Video on land seizures

Watch video here. Many thanks to Prison Planet for posting this video with insightful details. Those people's homes are bulldozed on short notice to make room for Olympics construction sites. The compensation money, if any, ends up in the CCP's pockets.

Excerpt: Sky News recently produced a segment which highlighted how, despite fierce anger and resistance amongst the people of China, the Communist Government has instilled such fear and has such control over the media that very few dare to stand up and speak out. Those that do are forcibly quashed.

The Government and its contractors are seizing people's land and homes and building their own developments on it, forcing the population into living lives of poverty and squalor.

The state controlled Chinese media does not cover this because they know they would be immediately shut down if they did. The only footage that comes out of China is shot by the people themselves or undercover foreign reporters.

These revelations should remind us of the fact that tyrannical governments, in order to succeed know they have to infiltrate the lives of their populations to every degree, not allowing any fomr of self sufficiency or independence to endanger their iron fist control. (full report)
