Wuhan Farmer Repels Forced Eviction Team With Homemade Weapons
Yang Youde is a farmer who had contracted to rent 25 mu of land. The lease was set to continue until 2019. Over the years, Yang has been raising fish, cattle, cotton, melons and fruits on the land.
Last year, Yang Youde learned that his land had been requisitioned. Since the compensation terms for breaking the contract had not been settled, he has refused to move out.
“The evictors said many times that they will move on me.” Earlier this year, Yang took measures to protect himself. He took a hand-truck and removed the front. Then he put in a set of rockets for use as an artillery battery.
