    Riots in Guangdong Escalate, Overwhelm Shaxi

    Chaos is mounting in the ongoing labor riot that began on Monday in the town of Shaxi in Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province.

    On Tuesday, thousands of migrant workers swarmed into Shaxi from Guangzhou, Foshan, Jiangmen and other neighboring cities, overwhelming the local police force. Rioters are wrecking every motor vehicle they see, stopping moving cars in order to batter them. Police cars, privately owned cars and bus stops have all been destroyed. A number of shops have been broken into as well. The Zhongshan Fuhua Station was set on fire and burned for close to 24 hours. The Shaxi town hall has also been ruined.

    At first the rioters allowed ambulances in to bring food and water to armed police and others. After 5 p.m. no cars were allowed in and protesters began overturning cars. At least five ambulances have been torn apart.

    It is reported that several protesters have died and over 100 have been injured, mostly workers. More than 100 people have been arrested.

    The Sichuan Public Security Head has dispatched a group of six to Zhongshan to help manage the situation.

    The latest news is that armed police from Guangzhou, Zhuhai and Foshan have been sent to Shaxi to clear the streets on the morning of June 27. The People’s Liberation Army is also at the ready to “suppress the rebellion” at any time.

    There is no prize for guessing as to the reason why these riots happened in China?. Yes, the answer is economy.

    You see riots also happen in economically powerful and peacefully rising countries like China. ;)

    First there are these protests in Hong Kong.

    Now it is here in Guangdong.

    Extraordinary given that the Chinese Public Security Bureau brooks no nonsense from anyone.

    Surprising that the riots have not been brought under control with the same repression as was done in Tibet.

    As I said before, the US encouraging actively capitalism and all its negative fallout in China is but a gameplan to generate social disparity and discord, exploit the natural Chinese trait for making money and more money as if there is no tomorrow and cause a total chaos in China and finally disintegrate China as they did with USSR.

    The Americans are clever and they know how to wage 'war' without weapons too!

    The repercussions of China's economy collapsing are massive. Even for India. Do not rejoice unless you have already saved for a rainy day. A lot of people will lose jobs even in India.

    It looks very serious if one goes by the photographs. Is the communist political system crumbling?.

    Well, maybe that is how indian political tradition-starting a war to move the public focus.

    But in China, it doesn't work that way. Chinese public mindset won't buy it.

    Especially, these riots are not really something big for chinese. There were thousands of such things in China every single year in past 3 decades!

    Cannibal?

    Guangdong was populated by peoples collectively known as the Baiyue.

    The Hans felt they were barbarian because they "cut their hair short, tattooed their body, live in bamboo groves with neither towns nor villages, possessing neither bows or arrows, nor horses or chariots."

    Is that the reason why you are calling the people of Guangdong as cannibals?



    Actually, the people of the area of the Baiyue are quite independent, even if they have been Sinicized. This area has played a major role in Chinese history.

    The opium traded through Guangzhou triggered the First Opium War, opening an era of foreign incursion and intervention in China.

    The Taiping Rebellion's leader Hong Xiuquan was born in Guangdong. He with the help of a Protestant Christian missionary in Guangdong, led the widespread civil war in southern China. Because of direct contact with the West, Guangdong was the center of anti-Manchu and anti-imperialist activity.

    Sun Yat-sen, the architect of modern China, was also from Guangdong.

    The riots are history repeating itself?

    Wow!

    That's crazy!

    But then Chinese are reputed to eat anything that moves!

    They are a thrifty lot and leave very little to waste.

    Therefore, while it is ridiculous and crazy, it sure is plausible that the man could eat up the face of the woman!
