China Adjust Massacre Estimate

As I yesterday there were reports of a massacre near Shanwei in Guangdong province. The Chinese authorites have up their declared number of people killed by 50% to 3. Howver, the locals are still claiming as many as 20 have been taken.

This is the second rural demostration in rural Guangdong this year the previous one occured in Taishi village. Most of these demostrations are against corruption, pollution and land seizures that are affecting rural life in China. Whole villages have already been uprooted in a number of schemes carried out by the Chinese government.
