old man vs foced demolition 1

An aged woman, surnamed Ji, raised six national flags and put up a banner that reads “I love Chinese Communist Party, I love Central People’s Government” in front of his house in Dongying, Shangdong province, when a large scale of forced demolition is under way.

Reportedly, the demolition started this March, and the old man has been protesting against it since then.

In order to force him to relocate, the demolition team have cut off the electricity and water supplies, and built a 3-meter high wall to block his way out.

The poor old man is living alone with his disabled wife, as their only son was drafted into the army in this January and is now serving in the South China Sea’s Fleet.

For survival, the old man has to climb up the wall and carry back the food and water from outside.

But the old man believed that the government would not leave them there suffering. So he swore an oath to the bright five-star red flags every day.
