* Chinese Migrant Workers Unrest Flares

NY times: “A fight between a teenager from a migrant worker family and a local boy in southern China escalated into rioting and protests this week.

The unrest, which followed the teenagers’ fight on Monday and the subsequent beating of the migrant boy by local villagers, occurred in the area of Shaxi in Guangdong Province. Migrant protesters smashed storefront windows and overturned cars, including police vehicles and ambulances, according to photographs of the rioting posted on the Internet. Caijing, a Chinese news organization, also reported that hundreds of riot police officers clashed with villagers in the Foshan area of Guangdong on Tuesday after the villagers protested illegal land seizures.”
