A man in Guangzhou went to weird extremes to reclaim land he allegedly owns, by placing a 12-meter tall, 2.5-meter wide cargo container in front of the entrance of the school that now stands there
His efforts were seemingly in vain. The container, which was spotted at around 7:00 a.m. on Monday morning, was pulled out of the pedestrian road by 11:00 a.m. with a crane, leaving a two-meter-wide path for the teachers and students to enter the school.
The man, who claims to have bought the land back in November 2013, attached a note to the container warning that he was going to cut the electricity and water supply of the school as well. He advised parents to find another school for their children.
Local residents said the container was delivered and placed outside the entrance at around 10:00 p.m. on Sunday.
The kindergarten’s principal said that the land dispute is currently being handled legally. He added that, despite the man’s various threats, classes will not be affected.
