Beijing Bulletin - mass relocations
Beijing's new airport terminal
With the minimum of fuss, nine villages inhabited by about 10,000 people were moved to build Beijing's new airport terminal.

Can you imagine the uproar if Heathrow announced it wanted to relocate thousands of people to build a new terminal?

There would be battles in the courts, in the newspapers and on the streets that would take years, if not decades, to resolve.

But in China there is only silence from those displaced by the terminal.
