International Economic Development Takings

In Taiwan a family protests the taking of their home to make way for high-rise apartments:

The block where the Wang Family House was located was chosen by Le Young, a construction company, to build a 15-story high-rise apartment building as an urban renewal project.

Although the family has refused to give up its land, the construction firm has already received the consent of more than 75 percent of the landowners on the block, and according to the Urban Renewal Act (都市更新條例), the firm can now ask the city government to help it evict the Wangs and demolish their home.
