Beijing is taking out their “low end population” right now in the middle of winter. Yeah, they are actually calling them low end people. These are migrants from the countryside who live in make-shift shacks and other illegal buildings. Government just sticks a notice telling them to move in 3 days. And by the way water and power will be cut tomorrow.
It’s very brutal and very efficient. Imagine all the homeless population in Bay Area gone in a week.
