Manchuria Today

Chen Qiu Shi was the first runner up winner in China’s public speaking competition. He was “disappeared” during Covid lockdown for posting videos of disturbing scenes at the hospitals. He is unable to say what happened to him then. His Chinese social media accounts have all been suspended. He is only able to post on YouTube. You will never get all this information from authorised Chinese tour guides.

Below is his vlog on a territory in NE China that was once Manchuria. He gives a very succinct account of the history and politics that led to the present situation. Casual tourists will only see the glitz and the glamour. How many of the mesmerised tourists realise that there are people who have paid up for their properties but never got the keys?
