Picture of the day: Petitioner on her knees
On March 21, an outdoor performance showcasing intangible cultural heritage was staged in Huaiyang County in central Henan Province. After the master of ceremony announced the beginning of the show, a woman broke through the security cordon and ran to Ren Lianjun, the Communist Party boss of Huaiyang County, knelt down, and cried out her grievances. A policeman in uniform and a security guard hurried over to drag her away. During this time, Ren Lianjun, the official of the highest rank in the county, was completely indifferent and remained in his seat watching the show.
