Chapter one looks into the lawsuit submitted by many Wuhan residents against their city government. Although the residents, most of whom were affluent homeowners, all had lawful certificates when they bought their new apartments along the Yangzi (Yangtze) River in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the local government demanded immediate evacuation from their new homes in 2001. The fierce fight between preserving and demolishing their buildings would last for 130 days.
