This is Yang Youde, a farmer who lives on the outskirts of Wuhan city. Since February 2010, he was attacked by several eviction teams as he rejected a sum of $19,030 for his land. Property developers, who want to build department buildings on his land, didn’t want to pay him the sum he asked which is five times more than what they offered.
After eviction teams tried to eject him from his house, he built a canon from a wheelbarrow and pipes. He makes ammunition from locally sold fireworks. The rockets can reach over 100 metres, and explode with a deafening bang. Little is known if anyone was injured til now.
In May he held off 100 people by firing from a makeshift watchtower.
Way to go man!
