Rebellious villagers reject talks with Chinese government

Raw Stroy
The Chinese village of Wukan, which has been in open revolt since the death of its representative Xue Jinbo in police custody ten days ago, has rejected overtures from the government to discuss ending the standoff.

“Leaders at a higher level of local government summoned me for talks,” village representative Lin Zuluan stated. “But I told them that until they release Xue’s body, and the four other villagers held in custody, and to give back our land, there can be no talks.”

The farmers and fishermen of Wukan, whose rebellion began as a protest against what they consider to be the theft of their land, are now planning to march on the nearby administrative center of Lufeng to press their demands.

    Theft of land sounds pretty familiar to me. To this day my people are having minerals sold out to the highest bidder from underneath us.
