China land grabs new study  wukan

Villagers dismantle a tree barricade on a bridge leading into the village of Wukan, after residents reached an agreement with government officials over illegal land grabs and the death in custody of a local leader in Wukan, Guangdong Province on December 20, 2011. The village of around 13,000 inhabitants accused local officials of stealing communal land without compensating them with anger boiling over with the death in police custody of a village leader tasked with negotiating with authorities over the row.
