Spainards pist at cheap Chinese shoes torch warehouse, demonstrate
Last week saw demonstrations and arson against Chinese business interests in Elche, Spain when locals erupted over what they considered unfair competition in the shoe trade.
The story is all over the Chinese media and I found one Australian link, but so far, not much, if any visibility in Western media.
This from Bignewsnetwork
On Thursday, around 500 people demonstrated in the Carrus industrial zone at Elche, Spain chanting "Chinese out" and torched the warehouse of a Chinese shoe shop and a container causing losses of 800,000 euros (US$984,000)..Chinese Online Media Coverage:

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
