It's kinda like what the Chairman was supposed to have exclaimed, "The people have stood up!"

Make no mistake, this is citizen activism. And the focus is on inequality and injustice, from the Bigwigs in the Kremlin to the Fatcats on Wall Street, the people have had enough...

Who will be Person of the Year in 2012?

I nominate those coming into China, escaping poverty and unemployment in their home country, enjoying decent status here, recovering from their low self-esteem, respected just because of their appearance and pronunciation, enjoy porridge here etc etc.

They regain their life here in China. But don't have slightest feeling of gratitude to the land that tolerate their wickedness.

The visa-begging-gweilo, ungrateful losers and alien parasites.

Wowzers, if you go to Wukan and speak nonsense about China, those villagers will stand up to kick you out of their village.  No real Chinese like to hear nonsense from a gweilo no matter how unsatisfied they are with their own government.

List of civil disturbances in the People's Republic of China (2011)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2011 Chinese protests were a series of civil disturbances that took place in the People's Republic of China. The first significant protest movement was inspired by the Jasmine Revolution in the Middle East. Later in the year, protests across the country had begun to occur with greater and greater frequency.[1] Notable protests include:

    The 2011 Chinese pro-democracy protests – weekly demonstrations called by overseas dissidents to begin on 20 February.
    The 2011 Yunnan protest occurred from 25 to 29 March 2011 in Suijiang County, Yunnan
    The 2011 Shanghai riot (2011 上海城管打人事件) occurred on 13 April 2011 in Jiuting (九亭) in the Songjiang District Shanghai.[2]
    The 2011 Xilinhot incident occurred at the night of 10 May 2011 in Xilinhot, China when a local herdsman was killed by a coal truck driver. The incident resulted in numerous protests.[2] After the incident, the government provided compensation to the family, upgraded environmental rules, and dismissed the local Communist Party chief. The truck driver was tried, found guilty of murder, and sentenced to the death penalty on 8 June.
    On 15 May in Abag Banner, Inner Mongolia another Han Chinese coal miner named Sun Shuning (孙树宁) drove a forklift and hit Yan Wenlong (闫文龙), a 22 year old Manchu.[3][4] Yan led a group of 20 people to dispute noise, dust and pollution. When they began smashing properties, a clash ensued.[5] In the clash Yan died, and 7 people were injured.[3]
    The 2011 Chaozhou riot (潮州6·6事件) began on the night of Duanwu Festival 6 June 2011 in Guxiang (古巷镇) Chao'an County, Chaozhou, Guangdong, People's Republic of China.[6][7]
    The 2011 Zengcheng riot (增城6·11事件)
    Protests over multiple oil spills and the breach of dyke protecting the Fujian Petrochemical Plant after Typhoon Muifa struck caused 12,000 protesters to gather in People's Square in Dalian to protest their environmental concerns and potential health hazards caused by the disasters.[8]
    The 2011 Lufeng city riot – rioting occurred in Wukan Village in September over allegations that corrupt Communist Party officials had seized cooperative land and sold it to real estate developers without proper compensation.[9]
