Chongqing "Nail House"

In Chongqing, the Chongqing Zhengsheng Real Estate Company has turned a house into an island after the owners refused to move out. The Jiulongpo Court of the Chongqing has ordered the home owners to move out, but Yang Wu and his wife Wu Ping are defending their home and fighting for their legal rights. The couple even raised a national flag to show their determination to keep their home.

The two-storied house now stands alone in a ten meter pit in Chongqing. Wu Ping, a 49 year old restauranteur, is defiant in the face of the developers. In a recent turn of events her husband has taken up residency in the isolated building to prevent forced demolition. Wu originally asked for a shop front of the same size near the site as compensation but the developers only promised rooms on the fourth and fifth floor or the underground garage.

Despite efforts by the Chinese authorities to quash the story, Wu Ping’s stand against the relentless pace of development in China continues to draw international attention (and support).

Under the Bridge

Phone conversation may have gone like this...

"Yeah! Great news, we can definitely go for that Valentine's meal tonight that I was trying to arrange. "
"My foreman said it would be fine if I left early and not to worry about that 5am start on Monday either. Apparently the work has just dried up. "
"He said he'd be sure to let me know if any other driving jobs came along."
"What? No, I've not seen the news yet..."
