Political rebellions

 

Bankruptcies in Italy

Most of the rebellions are linked to demands against the expropriation of lands or for the payment of compensation for the confiscated land. Some, howver, have a markedly political character.

Midway through December, 2004, 50,000 workers of rural origin held demonstrations and confrontations with the police in the province of Guangdong after police beat a 15-year-old adolescent peasant to death, accusing him of having stolen a bicycle.

In the same province, peasants from the village of Taishi mobilized for months demanding the dismissal of the mayor. The mayor, member of the Communist party, is the head of a band of delincuents. The growing number of take-overs of villages and municipalities at the hands of these bands has led some Chinese intellectuals to speak in terms of a “gansterization” of the countryside. In spite of the threats and the beatings received by many of them, the peasants were able to wrest the convening of a recall referendum.
