The Warriors of Qiugang - Grassroots Activism in China Today

Nominated this year for an Academy Award, The Warriors of Qiugang is a short documentary on a longstanding environmental dispute that took place in Anhui Province between a state owned chemical plant and the local community. It provides insights into environmental law, dispute resolution and the role of NGOs in China today.

The film is available for viewing for free online from Yale e360.

For a discussion of the legal issues that arose in the film, see the article by Alex Wang, Senior Attorney and director of NRDC's China Environmental Law, in the Huffington Post.
