REVOLUTION IN CHINA: protesters occupy government office, force cancellation of waste project
The Chinese government is suffering intense public scrutiny in recent days, especially over environmental issues. China is one of the largest of polluters on the planet- and the Chinese people have begun to take a firm stance against the degradation of their country.
The cancellation of a government sponsored industrial waste project is a victory for the Chinese people. With greater pressure applied, it may be possible for the Chinese to bring down the communist, new world order regime installed over their lives.
It would seem that the ever expanding Chinese population is becoming a force too powerful for the government to effectively manage.

Yahoo! News — Chinese officials canceled an industrial waste pipeline project on Saturday after anti-pollution demonstrators occupied a government office in eastern China, destroying computers and overturning cars.
The demonstration was the latest in a string of protests sparked by fears of environmental degradation and highlights the social tensions the government in Beijing faces as it approaches a leadership transition this year.
It was also the second cancellation of an industrial project this month, as officials buckle under pressure from protests.
