Shishou City on June 20. (bbs.163.com)

Mysterious death sparks 70,000 to protest in Hubei Province

Amongst the rising public protests and outcry in China, the Shishou riot was one of the largest “mass incidents” in 2009. The riot (in June) was sparked by the death of a young cook named Tu Yuangao in Hunan Province’s Shishou City with a small population of only 100,000.

However, suspecting the cause of Tu’s death was not suicide as authorities claimed, 70,000 Shishou citizens took to the streets and protested against the local authorities when police tried to seize Tu’s corpse and have it cremated. An estimated 8,000 trained riot police were dispatched to the scene to subdue the protests.
