Chinese Couple: We’re Not Moving. House Built Around Them.

Years ago there was a funny cartoon about Bugs Bunny who refused to leave his home even through it was in the path of a new super highway. In the cartoon Bugs managed to thwart all attempts  by the mean highway man to move him. In the end he stayed and the road was built around his little cabin. You can watch the video here.

Funny then. But in real life?

Here’s a true story about an elderly Chinese couple who refused to move for the new road. Chinese law does not allow for eviction of people from their home in cases like this. The couple felt the compensation offered by the highway department was not enough for them to rebuild a similar home elsewhere and refused to move. The end result, like in the cartoon, the road was build around their home.

Would this happen in America?
