Dushan County in Guizhou Province has many unfinished buildings that result in a debt of 40 billion yuan ($5.7 billion USD). Recently, an independent media, now commonly known as We Media, published a video introducing every single unfinished building in the county. The video went viral. Local residents revealed that the local government is extremely corrupt and the lands to build these unfinished infrastructures were purchased from the locals with low prices. Many houses on the lands were demolished by the government without notice and compensation. Local residents are being suppressed by the government for defending their rights.
