China struggling to control increasingly violent public protests – Audra Ang

From Maclean’s:

Increasingly violent throughout China over land, taxes and other disputes are forcing the government to strike a difficult balance, trying to maintain order while letting the public vent frustrations to prevent a larger explosion, analysts say.

In the latest incident, police last week shot and killed villagers protesting land seizures in Dongzhou, a coastal village northeast of Hong Kong. The government says three people were killed, while residents put the death toll at up to 20.
