Ni Yulan was among thousands whose homes were demolished in the lead-up to the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Without a permanent place to live herself, Ni Yulan now defends the rights of others forced from their homes by lucrative construction projects.
The Chinese Government have pursued Ni Yulan for more than 20 years in an attempt to silence her activism. They continue to harass her and her family, put them under surveillance, threaten them, evict them and have repeatedly arrested Ni Yulan.
