Nail People – Chengdu China

Nail people is a term used in China to describe those that refuse to accept compensation from the government (or property developer) to demolish their homes to make way for a new development.

When I met this group of families in Chengdu I was struck by their pride and happiness whist living in the most squalid conditions.

This particular story is still a work in progress. I am returning to China in July 2015 to finish the story and speak again to the families I met in April 2014 who have now been relocated from this site.
