On Monday, February 17, 2014, hundreds of workers from the Xining City Western Mining Company in Qinghai Province rallied in front of their company’s office building demanding that they be paid the dividends for the shares they had invested. Even though the company has made good profits and these workers have been the company’s shareholders for 9 years, they have never received any dividends from the company. Special policemen cracked down on the protesters at the rally. Many were injured and arrested.
