China farmer protest hits brewery

By Chris Buckley

BEIJING, July 29 (Reuters) - Chinese farmers besieged a brewery to protest against pollution and being left out in the economic cold -- common complaints in the China's restive countryside -- local people said on Sunday.

Villagers in the southwest province Sichuan blocked the gate of the brewery and a nearby road close to Shifang city on Thursday and Friday demanding that officials and executives resolve their grievances, locals told Reuters by phone.
