In this, the 23rd episode of A View from Afar for 2022 political scientist Dr Paul Buchanan and host Selwyn Manning analyse the significance of public protests that have challenged authoritarian rule in both the People’s Republic of China and in the Republic of Iran.
Paul takes us through the causes of the resistance, and how, in each nation, the reasons differ, but the impact is the same.
In 2022, authoritarian leadership is being challenged by the rise of street protest and resistance to centralised control.
