How they deal with crooked government officials in China
In south China's Guangdong province some crooked officials built a garbage dump without notifying residents. So the residents took over City Hall so to speak.

This is in Chinese, but there's a lot of photos, and if you use Google Chrome browser, you can get an idea of the text

They have tens of thousands of protests a year there. Since they do not tranquilize their citizens with flouride or prozac, the people tend to act when pushed too far, instead of just griping.

 Quoting: krinkfan


The people who run the government today were the same young people who revolted fifty years ago.

They switch roles but ultimately power corrupts all eventually and the cycle repeats.
