Fishing — and normal life — on hold in Wukan, China

Locals say that after they fought off a police advance on Dec. 11 and closed off the town to village security forces and Chinese Communist Party officials, government boats chased the fisherman from open waters into a harbor of the South China Sea. While there's no blockade to be seen, the fear of the unknown is enough to keep most of the boats moored.
