Farmer Xiang stands in front of his house in the town of Gushi, Henan Province
Farmer Xiang Wen Jiang stands in front of his house, surrounded by newly constructed residential buildings in the town of Gushi, Henan Province March 28, 2010. Local authorities have tried to evict Xiang from his home, who is refusing to move until he is properly compensated. China risks growing social instability and even violence if the government does not take effective action to address rising public anger about forced evictions and demolitions, a report released on Monday said. Property disputes in the country where the government legally controls all land can lead to rowdy protests, fights with police, imprisonment and even suicide. The Chinese Urgent Action Working Group, a China-based rights lobby, said the country's rapid economic growth over the past few years had produced "a pandemic of illegal demolition", with corrupt officials often colluding with developers.
