People Against Maglev Train in Shanghai China.It happened at 21:00 on 6th Jan 2008 in Shanghai China. People gathered in Xu Jia Hui Plaza.

It seems that protections without getting permissions from government in advance are now legal in China?

its not just olympics, our wisdom in Martial arts influcenced the whole world. most importantly, Chinese is the only race that has surpassed the white race for 18 centuries out of 20 centuries and now whites are so worried about the reemergence of the Chinese which will push them back into the caves.

bs. they just want to get more relocation fee.

They are afraid of plumping price of their houses if the train had been built near their district. People believe that strong magnetism is harmful to health.

in fact, it's only a topical piece of view. you only see the teens shouting, but you can't see the man sitting behind. that very common in china. when the government say yes, there's always a group of people want a No, no matter right or wrong. it's not where the reason rules, it's their naive thinking and the mask man's wanting conspiring.

A protest against having the MagLev Train that can travel at over 500km/hr... hardly makes any pollution if any at all... and produces hardly any noise? Could somebody please let me know exactly why is there this response? My guess would be the billions of dollars that these citizens are most likely going to get taxed.

It is a great country but there are problems which need sorting out. Crime is a huge problem especially violent crime. The problem is the clueless leadership. Chinese business we targeted by criminals but they have taken precautions now so the attaks have diminished. Myself when I drive at night I keep a pistol against my thigh. New goverment will come in next year and maybe things will improve. Regards

kind of like america could be, but our xenophobic stance toward world politics is tantamount to governmental suicide. Embrace the world, don't control it. nobody likes a bully.

The maglev is too expensive. More metro lines is a very good substitution.

ah... i forgot that it could cause many homes to get knocked down, thank you.

It would be nice to have such a project here in Chicago to keep up with the rise in population and loss of jobs. A major infrastruture project such as this technology would help our state as well as our country, unfortunatly the powers that be do not want this at this time, maybe the air line companys? soon we should see the reality of what we need to stimulate the economy!

The only thing I have against MagLev is that the company convinced the Chinese government to use eminent domain to build the track - the chinese government threw people out of their homes and confiscated property to build the track. I believe it's important to respect private property, and so I don't like governments confiscating property from people. But the MagLev technology itself is a great invention that makes transportation quicker, and it's good to build maglev and not regular trains.

because the safe gap between the residents building and the maglev train should be around 150-200m, but the government just designed 22.5m for the safety gap.

wtf are you talking about? this is a PROTEST against the government, this shows the exact opposite of what you're thinking. Besides, communism is an economic ideology - has nothing to do how govenment is ran.

Beginning of democratic reactions in China? Good :) I agree they dont have to be the test-rats of the effects of maglev (and its magnetic field) on humans ! Even if we ourselves are the same lab-rats for the GSM technology, the wifi technology, the gmo technology....

hehe, if everyone has acted like this, China wouldn't have its economic miracle...In current financial and political situation, protests will only hurt everyone in the end. We need a strong central government at this stage. Protesting is good, but it is just a wrong time.

Too bad people can not decide whether they need the maglev train or not in shanghai. What a city? Expo 2010? Forget it!

Democracy derives from people's life.

I can understand people being against the government destroying homes, and not working with the citizens to plan the train, but you would have this problem if you tried to do this type of planning with any train. Maglev is still a lot quieter than normal trains, and maglev power will solve our energy crisis. This is just REALLY bad planning by the Shanghai planning board, it doesn't mean that maglev isn't a good idea.

Maybe if you want more info on the maglev i advise you to watch a TV Show called MegaStructures - Future Trains.

Thanks for the translation. We have been having rolling blackouts for the past 12 days in Johannesburg and trains have been burnt by angry mobs because they were late.

Chinese,The Most Envied Race/Civilization huge land, a pure race, culturely, great economy, great technology, strong military and nukes, most thoughtful leaders, independent political system, physically superior(olympics) the huge land and pure race combination is enough. mutts (americans), and losers from failed races/civilizations(small countries) envy the pure and mighty Chinese race

communist china- that should answer your question they're fuck,n communist and they do what the fuck they want and they're very ignorant.

Too bad that China is very likely going to destroy itself! The work ideal of "as cheap as possible, screw the consequences," will continue to over pollute all their rivers, and eventually Chinese grown food will become so toxic that China will have to import food to feed a billion people Working with the world, China has the chance to be a great new superpower. Working alone, China will destroy itself. When China wakes up and gets rid of their evil authoritarian regime, they truly WILL be great

Hey I love Shanghai. If this happened in Beijing, they'd shot them all!!
