    • But a Transport and Housing Bureau spokesman said it was regretted the villagers had not cooperated with moving plans. He said the protesters who trespassed into the construction site were posing risks to themselves and others. He urged to observe the law.

    Questions

    • The villagers are not fairly treated. There is a saying that the villagers have been specially treated as huge compensation was given to the villagers. The fact is most of the compensation was granted to the landlord.
    • There is an agreement between government officials and the villagers that the new village will be built before the old village is demolished. And the government has promised to handle the clearance in a humane way. The promise is not kept.
    • The crop compensation is not fair to the farmers. Firstly, it is just ex-gratia compensation. The farmers refused to accept the proposed compensation and asked the government to negotiate with them face-to-face. The government however cleared up the farmland without reaching an agreement with the affected farmers.
