Brutal videos: Police at the Foxconn iPhone Plant in Zhengzhou appear to have completely lost control of the situation

Protests have erupted at the world’s biggest iPhone factory in the Chinese city of Zhengzhou, according to footage circulated widely online.

Videos show hundreds of workers marching, with some confronted by people in hazmat suits and riot police.

Those livestreaming the protests said workers were beaten by police. Videos also showed clashes.

Manufacturer Foxconn said it would work with staff and local government to prevent further violence.

In its statement, the firm said some workers had doubts about pay but that the firm would fulfil pay based on contracts.

It also described as “patently untrue” rumours that new recruits were being asked to share dormitories with workers who were Covid-positive.

Dormitories were disinfected and checked by local officials before new people moved in, Foxconn said.

Last month, rising Covid cases saw the site locked down, prompting some workers to break out and go home. The company then recruited new workers with the promise of generous bonuses.

Footage shared on a livestreaming site showed workers shouting: “Defend our rights! Defend our rights!”

Other workers were seen smashing surveillance cameras and windows with sticks.

“They changed the contract so that we could not get the subsidy as they had promised. They quarantine us but don’t provide food,” said one Foxconn worker during his live stream.

“If they do not address our needs, we will keep fighting.”

He also claimed to have seen a man “severely injured” after a beating from police.

One employee who recently started working at the Zhengzhou plant also told the BBC workers were protesting because Foxconn had “changed the contract they promised”.

He said some newly recruited workers feared getting Covid from staff who had been there during the earlier outbreak.

“Those workers who are protesting are wanting to get a subsidy and return home,” the staff member said.

There was a heavy police deployment to the plant on Wednesday morning, he said. Other livestreamed videos also showed crowds of armed police at the site.

Another newly recruited employee told the BBC he visited the protest scene on Wednesday where he saw “one man with blood over his head lying on the ground”.

“I didn’t know the exact reason why people are protesting but they are mixing us new workers with old workers who were [Covid] positive,” he told the BBC.

Foxconn, a Taiwanese firm, is Apple’s main subcontractor and its Zhengzhou plant assembles more iPhones than anywhere else in the world.

In late October many workers fled the plant amid rising Covid cases and allegations of poor treatment of staff.

Their escape was captured on social media as they rode lorries back to their hometowns elsewhere in the central Chinese province.

The firm has since enacted so-called closed loop operations at the plant – keeping it isolated from the wider city of Zhengzhou because of a Covid outbreak there.

  3. I don’t perceive that they are protesting for any “noble” reason. Simply, they are 100% brainwashed with the covid narrative (as Jim mentioned), and are thus scared of “catching covid,” which they know will lead to further curtailment of their rights including possibly forced starvation at some point in the future…which I am sure they have already seen or heard about in other towns and villages.

    I agree with Jim. We are watching insanity (of a sort) on a massive scale. For those who look, there has been insanity of other sorts in our own countries for decades already. It’s all building to a spiritual schism on a worldwide scale…the likes of which (as the Bible also says) has never been seen before and never will be seen again.

  4. All I could think about watching these videos is just one word: Insanity. Look at these people, protesting whatever it is they don’t like yet they are all obediently wearing their masks which they are ordered to wear by the tyrants yet provide zero protection from ANYTHING. I can see in my minds eye, those who are creating such insanity sitting around some off-grid, luxurious, secret meeting room drinking 1928 Krug and 1907 Heidsieck champagne and eating the finest Petrossian Beluga caviar atop Blini pancakes while laughing madly at the chaos they are creating. They could only be more pleased if and when these two factions began killing each other. “Live it up boys!” because there is coming a time in the very near future in which they will be heard saying “Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb” Revelation 6:16

  5. Covid, my foot. The slaves are finally rebelling against their Chinese slavemasters. 200,000 slaves in a walled city working 14+ hours a day with barely enough food to live. And they can’t leave the walled city without permission… Time for a revolt. That’s all. Hope you all enjoy your slave labor made Apple iphones.
