Chinese woman lights herself on fire

In the United States, homeowners are protesting fraudclosures by simply squatting and not paying their mortgages at all.
Some 4.2 million mortgage borrowers are either seriously delinquent or have had their cases referred to lawyers to pursue foreclosure auctions, according to LPS Applied Analytics. Of those, two-thirds have made no payments at all for at least a year, and nearly one-third have gone more than two years.

In China, developers/bankstas/local officials are just demolishing the houses of those who won't be lowballed to make room for new developments, and Zhang Shulan set herself on fire to protest the forced demolition of her home.
Unfortunately for Shulan, the "hired thugs" who showed up to evict her intervened in her suicide attempt, and now she looks like this.
