Petitioner uses belt in protest

GUANGZHOU: A petitioner has used a belt to fasten himself to Haizhu Bridge and avoid becoming the second person to be pushed off by frustrated locals.

Residents are impatient with the rising number of petitioners who attempt to publicize their cause by threatening to jump from the downtown bridge.

Local police were again called downtown on Tuesday at 9 am, when the 13th petitioner in two months climbed the bridge to draw attention to allegations that his store had been illegally repossessed.
