This publication tells the stories of workers, in their own words, as they protest for a redress of greivances — usually in defiance of their employers, government authorities, the official union, and threats of violence and imprisonment. The accounts are based on interviews by Shanker Board member Han Donfgang, China’s leading labor rights advocate and China Labour Bulletin editor.

There is ample evidence that it has been used to thwart the democratic will of “we the people” in a different states and in a number of recent elections.
