Dragons in Diamond Village 14:00 13th Mar / The Opposite House
David Bandurski, moderated by Josh Chin
Dragons in Diamond Village: And Other Tales from the Back Alleys of Urbanising China takes a look at the grassroots social activism emerging in China’s cities as local villagers seek a greater voice in their country’s breakneck drive for a new urban future. The book, which took David Bandurski nearly ten years to research and write, tells the stories of a band of unlikely activists, including Huang Minpeng, a semi-literate farmer turned self-taught rights defender, and Li Qizhong, a Guangzhou urban villager who refuses to relinquish his ancestral home to a powerful property developer. These tales take us into the heart of new China. Moderated by Wall Street Journal reporter Josh Chin.
