Thousands of Beijing families report having their homes forcibly destroyed by authorities. Doors to private property have been broken down daily, according to locals, before houses are torn down.

Residents in one Beijing neighborhood are facing what many would call a nightmare. They live in Beijing’s  “Xiangtang Cultural Village” inside the Changping District. But now, the regime is coercing them into moving out in the middle of winter.

If they refuse, officials use other tactics to persuade them—like cutting off their water, heat, and electricity. Homeowners’ names will also be added to a blacklist.
