshi Times justified the punishment and described the incident as a “real-life warning” to the public and to deter future crimes in the border area.
