video: 2,000 People Riot in China Zhengzhou City

Posted by Author on June 9, 2007

Radio Free Asia, 2007.06.07-

Riots broke out in Zhengzhou city, Henan province, on the evening of June 6. About two thousand students and residents surrounded and yelled at the police who was protecting a city inspector who had beaten up a female university student. Five students were arrested.

Many residents captured the riotous moment on video with their cellphones as the police tried to shield the inspector and other policemen. The witness who provided RFA with this video footage tried to post it on a Chinese content sharing Web site but the file was taken down within an hour.

The video shows an exited crowd, yelling “get him out, get him out.” The protestors eventually set the police car on fire. The riots lasted until midnight.

The following day, Zhengzhou government announced that one city inspector and four policemen were detained, two supervisors were dismissed and four other city inspectors and one policeman received warnings.

They also said that the female student who was beaten had been hospitalized and was in good condition. She was vending goods in the street to make extra money when the city inspectors approached her and beat her.
