Pace and Scope of Protest in China Accelerated in ’05 – Joseph Kahn

From The New York Times:

Chinese took to the streets to protest land seizures, corruption, pollution and unpaid wages in record numbers in 2005, the national police said Thursday, with mass incidents that involved violent confrontations or attacks on government property surging at the fastest rate.

The number of "public order disturbances" rose 6.6 percent last year, to 87,000. Mass that involved "disturbing social order" jumped 13 percent, while those that "interfered with government functions" surged 19 percent, the Public Security Bureau, the national police, told Chinese reporters at a news conference on Thursday that was reported by the New China News Agency.
