Xi says no more ‘bullying’ as China marks party centenary

China’s President Xi Jinping told crowds gathered in Beijing that the era of China being “bullied” was over and that anyone who tried to separate the party and the Chinese people was doomed to failure as celebrations to mark 100 years of the Communist Party got under way in the Chinese capital.


President Xi Jinping is using the occasion to tighten his grip on the nation.
In 2018, he removed the two-term limit on his presidency, effectively allowing him to remain in power for life.

And during the centenary celebrations, the same narrative is being repeated again and again: China can only be great if it unites behind one party and one leader.
