Mrs Wu Ends Her Fight 3 April 2007

Posted by David in China, Wu Ping.

Her battle to save her little house had become an international story, but today the tiny house of Mrs Wu Ping is no more. The BBC reports “the family of Wu Ping gave up defending their Chongqing house after reportedly reaching a deal with the authorities. The nail house – so called because it refused to be hammered down – had been isolated in a huge construction pit after other households agreed to move. The dispute became a cause celebre for ordinary Chinese people who have tried to fight property developers. But the struggle came to an end on Tuesday, when a few dozen people looked on as the two-storey brick building was broken up by an earth mover.”

I hope she was happy with her final agreed compensation.
