Protest on Chinese regime’s founding; China sends 38 military planes toward Taiwan​



A statement from China suggests you’re more likely to get struck by lightning than to experience adverse reactions from Chinese-made vaccines. But a number of reports say otherwise. In our special report we look into unreported stories of those who say Chinese vaccines aren’t so harmless after all. October 1st marks a major day for Asia. The Chinese Communist Party refers to it as ‘National Day’—the anniversary of the founding of the regime in Mainland China. Taiwan views it as a day of mourning. And in Hong Kong, some people are protesting in public this year.

Taiwan: we won't be forced to bow to China; Chinese bus falls into river, 13 dead | China in Focus​



Over a dozen people are dead in China. Severe flooding in the country caused river overflow and a major bus accident, leading a number of passengers to drown. There's more tension between Taiwan and China. Taiwan's president says the island will keep bolstering its defenses, and won't be forced to bow to the communist regime. Australia's former prime minister makes remarks on China, but Beijing isn’t pleased. It’s issuing its own statement targeting the nation. Over a year into a border standoff, China and India are still in talks to cool the situation down. But their latest conversation didn’t go as planned. NTD hears from a family that Chinese police are forcing to relocate, and how their struggle with the state turned what started as a housing crisis into a health crisis. Beijing has selected a new target for its next clampdown: the private capital. The goal appears to be completely removing it from the media industry.

Taiwan says it won’t back down from China threat; China’s Liaoning province: worsening power crunch​


An official response from Taiwan over Beijing’s aggressiveness says Taiwan stands on the front lines of what it described as an assault and it won’t back down, as China conducted military exercises in the Taiwan Strait. Beijing claims Taiwan is “not eligible” to join the United Nations because it claims the island as a part of mainland China. Widespread power shortages are still wreaking havoc across China. Almost two-thirds of the country is now struggling with electricity rationing. And the problem is hitting the global supply chain, too. Hundreds of workers are protesting from one company in South China—and they work for a main supplier to Apple computers. The world is still wondering, where exactly did the pandemic come from? A vital clue could be sitting inside tens of thousands of blood samples in Wuhan.
