In China, people are being evicted from their homes
at an alarming rate, according to a recent report
by Amnesty International. Eager to spur economic development, local Communist Party officials have used violence and intimidation to force people out of their homes and farmland, including employing private gangs to attack residents who won't comply with eviction orders. In Hebei Province, however, one father-and-son duo, both devotees of Bruce Lee and facing a gang of over 30 men outside their house, decided to fight back--and won
of the aftermath (apparently only seven thugs were beaten up before the rest ran away). Unfortunately, in the wake of the fight, the family has had to abandon their home and the son is under arrest for assault.
Here is additional reporting
from the Epoch Times. There are some inconsistencies between the Times and Telegraph articles; e.g., the Telegraph names the father as Shen Jianzhong, which the Times says is the name of the son. But the basic story seems to be legitimate.
