Villagers take a stand in Wukan, China — but for how long?

Lin Zulian and Yang Semao are wanted men.

Such a threat would terrify most Chinese in a nation infamous for police state tactics. But on Friday morning, both men stood in front of a crowd of thousands here and railed against local corruption.
