This so tragic. We felt so bad for the people in the vibrant river towns on the Yangtze before the flooding from the dam destroyed thier towns; they were to be relocated to ugly project type buildings above the river or to other areas of the country. This well written article tells how much worse it has become for these forced migrants from all the government's projects. Thanks for sharing.
