This is to share news reports and images of anti-mining protestors (local Tibetan villagers) having to confront Chinese security forces in Zatoe County in Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Qinghai Province. From what I can tell from these news reports, the situation has been very tense for the last few days and it is getting worse.
All photos on this post are from Woser's blog. Read her Chinese language blog for more information about the situation.
Compare this photo to the one below. It looks like the protestors lying on the ground have been shot with tear gas.
