Near Riot Breaks out in Wenzhou in demands for government action over beating death



For the Chinese post link here:

Over 200 people assembled this afternoon at government offices in the Rui’an City near Wenzhou in demands that government officials intervene and settle a dispute over compensation for a public worker’s death after being beaten on the street two weeks ago.  The size and scope of the riot seems to express more than just anger over this one incident and Wenzhou has received a heavier blow from the broader economic slowdown.  The police deployment was also overwhelming, perhaps signaling a fear of wider implications on the part of local authorities.
