In the recent week, several regions of mainland China have severe environment crisis outbreaks which threatening chinese civilians at a great extent, especially Wuxi 无锡 and Xiamen 厦门. Both of these cities have entered a red-alert critical situation due to horrible environment crisis, you will absolutely terrified when you heard one of scenic lakes of China, Taihu, have been seriously contaminated and caused more than a millions of Wuxi people lacked of drinkable water. Well, i was mad too, and completely shocked when i looking on those disgusting photos. Oh my god, my pity Taihu.
I visited Wuxi and Taihu last summer, and petrified by extremely picturesque scene (possibly polluted place was not in tourism place...). And fishes of taihu were delicious too (hopefully the lake haven't been contaminated). But now....
Ouch, disgusting!!! Booming of blue green algae causing a massive killing of aquatic organisms.
Guys, you must watch this video!!! it tell out whole story regarding wuxi water crisis. SAD
Besides Wuxi, another island city of china is also facing an environmental crisis, but fortunately it haven't happened yet or not the fate of entire city will receive the same consequences of Hiroshima 6 August 1945, or even more horrible. Xiamen, last week residents of the city held a demonstration to protest against a chemical factory which planned to build beside residential area. Residents voiced out their furious opposition to construction of the factory which has been approved by local government, they walked on the street and shouted "No PX, protect Xiamen". PX is abbreviation of P-Xylene, this chemical substances is highly dangerous to human health, is one of the dreadful cancer causing agents and probably lethal to baby or children. The situation just like building a nuke reactor beside your home, and what will you do!?!?
Have to take note that, this demonstration was the first demonstration since 1989 Tiananmen democratic movement. Well, environment crisis have been waking up people democracy in china, it's a wonderful starting. But. Sigh. In an autocratic regime like mainland china, this kind of peaceful procession is forbidden, and maybe will be viewed as disturbing harmonious society 颠覆和谐社会 or even counterrevolution, what's a ridiculous words!!! And, this is expected, in the following days of this splendid democratic movement, the whole city trapped into a white terror condition, the authority started to "take action" and news reported that the armed forces exist every corner of the city. I wonder the tank will enter the city, haha, probably warships surrounding the island city and plus some nuke submarine waiting for mission. Sigh. Sad.
SUPPORT XIAMEN RESIDENTS PROTECT THEIR LOVELY HOMELAND, AND STOP THE PX!!!
