A weekend protest at an elite Beijing university has forced administrators to abandon plans to further tighten COVID-19 restrictions on its students. 

Peking University's graduate students organized Sunday's peaceful protest after the school made the decision to put up a metal wall to keep them on campus, while also allowing faculty to enter and exit freely. 

Protesters broke through the sheet-metal barrier, sharing phone videos and photos over social media before being removed by government censors.
