Another Case of An Emerging Chinese Civil Society

This weekend's edition of Financial Times has a report on page 2 about Chinese investors to sue over oil well seizures. Here is the interesting bit:

"Investor activists, who have faced detention by Shaanxi police, are also pushing their campaign for greater compensation with a website www.sbmysy.com that offers details of their claims and even a summary of government pronouncements to allow readers to “hear both sides”.

Such sophisticated methods and the public support of academics underline a widening of debate within China's emergent civil society on legal and social issues."
