China - Jiangsu - Yixing - Land Protest - A Man Holds a Picture of His Home being Destroyed
Wu Jiang Xing holds a photograph of his home being destroyed in Yixing city in rural Jiangsu province. These farmers have been forcibly removed from their lands and have had their homes destroyed to build a tourism complex. China's rapid economic growth has also seen a sharp increase in illegal land seizures by local government officials, who often offer farmers low sums of money for their land or in many cases even remove farmers with no compensation.
