Documenting Mass Protest Incidents

For several years, the Blog News Worth Knowing or Wickedonna was a major source of information on mass protests in China before the people who ran it, Lu Yuyu and Li Tingyu, were arrested in 2016. Lu Yuyu was released from prison this year, and Cao Yaxue wrote an interesting article on the project of documenting social protests in China: Documenting Mass Protest Incidents: The Extraordinary Story of Two Ordinary Chinese.

For those who want to read more about Lu Yuyu and Li Tingyu, their collected data on mass protests, and the development of social struggles in China, check out the article published by Chuang in 2019: Picking Quarrels. Lu Yuyu, Li Tingyu and the Changing Cadence of Class Struggle in China.
