Mapping the News in 2013

Mapping the News in 2013

Once again, 2013 was a busy year in China, from the Southern Weekly protests which started the year to Mao’s 120th birthday, which ended it. CDT has tracked major news stories that we have covered throughout the year in a handy Google Map, so you can see where China news broke, both in China and around the world. Enjoy, and Happy New Year! [Click on individual pins or on the CDT News Map link at the bottom to read entries on each event.]
