Background on Plant

Protests

Due to complaints from farmers that the plant was ruining their crops and toxins were leaching into groundwater, Hou Shier Quan residents near the plant were able to convince the local government to negotiate increased reparations from the company that owns the power plant: an additional 50 yuan per year for each farmer (roughly $7, or the cost of an average meal in Beijing).[1]
