Wuhan / 武汉 | final letter / 遗书

遗书

 

平等对话

与店共存亡

要求平等合理赔偿 (on the wall it's written with 尝, but I think it should actually be 偿)

死后政府解决家中老母妻儿生活

 

----

A rough translation:

 

Final letter

 

Equal dialogue

[I] will perish with the shop

Demand equal and rational compensation

After [my] death, the government [has to] provide for [my] elderly mother, wife and child.

 

----

It's a silent protest that has been going on for over a month now, with all the shops on this section of the street displaying banners and posters with similar texts, demanding fair compensation. This is the most dramatic one. Seems that the demolition will start in a couple of days, the last shops there being open for the last day tomorrow.
