In pictures: Chinese air pollution campaigners
Introduction

BBC News visits residents of Tangshan, China, who are fighting against air pollution from a nearby coke plant.

The problem is symptomatic of the country's reliance on coal products for energy.

All attempts to interview the plant's management were turned down.

Campaign leader Liu Hongkui (left), 77, says many people blame local cancer deaths on the plant.
