Occupy China: Wukan

Horrible story for the town of Wukan. 10,000 residents under siege in rural China because the authorities have given away the people’s farmland to developers and the villagers are protesting. Their leader, Xue Jinbo, died in police custody. Just a reminder that the 1% in China are ruthless autocrats who care nothing for the lot in life of the 99% except for using them as beasts of burden in the further accumulation of riches and power.

Wait, what?
