Indignant Tianjin Petitioners Rush Party Office Building

August 20, 2012

This article (Chinese only) describes how on August 20, 2012, more than 50 petitioners rushed the office building for the Tianjin Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection of Communist Party. The petitioners had requested to meet with the commission heads so they could discuss how to resolve their problems. They waited for over two hours, yet no one came to meet them; eventually, they charged into the building. All of the petitioners had sought justice from relevant government departments previously, all without any resolution. Their complaints included forced evictions, housing disputes, and medical malpractice. Dozens of policemen were called to stop the petitioners.
