Description

"Recently, a shockingly similar picture to the CCP's Cracking Down Local Tyrants Campaign in old days appeared in Fengcheng district of Jiangxi Province: More than 20,000 farmers surrounded a number of county and township governments and looted residences of county and village level officials. The local governments finally calmed down the incident after they assigned at least 2,000 armed policemen to the area and arrested more than 10 people." This report examines what the reason was for "the Communist Party that had grown and thrived from the farmers to have such a sharp conflict with the farmers."
