River Crab Archive: Yunnan Villagers Protest Land Grabs in May

When something disappears from the Internet in , netizens joke that it has been “river-crabbed,” a play on the euphemism “harmonized.” The River Crab Archive is a collection of blog post titles, weibo, and other materials deleted from their original sources on Chinese , either found by CDT or brought to our attention by outside projects. The editors have selected river-crabbed information of note from CDT Chinese’s ongoing compendium of the same name (河蟹档案).

The following deleted weibo was selected by CDT Chinese editors from FreeWeibo.
