Poly Culture Group (4)

I first heard of Poly when looking into the ugly demolition situation in Xian Village in Guangzhou’s Pearl River New City in 2010 and 2011. The “respect” shown to cultural items / relics unfortunately does not translate into respect for fellow human beings.

David Bandurski’s recent book “Dragons in Diamond Village” is a great read and a detailed study of the Xian Village situation, opening the discussion of this particular case involving Poly into the broader issue of urbanisation in china today (http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/547007/dragons-in-diamond-village-by-david-bandurski/9781612195711/).
