Protest over Incinerator Injures Dozens in China

Source: Environmental Expert, Date: May , 2014

A protest in eastern China over a plan to build a waste incinerator turned violent, with state media reporting that at least 10 demonstrators and 29 police officers were injured in clashes. Demonstrators on Saturday overturned 30 vehicles, set two police cars on fire and blocked a highway linking Hangzhou with another city, the official Xinhua News Agency said. A protester and a policeman were seriously injured. Environmental protests have been on the rise in China, with the public becoming increasingly critical of pollution and health hazards from industry. Such concerns resonate well among Chinese, but also pose a serious political challenge to the ruling Communist Party.
