Beijing Tells Petitioners: Please Stay Home - WSJ

Since imperial times, China has permitted its citizens to file official complaints. But the State Bureau for Letters and Calls that governs the system is again warning petitioners to respect its protocol, or expect their petition to be ignored.

In its newest body of regulations, the bureau said this week that anyone with a complaint should pursue it close to home and preferably in writing. The regulations take aim at efforts by many protesters to cut red tape and pursue their bureaucratic, legal and financial grievances in Beijing, where they hope to get a fair hearing — despite a low rate of success. The rules state that petitions that arrive from outside the channels will not be accepted.
Since imperial times, China has permitted its citizens to file official complaints. But the way they can do so is changing.

Pollution stops water supply in Wuhan, 300,000 people affected - Xinhua

Two major water suppliers in a central China city have halted production following water contamination in a local river on Wednesday, affecting more than 300,000 people, local authorities said.

The Baihezui and Yushidun water plants in Wuhan, capital of Hubei province, suspended water production at around 4 m and 7pm respectively, after tests showed that the Wuhan section of the Han River, a major tributary of the Yangtze, contained excessive amount of ammonia and nitrogen, the city government said in a statement.

Window Dressing - China´s Massive Trade Union Isn´t Standing Up for Workers Rights - TealeafNation

Well into its second week, a shoe factory workers’ strike in the southern manufacturing hub of Dongguan — possibly one of the largest strikes in recent Chinese history according to U.S.-based NGO China Labor Watch — shows no sign of reaching a resolution. Since April 14, more than 40,000 employees at the Dongguan plant of shoe manufacturing giant Yue Yuen have gone on strike to protest what they claim areunderpayment of social security benefits as well as labor contract abnormalities. But one item on the list of worker demands may come as a surprise: The right to elect union leaders. -

Japan´s Mitsui pays China to release seized ship - Court - Reuters

Japan's Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd paid about $29 million for the release of a ship seized by China over a dispute that dates back to the 1930s war between the countries, China's Supreme Court said on Thursday.

The Chinese government has described the case as a simple business dispute unrelated to wartime compensation claims, but it has become a cause célèbre for activists in China seeking redress from Japan.

Rabies rise reversed in China

The resurgence in rabies in China that started in the 1990s is slowly being curbed, but the infection still causes more than a thousand deaths a year, a new report shows.
After a peak of almost 3500 cases in 2007, the incidence of rabies in China has since declined by about 50%, with around 1500 reported cases in 2012, according to a study from the State Key Laboratory for Infectious Disease Prevention and Control and the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Beijing.

Nice authentic Chinese food (not spoiled by European tastes) that is very good when you are craving for Chinese food after too much Italian. Preparation was a bit fast-food style, but tasting pretty well. Staff was very friendly and the atmosphere, well, real Chinese.
