China villagers protest corruption – BBC

From the BBC:

Villagers in southern China have vowed to continue their protest against alleged local corruption following their arrest for a hunger strike.

More than 80 people in Taishi village, Guangdong province, refused food on Wednesday because they said the local authorities had ignored their concerns.

Seventeen of them were arrested on Thursday morning but were later released without charge.
