What happens if your house is in the middle of a redevelopment zone? In China that normally means that you have bad luck. You might get some form of compensation, but you need to move out before the bulldozers come. No way around it it seems, at least most of the time. A family in Chongqing (rumoured to have good government connections) refused to accept compensation and move. The picture shows what happened: they now live on a 12 meter high cliff in one of the most densely populated cities in China!
Update: It turns out that my media sources were wrong, the China Herald reports that the house is not owned by protesters, but by the construction company. It is used as the constructor’s temporary residence.
