Yet another nail-house (钉子户) confrontation involving angry residents and anti-government banners took place recently in Guangzhou, though at least this time it all ended happily. On September 6th, 2011, Yao Runzhen (姚润珍) engaged in a heated negotiation with housing officials, protesting against their eviction and refusing to move, despite the reality of their neighborhood turning into rubble and fine dust. After a successful negotiation involving a satisfactory compensation package however, the couple willingly backs down, while the “Good Life” (好生) demolition company tears down their abode.
