Since 14 December 2015, more than a thousand local residents protested against the settlement of a solar panel manufacturer near their residential area in Shoudou and Xiadian Community, Quanzhou City, Fujian Province. The demonstrators included the elderly and women, who gathered to block the street to protest for three days, until the Wednesday night 16 December 2015 when the police dispersed the crowd by force. Subsequently, many residents were wounded by a large number of anti-riot police and nearly twenty people were detained. The main concern to the local residents was the potential pollution and radiation from the planned solar cell plant, and residents were not consulted during the environmental impact assessment of the project. It was reflected that they sent petition letters to the government, but without any responses. Thus, the purpose of the demonstration is to render the administrative authorities to respect the public opinion and to stop the project.
