By Xin Fei, The Epoch Times, Sep 28, 2007- (excerpt)200 residents of Taiping Village gathered to protest the arrest of twelve villagers

On September 24, nearly 200 villagers from Taiping Village, Chendu City, Sichuan Province surrounded the Hongpai Building belonging to the local township government. The villagers were demanding the release of 12 local residents who had been arrested after travelling to Beijing to appeal. Three of the villagers have been released. Nine villagers remain in police custody.

This is the only method available to Chinese citizens who are victim of government malfeasance.

Villagers Yuan Zhongli and Wu Deyu told The Epoch Times that they appreciate the support they have received from journalists and friends inside and outside of China. The villagers expressed their hope that continued support will result in the release of the nine villagers still remaining in police custody.

Yuan said that the villagers had surrounded the township government office building. Their demands included speaking with the general secretary of the office Yang Ping and identification of the locations of the nine villagers now in police custody. After their meeting, the general secretary promised that she would respond to the villager’s demands within 24 hours……. (more details from the Epochtimes)
