Did you hear the story of the Chinese couple who refused to move from their home, despite construction of a highway in their path? They’ve now agreed to move.
The couple in China was originally told to leave the house because a highway was to be built on its ground. However, they refused to move claiming that the relocation compensating offered was not enough.
The government then proceeded to build the highway around their property, as it is now illegal in China to demolish a house without an agreement from the residents. The story of the stubborn Luo Baogen and his wife went viral and spread around the world.
Only about a week after the story spread, Luo Baogen accepted the compensation of $40.000 and has moved with his wife. Apparently, they were tired of the media attention.
