An extraordinary city in southern China is testing this great country’s ability to deal with democratization.

Wukan, a fishing village of approx 20,000 inhabitants have been robbed of their land. Industrial development need more land and local government confiscate land without proper compensation.

Protest have been going on for days, local politicians have fled town and police has sieged the city blocking food supplies.

This situation is delicate for Chinese officials dealing with both national and international reactions.  We should all follow their actions.
