Local residents occupy the local government building during a protest against an industrial waste pipeline under construction in Qidong, Jiangsu Province July 28, 2012. Angry demonstrators occupied a government office in eastern China on Saturday, destroying computers and overturning cars parked outside in a violent protest against an industrial waste pipeline they said would poison their coastal waters. The demonstration was the latest in a string of protests sparked by fears of environment degradation and highlights the social tensions the government in Beijing is having to deal with as it approaches a leadership transition this year. About 1,000 protesters marched through the coastal city of Qidong, about one hour north of Shanghai by car, shouting slogans against the plan to build a pipeline through the city that would empty waste from a nearby paper factory into the sea.
