This iReport is part of an assignment:
What’s your secret spot in Beijing?
Violent demolition of my HOME in Qingdao, China
No.7, 579 Xi-Wujiacun, Qingdao, China
My home, my house,
1940 built by my grandfather Huang Zi'an with 18 rooms;
1953 Qingdao goverment granted the private owned land license with 1.808 mu (1204 M2);
1956 During the said 'public-private partnership', the government took from my grandfather most rooms with for us only 0.469mu (312 M2) land plus 6 rooms left;
1970 Government built houses on the 0.469 mu land and rent by themselves while we kept pay the land tax till now.
2012 Government will demolish my house but does not admit our owership with the 0.469mu land.
We fight but as you know that in China the government is so strong to control everything. We even cannot publish this truth.
I come here to ask for help...
