These five women live at the 14th group, Xingzhuang village (邢庄村), Linying County (临颍县), Henan Province (河南省). Their farmlands were taken by the government for development but they did not agree on the compensation for their lose. In 2009, their family members had conflicts with developers. They were paid additional compensations by the government. In 2010, the local government took more farmlands from them and were denied by the families. On August 27, the government arrested their husbands on charges of “extortion”. Since then, the wives had appealed to everywhere they could think of. But they didn’t get any result. Therefore, they sought this means.
