Beijing Evicted Households Condemn China Communist Regime’s Groundless Suppression (MP3)

A number of rural farmers from Da-Tun and Wali Village in Chaoyang District, Beijing, told reporters that properties of many farmers in suburban Beijing had been forcibly levied and dismantled by the Chinese Government. However, the authorities failed to make reasonable compensation and resettlement. Although they have repeatedly appealed to authorities, they have been groundlessly suppressed.

When asked how they spent the New Year, Li Yu-Kui, a rural resident from Wali Village of Chaoyang District, expressed sorrowfully that his inherited estate was arbitrarily brought down for nearly five years and the problem still remains undissolved. Without income and depending on aid from relatives and friends, they have no home to return to, not to mention the New Year. He said “I have two commercial shops with business licences that paid the state tax in time. Without assessment, or court verdict or any kind of compensation, my assets were seized. To report this grievance and wrongs to the Party’s Central Committee, and the State Council, I had been detained numerous times and was twice sent to forced labour camps.”

A former rural resident of Da-Tun Village, Lu Qing-Cheng revealed that after his property was forcibly dismantled in 2001, he went to appeal to the Central Government (located in Zhong-Nan-Hai) with another six evicted households. Consequently, over twenty of us were seized and detained for eight days, including a six-year old. He stated that it is like this in China, they would simply ignore you if you appeal, and if you sue them, the court would not accept your file. They allotted me the worst unit with no sunshine and the walls were tilted. I turned it down. They then offered me a relatively decent place. But the building with no drawings was not even registered by the government, and it can’t be found over the Internet. It was privately built without state approval, called “the bean curb dregs”.

Another rural resident of Wali Village, Li Xinyuan indicated that his property was demolished with a compensation of only 50,000 yuan offered. He said: “The Government offered me 50,000 yuan, and that is not sufficient to cover our overhead. At the time, I had two school-aged children, and the prices are so high. What is there for me to buy a house?”

According to reports, many farmers from Wali Village and Da-Tun Village of Chaoyang District have been experiencing a troubled life since the forced evictions that caused them to lose sources of livelihood, and they are unable to buy new houses.
